Upon his return to Long Island, he began a job with TSS (Time Square Stores) as a part of the Loss Prevention Team in Melville. Through his job, John met his future wife of 43 years, Karen. They met one cold night when Karen’s 1974 green Maverick wouldn’t start after her evening shift. Karen said to John, "my Dad said 'don’t let anyone touch your car' " and John responded “do you want to get home? Let me look at it”. John and Karen married 2 years later on May 7, 1977. In 1980, John was blessed with the start of a family with the arrival of their daughter, Kimberly; and soon a second blessing in 1981 with the arrival of their son, Jason.
