In the summer, especially around Independence Day, we start thinking about celebrations, fireworks, cookouts, and time with family.
In 1989, however, just prior to all the typical 4th of July festivities, Janine had a lot more on her mind. On the day before the holiday, the second oldest son, John Michael was born, also known as her "firecracker baby."
|Another handsome Detore son!|
John was named for his grandfather but also because the name was always a favorite of Janine's mom. Side note: the meaning of the name John is "God is gracious."
Last week, we learned that Louis' nickname in the family is "Skinny Lou", so I had to ask if John had a nickname, too. What is it? Johnny Boy. :)
John lives at home and works in the family construction business with his father and has "hands of gold". :) I was told that in addition to construction, he is a very gifted mechanic as well and works on cars, motorcycles, and even quads.
John is a responsible, dependable young man, helping anyone who needs it. A direct quote from his mom: "I know I can always count on John."
Despite having a mom and aunt on television, he is not involved in any kind of media, and prefers it that way.
This is a little bit shorter than the other blogs, but I want to stay respectful of John's space since he is actually a private person.
However, just like the rest of the family that I have learned about, he is very close to his family and very polite.
