John had many careers over his lifetime, such as working on the family farm, for a flooring company, as a service manager at Stockman Ford, Arch's Tire in Glasgow and helping area neighbors, Earl and Rita Fuhrman and Ken and Cindy Solberg. Moving into the oilfield industry, he began his career as a roughneck and eventually began running wireline trucks for different companies.
