John was beloved husband of Phyllis (Morrow) Ferry, loving father of John (Christine) Ferry and Chuck (Monica Oliver) Ferry, and proud grandfather to Layla and Emmaline Ferry.

After graduating high school John enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1965.

John remained an active member of the Masonic lodge - Delaware consistory - Nur shrine, and a rider in the Patriot Guard. Those who knew John knew of his love to be outdoors hunting or riding his motorcycle, and at home spending time with his family while enjoying a glass of his homemade wine.
