John was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut on November 16, 1948 to Anthony and Bernice (Koldis) Golesky. He graduated from Roger Ludlow High School in Fairfield CT. John was drafted in to the US Army during the Vietnam era and was honorably discharged.
John had many passions in his life, his family being his greatest. He grew up in Fairfield most of his life and living close to the beach, he enjoyed fishing, crabbing and clamming at a young age with his brother. He shared those childhood times with his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed cooking, collecting coins, watching horse races and hunting for treasure with his metal detector when he had the time.
John had an incredible work ethic and desire to take care of his family which led him to running his own landscaping company for many years. His outgoing and fun loving personality touched all those he interacted with. John had a love of musicals and Broadway shows, Mama Mia being one of his favorites and you could catch him singing and dancing with his arms wide open while he cooked in the kitchen.
