His great-grandparents, the Inman and Jeans families, came to Oregon by ox team from Missouri in 1850 and 1852. Four generations of his family lived on the Donation Land Claim in what is now Fern Ridge Reservoir. The remainder of the land went to the Corp of Engineers in the mid-1960s.

Jobs he mastered included high climber, rigging slinger, woods boss, and timber faller. John and his family were members of the Elmira Church of Christ.
