His family moved to South Ogden when he was two, and he grew up in the area and recreated frequently on Great Salt Lake and at Antelope Island. He graduated from Bonneville High in Ogden, took a degree in geology and environmental studies from Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington, and became involved with seasonal work on the Great Salt Lake upon his return. After completing another bachelor's, this one in biology at the University of Utah, John was hired fulltime at Division of Wildlife.
