A man of boundless energy, valued opinions, and a down to earth attitude, John is the epitome of the American Rancher.  Always known as a hard worker who knows how to enjoy life, John will share his thoughts on almost any subject. More often than not these comments impart a wisdom many do not possess.

John is the son in law of Mike McGinn (he is married to Mike’s daughter, Karyn), and has three boys. He trades help with the McGinn Ranch as needed during the year.

He has served in many capacities in the community. He was President of the School Board for 7 or 8 years (“I’m not sure how long”), and has served on the volunteer fire department “for a lifetime”. John is currently a county commissioner in Thomas County, Nebraska.
