John was born to Clyde and Margaret (Lyons) Dusing of Chicago, IL. On May 13th, 1961 he married Marianne (Bonura) in Chicago. John and Mariann had a long and beautiful life together. Sometimes there were challenges, but there was always a lot of joy and laughter too as they raised their two sons James and Richard. John met every challenge with hard work, humor and perseverance. John attended Triton College in River Grove, IL, where he took classes in engineering and drafting. He was a long time employee of the Spraying Systems Company of Wheaton, IL. John was well liked by many of his co-workers and employees and known for his sense of fairness, humor, and practical jokes. He loved to brag that all the best cooks worked in his department. Christmas was his favorite food extravaganza. John's favorite thing to do was to spend time with his family. He loved hosting pig roasts and sitting and chatting with relatives and friends. When possible, John would go fishing on Lake Michigan or in Canada. Travel held a special attraction for the couple and they always looked forward to the next new place to explore. At home, John was an avid hockey fan and rooted for the Tampa Bay Lightning. He was well known for his sense of humor and love of good food.
