John Dailey (volunteer), Facilities Manager
John has an engineering degree from the University of Cincinnati and worked for GTE and Verizon for 35 years, retiring in 2009 as the engineering manager. With the engineering background and a "do-it-yourself" attitude about building and maintenance projects, he wanted something to do after retirement that would put those skills to use and help others. The Caretaker position at FCC was the perfect fit and he has been doing that since 2013. In that role, John does routine maintenance of the building mechanical items and also does building projects as needed for block party, VBS, Sunday School, etc. When contractors are needed for major projects, he serves as the church's representative in managing that process.
John and his wife Kathy moved to Bloomington in 1995 with their two children, Sarah and Mark. Sarah is in San Francisco now and Mark is in San Diego, so visits to California are a welcome wintertime break. John and Kathy are also involved in supporting Boy Scouts and make several trips each year to the Scout camp in Canada to help maintain the camp.
Fishing and golfing are among John's other hobbies.
