John Barnett grew up in the South Bay, spending most of his time in Redondo Beach and Manhattan Beach hanging out at the beach and King Harbor Yacht Club where he enjoyed sailing and scuba diving around Catalina Island.  He lived briefly in Northridge while attending Cal State Northridge and earning a degree in accounting.  
   After a few years working for a Big 10 accounting firm he changed careers to Sales with IBM and moved back to the South Bay where he met his wife Sharon.  After almost 35 years and way too much cross-country travel as an IT enterprise software sales professional, he choose an early retirement package.
His hobbies are golf and reading books by Lee Child and Dan Silva.  He has lived in North Redondo for 25 years and looks forward now to recreational travel and giving back to the community via the Rotary Club.
