John was the husband of Bernie and the owner of the Winchester pub.

According to Big Al, John is connected to the mafia. Ed builds on this thought by adding that John is skilled with a knife, owns the pub, has Bernie the trophy wife, and has a gun.

During the events of Z-Day, John and Bernie locked themselves in the upstairs of the Winchester. Somehow, they got infected and eventually break out and attack Shaun, Liz, Ed, Dianne, and David. An amusing fight ensues, in which Shaun, Liz, and Ed hit John with pool cues to the toon of the music. Ed stops fighting to go get the gun, and Shaun is left to fight John by himself. Dianne tries to help by throwing darts at John, but she only succeeds in hitting Shaun in the head. Ed throws the gun at Shaun, who proceeds to beat John with it. The fight ends when Shaun throws John into the Jukebox machine, destroying the machine and killing John.

It is later revealed that the Winchester is indeed loaded, but John’s mafia ties are never confirmed.
