He was the son of Gizel (Kokoska) Legros and the late John (J.B.) Legros. John graduated from Belle Vernon Area High School in 1972, and worked at Universal Stainless and Alloy in Bridgeville until the time of his illness. He was an avid boater as well as an avid Pittsburgh Steeler fan. He enjoyed spending many hours boating on the Monongahela River, riding his jet ski and spending time with family and friends.
