Below is a brief history of my company, my family and myself, which is where I differ from most other contractors.

My name is John Phelan, I am the owner and operator of “Our Dad Can Fix It” Handyman Services. Since 1997, my business name has been John Phelan Handyman Services, but I recently decided to rename my company after the death of my Father. My Dad passed away from cancer in September 2006. He was diagnosed with stage four Cancer and passed a way within three months. My Father was my mentor and my best friend. I never knew how much I loved him until he was gone. He was a caring and honest man. He taught me to be a good father and loving husband. He always volunteered in his community and expressed to many that the world would be a much better place if more people volunteered.

I am married with three children. I make an honest effort not to work on weekends, as I do try to spend quality time with my family. Whether I am coaching a football, basketball, baseball, or softball game, I am always around children. My wife works in NYC and has a very demanding job and long hours. While she is at work, I run the business, take care of our three children, the dog and the house chores. Our family means everything to us and we try to do what will work best. On weeknights, I try to have dinner prepared and the homework complete so that all is in order when she walks through the door. As she spends some quality time alone with the children, I prepare for the next days jobs and assignments.

Our family has a long history of building, restorations and handyman services in this state. Even though I am a registered builder of New Jersey, I prefer doing the smaller jobs that no one else will do. I am very involved in our community in Bedminster, N.J. I serve as the President of our Softball Program. I coach Basketball, Tee ball, Football and All-star Baseball programs. I enjoy being involved in my community for it enables me to meet great people and spend time with my family.
