My Electrical Husband

John’s page for You Tube Videos…Electricians Need To Know

I’ve been married to John Shook since 1963.  In his early twenties he found he was just naturally good at electrical projects and that is where his expertise has been for over 52 years now.  He gained experience at RCA, Maul Tech and Ford  in Indianapolis as a young electrician.  In the late 70’s we moved to California and he went to work at Disneyland as an electrician.  Soon he was in charge of all the electricians and eventually in charge of all the maintenance in the park!  After 23 years with Disney, we tired of the hectic life and horrible traffic and we moved to northern California.   John worked for the State of California as an amusement ride inspector for several years, then went into business for himself, still as an amusement ride inspector and also as an electrical contractor.    We owned an electrical contracting company for 12 years, then sold it and “retired” kinda sorta.   He feels the  need to share his 52 plus years of electrical knowledge.  Go to You Tube and pull up “Electricians Need to Know John Shook” and watch him teach little electrical tricks to trainees, apprentices and homeowner do-it-yourselfers.  Even older electricians often learn a few things from a guy with half a century of electrical experience.  He put together a small “electrical buss kit” to help electricians properly clean electrical panels and is selling them through Amazon and his website He also sells an electrical emergency kit which is battery operated and will open a garage door and keep your lights or refrigerator on for short periods of time until your electrical power is restored. We call it EEK and it is something that will come in really handy if you lose electrical power at home. You’ll be glad you have one and your neighbors will be wanting to borrow it!

Married to John almost 56 years now – he’s a keeper!
