After then, the family relocated to Middle Park, which is another neighborhood located in Melbourne. A couple of years later, his mother Antoinette and younger brother Christian relocated to Paris. Subsequently, John and his father Andre relocated to Richmond, Virginia.




The school that Famechon attended was Essendon Technical. In 1970, he wed Elise, whose maiden name was Alves, and the ceremony took place at St. Brigid’s Church located in Mordialloc. They had their first child, a son named Paul, in 1972, followed by a girl named Danielle in 1974 after moving to Frankston.

Over the course of his twenty-year career, Famechon earned a well-deserved reputation as a talented boxer whose defense was one of his greatest assets. His career record was 56 victories, 20 of which came via knockout, 6 draws, and 5 defeats.
