On September 25, 2021, John passed on from this place surrounded by a loving circle of family. He was 88 years old and survived by his wife, Linn; his daughter, Barbara; his sons, Drew, Chris, Mike, Jeff, and Tim. John was a loving grandfather to: Allie, Bryce, Anna, Max, Aska, Taiki, Julia, Megan, Ian, Quinn, Jackson, Ava, and Michael John. [This is starting to sound like “the begats” of Genesis…]. He left a legacy.
John was reunited with his mother, Jeanette; daughter-in-law, Kelly; and sons, Robert and Steve; and granddaughter, Ashlynn. John served his government through 46 years of service. He served in the Air Force and then 37 years at the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta.
John loved spending time with his family. Over the years, he enjoyed: playing ukulele with friends, woodworking, fixing and breaking computers, tasting bourbon with his sons, and fixing Volkswagen “bugs” while inventing new curse words.
John will be loved and missed by his family, friends, and loved ones. He was a comic to those who chatted with him, a rock to those who relied on him, and a source of love for those who had the pleasure to know him.
