He is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Sandra, daughters Angie (Jay), Teresa (Craig), and Jeannine (Ty), 5 granddaughters, 1 grandson, sisters Brigitta (Len), Chris (Jim), and Cathy, and also his good friends George & Tina.
John served his country for 8 years in the Air Force. He retired from Dowty Aerospace of Yakima. At the time of his passing John worked for Keith & Keith, whom he immensely enjoyed working for.
John was a people person, always smiling & happy around all. We will miss hearing his stories about motorcycle rides, camping, fishing, bowling & golfing. Whenever he went into a crowd of people he didn’t know he walked away with new friends and stories. You were loved by many and will be missed by all.
A private family service is planned. For extended family & friends, a celebration of John’s life will be held towards the end of summer. Details will be announced at a later date.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be given to North Star Lodge & Cottage in the Meadow.
