May 1953 - Nov. 2018
John was one of four children born to John and Marian in Pontiac, Michigan.
He is survived by his older brother Paul and younger sister Diane as well as several nieces and nephews. John was an accomplished guitar player and loved to learn. He grew up in Colorado Springs but relocated to Santa Barbara for many years before settling in Lincoln City, OR. Most will remember John for his sense of humor and imagination. Many did not know until recently that he lived with Multiple Sclerosis for most of his adult life. However, he strived to never let it slow him down.
A private ceremony was held for close friends. Donations can be made to the National Multiple Society at https://www.nationalmssociety.org or by calling 1-800-344-4867.
