After graduation from Marian High School dad enlisted in the Navy serving as an electronics and radar technician in numerous places. His most notable tour was on the remote Island of Kiska in the Aleutians as part of a LORAC support team during the height of the Cold War and Vietnam. After his discharge, he was hired by Honeywell in Boston and was later transferred to Seattle in 1975. He taught night courses in electronics at Renton Vocational during the 1980’s and later transitioned from Honeywell to the distribution industry as an IT specialist?He worked his entire life.

He is also leaves behind 8 nieces and nephews and 6 great-nieces and nephews.

John was a father, a coach, an aviator, and a patriot. Throughout his short time with us, he took us camping, hosted exchange students, coached kids’ sports, skied and flew airplanes until he was 70, helped out neighbors, family and friends, volunteered his time with the church and supported the USO. Most importantly, he shared what he knew freely. He was a natural teacher. He would never allow us kids to just read a watch, he taught us how to build it.

Dad was in the process of moving to Hawaii where he planned to retire, he was so young at heart. We will all miss him dearly.
