John was a resident of Lathrop for 62 years. He retired after 37 years of service from Libby Owens Ford (LOF). Some of John’s favorite pass-times where playing on his computer, swimming, watching football and woodworking with his late father. John loved everyone he came in contact with; his easy-going nature was always a comfort to all. He was a devoted husband and loved his grandchildren deeply. John’s kind-hearted spirit will be missed.
