Jon Christopher Bagby, beloved son of Phyllis and Bob Bagby, died on February 18th, 2009 in Fort Myers, FL peacefully and quietly just as he lived his life. He was born on October 2nd, 1948 in Denver, CO and was raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Jon was a United States Marine Vietnam War Veteran who served his country proudly in active duty from May 1967 - May 1970 and was also in the reserves from May 1970 - May 1973.
Jon was an unassuming, kind and courageous man who cared deeply for his family, friends and country. Jon's many interests included traveling, history, art, architecture, politics, religion, nature, sports and designer clothing. His passion was the U.S. Marine Corps history, conventions and activities. Jon's passing is a great loss to his family and many friends who will cherish his memories and sorely miss this kind and quiet man.
