John, fondly known as Jack to his family, was born January 5, 1921 in Hubbard, a son of Frank and Jessie Stage Hulburt. He was raised in Hubbard and the eastside of Youngstown before moving to the southside. In 1992 he and Dorothy moved to Boardman.
John was a 1939 graduate of Scienceville High School and worked as a foreman and shipping clerk for General Fire Proofing Company where he retired in September of 1983 after 43 years of service.

He was a wonderful father, grandfather, and a devoted husband for 66 years.
