John came to Everett with his mother as a boy. Like his father and brothers he worked in Everett sawmills most of his life. He loved working on little mechanical projects around his home. Though he was never able to finish his schooling due to the depression he was well read and loved history.
During WWII John was drafted into the army. He reported to the Everett armory on March 11, 1942 for his physical. John was assigned to the Army Air Force in the 69th Tactical Reconnaissance Group who flew North American F-6 Mustangs. He was in France from February to March of 1945 as part of the Ninth Air Force. His group flew visual and photographic reconnaissance missions to provide intelligence for ground and air units. John was not a flyer though due to his age and spent his army years as a cook in the mess hall. John was discharged as a corporal on September 17, 1945 at Ft. Lewis, Washington.
Uncle John was the nicest guy and a bachelor all his life. He lived his later years at the family home on 2620 Walnut with older brother Martin. He was loved by his family and his many nieces and nephews.
