John was my step-father but to me he was my dad although I called him father.

11 August 1950-John Stumpf and Sadie Deloss (Sherwood,Brentlinger) Stumpf were married in Reno, Washoe County, Nevada by District Judge. Witnesses were Violet Addison, a friend, and Phillip Stumpf, John's brother.

John was the 2nd husband of Sadie Deloss Sherwood Stumpf.
This was John's first marriage.

After Sadie passed away John remarried a Elsa Jean ?

John loved and helped raise my sister, Elvena, and I as though we were his own. He was such a wonderful provider for the family. He was well liked and respected by all who ever met him.

He died at Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Fontana.

Cause of his death was COPD Exacerbation (11 days) due to COPD (years).

He also had Diabetes but this did not contribute to his death they said.

I will add more to this memorial at a later date.

Father I love you and still miss you so much.


THANK YOU TO ALL WHO LEAVE FLOWERS ON MY MEMORIALS. I APPRECIATE IT MORE THAN WORDS CAN SAY.
