He moved to Hood River after retirement from the aerospace business. He and Marge then built Love’s Riverview Lodge, a motel on Oak Street that they ran for a number of years until they eventually sold it.
His sons, David, Dana and Dale, and their respective spouses, MaryAnn, Denise and Wanda, survive him.
A celebration of John’s life will be included in the 10 a.m. Sunday service at the Immanuel Lutheran Church, 305 Ninth St., Hood River.
