John Finn was the Grand Marshall at our Descanso (CA) Fair and Parade in July, 2002. It was my job to pick him up at his home, get him to the parade on time and home safely. I thought it would be a short day!!! He showed me around him home and told me several stories, then we headed for Descanso where he entertained everyone. When it came time to get in position for the parade, John pulled his Medal of Honor out of his pocket and said "ok, you do the honors'. My hands shook as I snapped it around his neck. Then to my great surprise he planted a kiss on me, saying that was the price of putting his medal on him!!! We both laughed so hard. After the parade, I was ready to take him back to his home but just about every man there wanted to shake his hand and listen to him. Well I picked him up at 9am and delivered back at 7pm! I was exhausted and he was still going strong. John was a remarkable man and pure delight! God Speed, John Finn

8 years ago I had to opportunity to talk on the phone to John Finn for over two hours. He was (and is) an amazing, funny, brave and most of all, humble man. Those two hours changed my life and I have never forgotten them! I know he is enjoying eternity with Alice right now. Be joyful that he is there holding her and no longer burdened by his earthly body!

I am glad my boys had the opportunity to meet Jack at the USS UTAH Reunion, the oldest is now in the Navy on the USS Nimitz and the other one will join the Navy next year. I hope they display the Honor, Character and Commitment to Duty that you have displayed in your life time.

Fair winds and following seas....

I am a 1970's era US Marine and have seen and heard Lt Finn several times on documentries about Pearl Harbor. You will be truly missed. A true American hero is gone when we need his type of dedication and courage the most. Semper Fi. John Peterson, Tinley Park, Illinois
