John Thomas Quinn
June 14, 1927 - May 6, 2013
Resident of Sunnyvale
John Thomas Quinn, 85, went to be with the Lord, May 6, 2013 at his home in Sunnyvale, California with his bride Christine Quinn of 63 years by his side. John was born June 14, 1927 to Francis and Mary (Barry) Quinn in New York, the oldest of 3 children. Devoted father of Linda (William) Foley, Thomas (Rebecca), and Frank Quinn; devoted grandfather of Bryan (Shannon), Tommy, Nicholas, and Kimberlyn Quinn. Caring brother of the late Marion Heery, Nancy Margaria, and Rosie Mistretta. And loving grandfather to his daughter's step sons John, Mark, and Thomas Berschens.
John served in the Navy in WWII at Treasure Island, California, which brought him to the Sunnyvale helping in the canneries when they asked the sailors to help. Loving this area he knew he would be back after WWII. John in March 1950 met and married his bride Christine in April, and moved to California where they made their home in Sunnyvale for the last 63 years.
John was well known for his Regent TV Repair business which he started in his home part time while working full time at companies such as Ampex, Westinghouse, and Lockheed. This eventually became his full time job, then again part time when he retired. He couldn't have done this without his loving wife Christine by his side. They were known to do everything together, such as travel, having friends over, and helping with grandchildren.
