Obituary Condolences

7/31/37 ~ 10/23/13 Ordained 12/21/1963
Fr John's departure from this earth was sooner than had been anticipated. But as the Apostle Paul wrote to his dear friend, Timothy … " …I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith…." 2 Timothy 4:7. In the past few months he had been planning for a big 50th anniversary celebration of his ordination. Sadly - he will not physically be with his other 3 classmates on that day… but will be with them in spirit. They began this journey on 12/21/63. His sister Mary was with him at Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles when he died. He is survived by sisters Mary (Chuck) Smillie, Evelyn Emerson, and Kathleen Haddadin; nephews, nieces, and their children; cousins; extended families of precious friends and his Brothers in Christ.
The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 12, 2013 at the Serra Chapel, Old Mission Santa Barbara Santa Barbara, California.
Memorial Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 16, 2013 at St Ambrose Catholic Church, 1975 South 23rd East, Salt Lake City, Utah.
The family suggests that any memorial donations be sent to The Franciscan Friars, 1500 34th Ave, Oakland, CA 94501-3024.
Rest in Peace, Fr John.
