Graduated West Seattle HS 1945 went directly into the Navy, served three years, one in China. Returned to marry high school sweetheart Cesilie Owen. Went to work for Bethlehem Steel then on to Popich Sign Co. for the next 40 years. He leaves behind his wife of 65 years Cesilie; children Rondi Ahlgrim (Bill), Rocco (Donna), Tina Kohls (Brian) and Vincent (deceased); his beloved grandkids, Stacey, Alicia (Matt Bourne), Ashley Ahlgrim Andre and Alexis Popich and his shining star great-grandson Nolan Bourne. He enjoyed skiing fishing and baseball and passed that love on to all his kids along with work ethic integrity and perseverance.
May God welcome him with a smile, a pat on the back, and saying a job well done John....
