Obituary Condolences


Feb. 27, 1956 - June 20, 2009

John Alton passed away Saturday, June 20, 2009 after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born on February 27, 1956 in San Francisco to Warren and Joan Alton. Paradise became home to John in 1973.

In 1975 he married his best friend, Colleen. Together they created many happy memories with their three beautiful daughters, Emily, Sarah and Hannah.

Some of John's favorite activities were family vacations, trips to the ocean, car shows, Nascar and helping others draw closer to their Creator. John never knew a stranger. He made friends everywhere he went. He smiled with his heart, had a great sense of humor and a contagious laugh. John was happy to provide excellent fire protection services for Paradise and surrounding communities for almost 30 years. In that time, he built many good relationships and deeply appreciated the loyalty of his customers.

John is survived by his wife, Colleen; and daughters, Sarah, Hannah and Emily (Ben); his mother, Joan Alton; siblings, Wendy Alton, Jerry (Sissy) Alton and Cindy Gaukel, as well as many other family members.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, July 3, 2009 at 4:00 p.m. at the Paradise Performing Arts Center, 777 Nunneley Rd. Any that would like to attend are warmly invited. The family would also like to express their deep gratitude for all of the love that has been shown to them.
