John Bannon

John Terrance Bannon was born April 1, 1936; died December 10, 2020. John was born in Wenatchee, WA and grew up in Bremerton, WA, and in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood. He spent summers as a teenager on his Uncle's Tonasket ranch, and served in the U.S. Navy after high school. John was married in Seattle's St. Joseph parish to his wife of over 60 years, Darlene Bannon. Together they raised five children in Bellevue's Sacred Heart parish on Clyde Hill. By education, John was a Civil Engineer. He began his career in the Army Corps of Engineers. At the time of his retirement, he was the CEO of a regional transportation engineering and environmental services company, Entranco. He also served as the President of the American Society of Professional Engineers. By spirit, John was an adventurer. During his retirement, he owned and operated a yacht charter company in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Ocean Incentives. John and Darlene spent many years sailing around the Caribbean, as well as traveling to Europe, China, and regularly vacationing in Mexico with lifelong, dear friends. They also lived in San Diego, CA and Peoria, AZ. John also loved camping, fishing, hunting and golfing. John gave back to the community in many ways to include bringing Holy Communion to elderly parishioners' homes and repairing homes for struggling individuals. John's parents were James and Wave Bannon (maiden name Woodard). John is survived by Darlene, their five children, eight grandchildren, three step-grandchildren, two great grandchildren, and his older sister Kathleen Bray and her children and grandchildren. John died peacefully in his son's Poulsbo, WA home, after battling cancer for many years. He will be deeply missed. Funeral services and a reception will hopefully occur in late summer 2021.
