1921 - 2011 Obituary Condolences
John G Ackerlind
-A man of great character and love, born September 25, 1921 in Malmo, Sweden, died May 6, 2011 at 6:20 PM surrounded by family and friends. Served in Swedish Royal Airforce during WWII. He met Karin on June 6, 1944. Married 64 years. They emigrated to America in 1948 eventually settling in Laguna Beach and finally in Laguna Woods.
He is survived by wife Karin; brother Carl (Britta,) their son Mike; sister Margareta her children Anita and Robert, and grand daughters Alison and Natalie. Children: Carolyn, daughter Kaisa (Brian); Claudia (Craig); Katrina(Ken) son Michael, daughter Amy(Cody), and two great grand children, Trey and Harper; son John-Eric (Jayne).
For the last 48 years of his life John evolved to become a highly loved and respected member and a much loved speaker in the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous. He epitomized the finest ideal of AA - making sure that everyone, especially the befuddled newcomer, knew that they were loved.
Memorial Service to be held May 14 at 10 AM Laguna Presbyterian Church, 415 Forest Avenue, Laguna Beach.
