John Abraham Latoof Obituary
JOHN ABRAHAM LATOOF 1932-2015 John Abraham Latoof, 83, passed away peacefully in his home in Riverside, California, early Thursday morning, September 10, 2015. John was born February 21, 1932 to Isaac and Mary (Gardner) Latoof in Haynesville, Louisiana. He graduated in 1950 from Homer High School in Louisiana and enlisted in the U.S. Air Force where he served from 1951 to 1955. John met his beloved wife of 60 years, Carol Ann (Fritz) Latoof on Christmas day. They married in Riverside on September 4, 1955 and had two children. John was an active member of his community. He was a Boy Scout Leader, a member of the Elks Lodge No. 643 and a member of Eden Lutheran Church. John was a talented Painting Contractor, a trade he learned from his father-in-law. He retired from it in 1994 and spent 12 wonderful years traveling with his wife Carol in their RV exploring the United States and Canada. They would often volunteer as campground hosts, which he continued to do at Lake Perris State Park after they settled again in Riverside. John is survived by his loving wife Carol; son David Latoof and Sallly Swan of Mendocino, CA; daughter Cathy Latoof and John Shober of Cockeysville, MD; four grandchildren, Amber, Ashley, Cody and Sophie; two great grandchildren Bodie and Tyler; his brother Raymond Latoof; sister Beverly Grove and many wonderful friends.
