John Drew McRae
Aug. 22, 1960 - March 25, 2021
John Drew McRae graduated from earth to heaven Thursday, March 25, 2021 after a long illness. His beloved wife Tammy was by his side throughout.
John was born at Fort Bragg, N.C., to Howard Amos McRae Jr. and Jean Elizabeth McCulloch. He moved to Haines, Alaska with his father, new stepmother Sarah, and siblings in 1975. John moved to Oregon with his first wife Kathi and sons Jacob and Jeremiah. After Kathi's untimely death, John was lucky enough to find love again with Tammy, who he met through church.
John walked through life lifting up the people around him, always ready with a gentle word or to listen. His life was sorely tested by all he endured, but he treated life's difficulties as chances to grow his faith and ability to comfort those around him.
John is survived by mother, Sarah; wife, Tammy; sons, Jacob and Jeremiah (Laney); grandchildren, Jessee and Jaspyr; siblings, Thomas, Guy (Joann), Michael (Julie), William (Krista), Barbara and Mary (Scott); and a large extended family. John was predeceased by his mother, Jean; father, Howard; brother, David; and first wife, Kathi.
The family will celebrate John's life in Alaska June 28, 2021, and John's ashes will be interred at the family plot.

john and I were in the same class at Haines High in Haines Alaska. John was a good friend and I will miss him. We were on the Haines High wrestling team and he was a hard fighter on the mat. Blessing to you John my friend. God knows you and you are there with him. Blessings to John's family. Michael Fairbanks
