John enjoyed estate sales and auctions and his many finds contributed to his love of collecting.

John is survived by his siblings Burneal Albin, Colo.; Norma Martin, Fla.; Theresa (William) Hollar, Fla.; Dorothy Lingk, Minn.; George Nellermoe, Minn.; Genevieve Dahl, S.D.; nieces and nephews; and friends.
