  • Notes 
    • The Pape Database shows John's death date of Jan. 1, 1965. However, its hard to tell if that is correct or not. They will use the first day of the month on the database if they don't know the exact date. However, since he was buried on Jan. 3rd, its safe to say that he died on the 1st. John died at the Hedrika Nursing Home.
