John Joseph McKinnon

John Joseph McKinnon passed away peacefully, at home, lovingly surrounded by his family, on Sept. 9, 2008.
John was born in Dorchester, MA. He and his family moved to California, and settled in Fillmore, which he loved, 28 years ago.

John will lovingly be remembered as a husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend.
John is survived by his wife of 53 years, Lorraine and their seven children: Joanne Peddell (spouse Alex), Catherine McKinnon, John Daniel McKinnon, Ellie Davison, Arlene Daniels, Stephen McKinnon and Lauren Vigil (spouse Paul); 19 loving grandchildren and five great-grandchildren; goddaughter Julie Welch; sisters Ann Simmons and Marie Curtis; and numerous nieces and nephews.

John was preceded in death by his father John Joseph McKinnon, his mother Mary McKinnon, and his sisters Patricia and Margaret.

Anyone who knew John knew that they would be greeted by a huge smile, a hearty handshake and an Irish joke.
John was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and as anyone who knew John can imagine, his favorite calling in the church was official greeter.

Services will be held Monday, September 15, 2008, 10 a.m., Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 1017 First St. Fillmore, Ca.
