RESEDA, CALIF. — JOHN – David, 92, formerly of Johnstown, passed away in his sleep Dec. 5, 2010. He was born June 10, 1918, in Johnstown, son of the late David and Mayme M. (Miller) John. Preceded in death by wife, Kay. Survived by daughter, Barbara Winston; sons, Leslie and Jeffrey John; and grandson, Jeffrey R. John. David was a regular attendee of Trinity United Methodist Church and played softball on the church team. He enlisted in the Army Air Force in April of 1942, where he attained the rank of technical sergeant. In Italy, he flew combat missions with the 301st Bomb Group, 15th Air Force. On Oct. 13, 1944, over Vienna, he was shot down and became a prisoner of war. After the war, Dave returned home and married his sweetheart, Anna “Kay” Moisey. During the next 11 years, Dave and Kay lived in Ohio and Michigan, where all three of their children were born. In 1957, the family moved to southern California, eventually settling in the Los Angeles suburb of Reseda, where Dave lived for the rest of his life. He enjoyed the beach, baseball and football games and music, including American and Latin jazz and big band. Dave also credited walking, cycling and the warm southern California weather for enhancing his longevity and quality of life. Per Dave’s wishes, he will be interred at Grandview Cemetery, alongside his wife, parents and brother, during a private graveside service, the Rev. Edward C. Patterson officiating.
