December 31, 1946 - March 19, 2014

John was born in Kingman, AZ and grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. He moved to Amador County in 1972 where he worked for Pacific Bell. He transferred to Folsom, CA in 1982 and retired from Pacific Bell after 31 years, moving to Oregon in 2001. He was an avid fisherman and was known as an expert by all he knew. John’s favorite line was “Women love me” - “Fish fear me” The fish in heaven better watch out!

He is survived by his beloved wife of 30 years, Lynn Atkeson. He will be greatly missed by his much loved step daughter Alicia Ghiorso and his grandchildren Brandon, Amy, Aaron and Kyleigh Ghiorso.

John is preceded in death by his father Allen Atkeson and his mother Charlotte (Kyle) Atkeson.
