During his high school years he moved to Bentonville, Arkansas and proudly played “Ironman” football. He served in the United States Air Force and was a veteran of the Korean War. Upon returning from Korea, he was stationed in Moses Lake, Washington where he met and married his wife Donna Lee Mullins. John’s career in security included positions with the United States Air Force Police, the Moses Lake State Patrol, and then after moving to California in 1959 he worked for Warner Brothers Studios before taking a position with Lockheed Martin Corporation, where he retired after 23 years. After retirement, John and Donna followed their grandchildren to Hiram, Georgia. John was a member of Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Hiram, the American Legion Post 294, and a member of a special bible study group brought together by faith but knitted together as family. He enjoyed working on cars, particularly the antique restoration of his favorite 1959 Chevy Apache Fleetside.

He leaves behind four children: son, Allen Law, Los Angeles, California; daughter, Mariann Carlsen, Merced, California; daughter, Ruthann (Philip) Miller, Acworth, Georgia; son, John (SanDee) Law, Acworth, Georgia; and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and a multitude of beloved friends and family.
