He was employed by the Tobin Packing Company for over 25 years, and worked at Wit’s End Giftique after retirement. He enjoyed being in the outdoors, and loved fishing and hunting. John had an impish sense of humor and enjoyed nothing more than telling a joke or story to hear the laughter. He is survived by his wife of 61 years; Beverly Lockrow, sons David Lockrow, Edward (Elin) Lockrow, and Daniel Lockrow, and his grandchildren Amber, Owen, Timothy, Erica, Johnathan, Rosemary, and Kathrin. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews, especially Susan Hoffman-Nahl.
