John S. Moller passed away January 27, 2020, in University Place, Washington.  He was born October 6, 1925 to Fredrick Moller and Aslaug Minora Moe Moller in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.  A resident of Federal Way for 30 years, John also lived in Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada; Vancouver, British Columbia (1948-1968); and Dekalb, Illinois (1968-1989).

 

John graduated from Montreal High School.  He married Geraldine Hamel on August 9, 1947 in Montreal; she passed away July 16, 1999.

 

Professionally, John was a car accountant for B.C. Hydro in Vancouver, B.C. (1948-1968), and financial advisor for AAL (Thrivent Financial) in Dekalb, Illinois (1969-1989). He retired in 1989 and settled in Federal Way.

 

John played hockey and baseball in his youth.  He was a true Montreal Canadian Fan from the start.  He enjoyed baseball, scoring the World Series games from 1943 to 2016.  He also loved reading and music, having a great library for both; he was a die-hard jazz fan and a member of the Book of the Month club.  He liked to dabble in writing, as well.  In addition, he was a member of Vancouver Jazz Society; he would write articles in the newsletter Sharps & Flats, interviewing many of the performing musicians.

 

John was always an active guy, and stayed sharp to the very end. He also had strong religious beliefs and was a member of Calvary Lutheran Church in Federal Way.
