John Gritton

November 30, 1947 — May 23, 2014

John Lee Gritton was born on his family's Arroll, Missouri farm on October 15, 1948, to the howling of wolves. After becoming the first in his family to graduate college, John was drafted in 1970. He served his country in West Germany, where he saw the Grateful Dead play at Hundred Year Hall. John's career as a sales representative began in 1976, where his specialty was in audio-visual equipment. In 1979, John and Susi married at Flagstaff Amphitheater in Boulder, CO, and went on to have three happy kids: Jesse, John Paul, Claire. John's lifelong commitment to his family, music, and the pursuit of knowledge continued throughout his brave, generous life. He is missed by his wife and children; brother, Edwin; sister, Suehelen; and beloved extended family and friends. A celebration of John's life will be held at the Villa Del Prado Community Room (635 Mohawk Dr) on June 6th, 5 to 8 PM.
