John Thomas Head

August 2, 1951 ~ June 18, 2021 (age 69)


John’s life began August 2, 1951, in Sewickely, PA. When he was in his teens John’s family moved to Michigan and found their home in Watervliet. John graduated from Watervliet High School and then headed to the service. John served his country for 13 years splitting his time between the United States Navy and then the United States Air Force. After the service John returned home and worked for Vall Rubber. In his spare time John enjoyed boating, fishing, and driving his Jeep. John was a proud Vietnam Veteran and a member of Least We Forget.


John’s greatest joy was spending time with his loving family which includes: his wife who John enjoyed 28 years with Jamesie (Anderson) Head; two children David Head and Melissa Ann Marie Crouch; three step-children Henry Anderson, Jimmy Anderson, and Cindy (Dennis) Pocius; six grandchildren; two great grandchildren; two sisters Janet (Butch) Fillmore and Norma (Roger) Hanson; and several nieces and nephews.
