John O. Plummer Jr
JOHN O. PLUMMER JR
Class of 1966
Passed Aug 27, 2002
John graduated in the class of 1966. He began college at Indiana State University but after one year joined the USN. He obtained the rate of Gunner's Mate 2nd class and had 3 tours of VietNam. While he was in the service, he married the former Lynn O'Mahony (1969) and they had a son, Rich. After an honorable discharge he and his family moved to MI. His daughter Katie was born in Mi. He stayed with Intersate Motor Freight until they declared bankruptcy in 1984. At that point he decided to go back to college and finish his art degree. In view of the number of "starving artists", he decided to study Graphic Design rather than fine art. He graduated in 1986 and became the art director for a software book publishing firm. He spent several years there, began pursing his Master's degree and became a full time instructor at the Grand Rapids Community College teaching traditional and computer Graphic Design. In his spare time he did a ground up restoration on a 1966 Mustang. The colors just happened to be blue and white! He became the proud grandfather of a little boy in 2000 and enjoyed many things with little Stone and looked forward to teaching him many more.
Sadly in 2002 John became ill with an autoimmune disorder that his physician mis-diagnosed. He became progressively more ill and his physican did not react. John died in August 2002 and his family has never been the same since. He will be forever missed.
