John Coughlin, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and son left this life into glory on February 19, 2023.
John was predeceased by his mother and father Donald and Marie, brothers Mark and Pat and stepson Tyler. He is survived by his wife Andrea, daughters Christine, Jody, Rebecca and stepson Matthew. Also survived by sons-in-law Chris, Doug, Heath, and daughter-in -law Kathryn. John was a loving grandfather to Samantha, Wyatt, Taylor, Kohl, Olivia, Jonny, Jak and Gavin.
John was born October 26th, 1950 in San Bernardino CA. He grew up in the Southern California area. After graduating Pacific High School, John married and started a family with Suzanne. They lived in Crestline CA. During this time, he ventured into the family Water Works business until he had a calling to move out of the state. John and family picked up and moved to a new and different kind of life on a farm in Hayden Lake, Idaho. They raised cattle, pigs, chickens, rabbits, and even goats. While living in Idaho, John worked for Western Utilities Supply Company as a Sales Manager and quickly climbed the corporate ladder. He moved his family to Redmond, WA in 1985 to take a position as President of the company. He had a goal to retire at an early age and he accomplished it!
John married current wife Andrea in 1993. They lived in Redmond, WA for a few years and then made the decision to retire in Sequim, Washington where they lived a peaceful, quiet and happy life together.
John had many hobbies. He enjoyed bird watching, smoking meat, farming, woodworking, hunting and his most favorite, fishing. Deep sea fishing, river fishing or lake, it didn’t matter, he loved them all. John shared his passion for fishing with his grandchildren and created long lasting memories. He was a family man and a man of God. He had a big heart and giving nature and the simplest pleasures in life brought him great joy. We will miss him dearly but he will forever be in our hearts.
Funeral Services will be held at Olympic View Church in Sequim, WA (503 N. Brown Road) on May 6th, 2023 at 1pm. Reception to follow - light refreshments will be served.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made to your favorite charity or to Olympic View Church in honor of John. Thank you!
