    My father John was a resident of Clarkston since 1957. He always went to every town parade, shopped at Rudy’s and attended the First Baptist Church on Main Street then Paramus. After he retired 25 years ago, he walked Waldon Road to Main Street to Clarkston Road almost every day. He played softball, pinochle and was active at the Independent Township Senior Center. He volunteered at the Columbiere Center every week and was honored on Memorial Day at Lakeview Cemetery services. It is only fitting that he is buried there near his mother, his two pre-deceased children and one grandchild. He was truly a man who represented the values that a town like Clarkston represents.
