John William Foote

September 9, 1942 ~ October 26, 2020 (age 78)


John William Foote passed away peacefully on Oct. 26, 2020.

John was born in Sacramento, California, on Sept. 9, 1942, to Milton and Altha Foote. He graduated in 1960 from Norte Del Rio High School in Sacramento, served six years in the U.S. Navy and then continued his career as a land surveyor.

John grew up in a family who all loved fishing and camping and the outdoors. He and his brother Robert Foote passed that tradition onto generations of the Foote family.

He is preceded in death, by just a few weeks, by his beloved wife, Darlene Foote, of 35 years. He is survived by his children Regina, Roger, Susan and Rick; stepchildren Cheri, Shelly, Brad and Wade; grandchildren Brandon, Elaina; and his first wife Geri Baillie.

His family plans to celebrate his life, his love of family, and his love of fishing with every future family fishing trip.
