He served his country faithfully in the United States Air Force. He loved his work at the Tri-State Trucking Center. John’s spirit lives on in his beloved children. His humor was abundant, along with his love to help and serve others, including rescuing animals. He was a gadget guy and used his tech savvy first in the United States Air Force, then at Tri-State Trucking Center and the Emanuel Lutheran Church working the sound booth and singing bass at special events. He had a heart of gold and a quirky sense of humor and will be missed by all who knew him. John is survived by his mother Elizabeth Quimby of Waupaca, WI; three sons, Chris Quimby, Justin Quimby, and Anthony Quimby; two daughters, Jennifer Quimby and Ashton Quimby; one sister, Trish Councell and one niece, along with other family, Nannette, Freda, and Keith.
