John Lester Dramm Was born on April 20, 1951, passed away peacefully after a long illness on October 6, 2016. John was born in Elmhurst, Illinois, attended Immaculate Conception grade school and York Community High School. John then went on to Western Illinois University and joined the Marine Corps in 1971. His name is well known in the floral industry. He worked in his family's floral business for many years and then became a manufacturers representative in the floral business until his retirement in 2013. He loves America and to say he was proud to be in the Marine Corps would be an understatement. He was described as a guy with old school values which made him lovable to many. He is survived by his life partner Janet Hayden, his parents John and Bernardine Dramm, brother Rick Dramm (Lori), sister Deborah Dramm Russell (Tom), niece Courtney, nephews Mathew, Erik, Riley, Mitchell and his Schnauzer, Elouise who he adored and loved deeply. He leaves behind many friends and loved ones that will miss his humor and stories. At his preference, there will be no formal service in Washington state, we ask those who had the privilege of knowing John please raise a glass and toast the memories. There will be a formal service and interment in Chicago at a later date.
