John David Shumway
Our beloved John passed away of natural causes on the 5th of January 2022. John was born on a sunny March day in Portland, Oregon. He was raised in a home on the banks of the Clackamas River. It was there he found his love of nature and the outdoors. John attended Redland Elementary School and David Douglas High School and formed friendships that he carried with him throughout his life.
John worked as a Tool & Die Maker for TVT Die Casting, Precision Interconnect, and later Steven's Tool & Die. He also took pride in his own tooling business in Oregon City.
Always an adventurer, no challenge was too big. His greatest love was skiing with his friends, hiking with his son Geoffrey, and spending time outdoors with his wife Jodi. As a child, John always enjoyed being in the outdoors with his family and that stayed with him his entire life. He was a wonderful son, brother, father and husband. It would be next to impossible to love anyone more than we love our John.
John leaves behind his wife Jodi and son Geoffrey Shumway, both of Oregon City. Sisters Catherine Anderson and husband Ezra of Damascus Oregon, Christine Herrle and husband Ryan of Portland Oregon. Mother and Father, Sally and David Shumway, of Woodburn Oregon.
A Memorial Service will be planned for a future date. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Mt Hood Ski Patrol.
