John was born September 11, 1928 in Hamilton, Ontario to Alfred and Georgina Mae Dagg. He married the love of his life, Shirley Phillips, on May 19, 1954 in Belen, NM and they were blessed with four daughters. He was a paratrooper in the US Army and spent time in Japan and Korea before going to work for Santa Fe Railroad for 33 years before retiring in 1987. In retirement, John and Shirley moved to Table Rock Lake and enjoyed many years there before moving back to Belen, NM and finally to Lenexa, KS. John was a very energetic and active father and grandfather; many of the fond childhood memories his grandchildren share are of the time they spent with him on the lake. His greatest love was his family, he will be greatly missed.
