NEWPORT NEWS – ‘Don’t worry about me, I just went fishing with some old friends.’
John P. Stratton died May 6, 2008, with his family by his side after a brief illness.
He was born April 9, 1932, in Lovingston, Va., and spent most of his life in Newport News. He retired from Fort Eustis after more than 25 years of Civil Service.
He spent his retirement fishing, listening to music, and enjoying the love of his ever-present family.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Virginia Stratton, and his son, Thomas ‘T-Bone’ Stratton.
Left to fondly remember him and lie about what they don’t remember is his loving family: Denise Barnes and husband, Edward, John Patrick Stratton and wife, Heidi, Georgiana ‘Gigi’ Cruz and husband, Frank, and Kimberly Thomas and husband, Randy. Stephanie Barnes, John Cameron Stratton, Brianne Thomas and Christopher and Alexandra Cruz all called him Pop-Pop and will miss their grandfather very much. He will also be missed by his loving sister, Dallas Hodge of Williamsburg, and his devoted brother, Frank P. Stratton of Gloucester; his dear friend and sister-in-law, Leah Jo Voight of Norge; family friend, Gary Howard; and his faithful companion, Zach the Dog.
The family will receive friends and visitors on Thursday between 5 and 8 p.m. in the family home, 400 Nicewood Drive, Newport News, Va.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to Autism Speaks at
Mom and Dad, rest in reace. We love you.
