May 22, 1942 - January 22, 2021
John Ahlin, 78, went to be with the Lord on January 22, 2021. John was born in Pueblo, CO on May 22, 1942. Preceded in death by his parents John and Jessie Ahlin and eldest daughter Vonnie Stransky. John was a devote and loving husband to Elva. He was an amazing father to Vonnie, Pam and Johnny and an adored "Pa" to his grandchildren, 8 boys! Vonnie's 5 boys: Robbi, Jacob, Anthony, Beau, and Max Stransky; and Pam's three boys: Grant and Quinn Possehl and John Thomas Grimm (Jax) named after "Pa". Survived by siblings Janis Buccola, Jack (Kaye) Ahlin, and Jim Ahlin. Also survived by brothers and sisters-in-law Celia and Bernie Quintana, Leah Ahlin, Sally and Ben Montoya, Nick Buccola, Max Gabaldon and Tari Ahlin. Also survived by many wonderful nieces and nephews. John graduated from Central High School and received his electrical engineering degree from Colorado University. He traveled around the world for Gates Corporation from which he retired after numerous decades of service. He loved spending time with his family and especially enjoyed the holiday get-togethers. John also enjoyed going to activities that Vonnie, Pam and Johnny participated in. "Pa" loved going to games that his grandsons played in. He enjoyed his ritual of going to Johnny's to eat, who was not only his son but his best friend. And let's not forget his love of westerns and the Broncos. John hosted family pool parties of which his nephew Nickolas still call "epic" to this day. A beloved husband, dad, brother, uncle and "Pa" has gone but his spirit is imprinted in our hearts. A celebration of life will be held at a future date.
