John was a longtime active member of Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church. He was a World War II Navy veteran, member of J.R. Ewing American Legion Post 247 in Delmont, and over 50-year member of Loyal Order of the Moose in Export. John was a retiree of Westinghouse Air Brake, but his best work was his family, and his proudest job was his grandchildren who loved their Pap.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his high school sweetheart and beloved wife of 72 years, Evelyn Ruth (Moonis) Grubich; five siblings, Miller, Samuel, Nick, George, and Mary; and a nephew, Keith Bortz. Friends will be received Sunday, June 26 from 1-5 PM at Bash-Nied-Jobe Funeral Home, 152 Abbe Place, Delmont (724-468-8381). Funeral Services will be held on Monday, June 27 at 10:30 AM at Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church, Delmont, with Rev. Kara Propst, officiating. Burial will be in the Eastview Union Cemetery.
