YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – John Majetich was born August 25, 1938 in Youngstown, Ohio, the son of John and Helen R. (Martinko) Majetich. He passed away Friday, March 29, 2019 at his home in West Richland, Washington.
John was a lifelong pipefitter, locally working at Scholl-Choffin and later moving to the Hanford area of Washington where he oversaw construction of power plants all over the country until his retirement.
In his younger years, John was an avid bowler in the Youngstown area. He also owned the ‘famous’ 6 cylinder #1 Ford stock car that won many races at area Speedways including Sharon, Butler, Mercer, Lernersville and Canfield Fairgrounds.
His two biggest passions were NASCAR and the Cleveland Browns. Just like every Browns fan, his yearly phrase was “maybe next year”.
John is survived by his wife, Wanda Majetich; sister, Mary Ann (Bob) Mullen; brother, Richard (Mary) Buchenic; sons, John (Rita), Mark (Sandy), Matthew (Tina), Richard (Kathy), Tom (Adora), Ben (Cindy), David (Sharon), Hank (Shawna) and Jerry (Mary Ella) and stepsons Robert (Ana) and Frank. He also leaves behind numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Private services were held on Wednesday, April 3 at Einan’s Sunset Funeral Home & Gardens in Richland, Washington.
John will be dearly missed.
