Kingman, Arizona -
John Tobin, a resident and friend to many in Kingman, Arizona, passed
to eternity on Sept. 26, 2019 surrounded by his family.
John is survived by his nephew Andrew (Melissa) Harvey; niece
Rosemarie (James) Kruschinsky; and nephew Raymond James (Marta)
Harvey. John is also survived by his great nephews and nieces Andrew
Harvey II, Krista Harvey, Andrew (Courtney) Peters, Atalie (John)
Brumfield; and his great-great nephews and nieces and many cousins.
John is preceded in death by his father John Tobin; mother Myrtle
Tobin, sister Carolyn Harvey and brother-in-law Raymond Harvey Sr.
John, “Uncle Jack” was born July 27, 1955 in Los Angeles, California.
However, John spent the majority of his life in Thousand Oaks,
California. There he worked in security and took care of his mother.
In his later years, he and his mother moved to Las Vegas, Nevada where
he worked in stock market trading. In 2012, John moved to Kingman to
be closer to family. He took a position as a security guard working at
White Cliffs Middle School where he became a friend to all.
John was a loving uncle who enjoyed being with his family and friends,
often spending late nights playing cards in Vegas fashion with his
nephews and nieces and making his favorite snack, popcorn, for his
friends. Although John had no children of his own, he was very fond of
his students and cared for them deeply, often going above and beyond
to make sure they were safe and were having a good time in school.
A memorial service will be held on Monday, Oct. 7, 2019 at 2 p.m. in
the White Cliffs Middle School cafeteria to celebrate John’s life.
Every one of his friends and colleagues are invited. Pastor Raymond
Harvey and Pastor Marta Harvey will officiate. In lieu of flowers,
please send donations to White Cliffs Middle School that will be put
towards a scholarship fund in memory of John Tobin.
