Born February 4, 1955, in Pigeon, MI, John was the son of Darl and Doris “Onnallee” (Kuhl) Chiotti. He was a 1973 Milan High School Graduate. He married Sharon Tuller on October 13, 1978, in West Ida Immanuel Lutheran Church, Ida, Mi.

He was also a valued member of the Volunteer Fire Department for 11 years.
He loved woodworking and made several memorable pieces for family including a custom pool table and grandfather clock for his children. He also enjoyed the friendships he formed through his pool league, golf trips, hunting, and fishing. The last couple of years as his illness progressed, he looked forward to “Taco Tuesday.” If you were lucky enough to be part of that you know what we are talking about.
