John Weaver Danforth, in the presence of family, gently passed away on Monday, July 11, 2022 at the age of 71. Born on November 12, 1950 in Buffalo, NY, he lived there with his family until he graduated from Deveaux School. John spent his summers in Honey Harbour, Ontario where his family had a small cottage in Georgian Bay. His time there forged his need to live in natural surroundings. Over the years he would return whenever possible to visit or hunt with his lifelong friends, the Hewitts.
Some causes close to his heart included Second Harvest Foodbank, Couleecap, Door County Land Trust, and Crawford Stewardship Network.
John was known for many different things to many different people... farmer, musician, hockey player, dedicated outdoorsman and steward of the land, and a loyal friend. He is dearly missed by his family, friends and community.An informal celebration of his life will be held on the afternoon of Saturday, September 24 at his home: S5709 Bergum Lane, Viroqua, from 2 p.m.-7 p.m. All who wish to honor him are welcome.
