John Peter Walsh was born December 11, 1947 in Washington DC to James and Charlotte Walsh. He passed away at the age of 74 at home on Mercer Island surrounded by those he loved.
He is survived by his daughters Amy Dutton (John) and Kendra Walsh, four grandchildren Banyan Harris, Rees Harris (Rachel), Ella Dutton, and Aidan Dutton, and one great grandchild, Sammy Harris.
John lived a life driven by his passion for adventure and the education of children. He was full of good advice and bad jokes (or was it the other way around?) He wanted the world to know he did not go peacefully and quietly. He fought his cancer every step of the way, complaining as loudly as possible to anyone who would listen.
He had the biggest heart, he loved and was loved more than we thought possible. John wants to live forever in the oceans of Maui. His ashes will be spread at a later date.
