This online memorial was created in loving memory of John Fitzsimons, whose life story is told throughout this memorial website. Please sign John's guest book and let us know you came to visit. We will remember John forever.




John was born in Pasadena, California on September 10, 1952. He was raised with sisters, Nancy and Kathy, and brother Richard by his loving mother, Grace.

He cherished his close-knit  group of friends and his frequent trips to Baja California. Walking on the beach first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee was a spiritual experience for him.

In 1990, John met the love of his life, Dorothy Harvey. They married two and a half years later and the following year relocated to Roseville, California. During this time they have been blessed with a fabulous community of special people in which they have been raising their two precious sons, Carter, 9, and Riley, 7.

John loved his job with the City of Roseville Water Department, where he was employed for the past ten years. The water industry was his vocational passion, and his colleagues were a valued part of his life. True to his profession, John constantly preached the necessity of water conservation.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Dorothy; sons, Carter and Riley; sister Kathy Blackhard (Tom), brother Richard Fitzsimons (Teri), and numerous nieces, nephews, and in-laws.

A celebration of John's life will be held:
Saturday, April 25, 2009 at 2:00 P.M.
