LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – John Lozano Sr. entered into eternal rest early on the morning of Sunday, Nov. 24, 2019, at Sutter Lakeside Hospital, due to medical complications at the age of 79.

John was born and raised in Berkeley, California, on Feb 17, 1940. He was the second oldest of his siblings, four sisters and one brother.

He graduated from Berkeley High, and after graduation he signed up to join the U.S Air Force, becoming a newspaper editor.

After the service he moved to Oakland, California, where he put himself through school to learn a trade, later becoming a sheet metal worker. He joined a local union that kept him employed all over various cities, while being married and raising a family.

In 1993 he retired and relocated to his wife's hometown here in Lake County, California, on Robinson Rancheria. This is when he discovered how convenient casino gaming and bingo was at his fingertips. He became a regular bingo player for many years.

When John wasn't playing bingo, he enjoyed making model airplanes, reading books, doing newspaper crossword puzzles and his all-time favorite, watching TV. He liked all kinds of war movies, The History Channel, anything on the news, The View, and every Sunday evening 60 Minutes.

John leaves behind six of his eight children; Gloria, Darrell, James (Jr), Earlene Drapeau, John Lozano Jr. and Peggy Lozano-Lowblad; five siblings, Mary, David (Barbara), Anita, Gloria and Cathy; many nieces and nephews; and grandkids and great-grandkids.

He is predeceased by his wife, Gertrude Boggs-Lozano; father, Juan; mother, Madeline; son, Marvin; and daughter, Carmella.

Visitation will be at John's home, 1015 Manzanita Circle on Robinson Rancheria starting Sunday afternoon. All are welcome to pay their last respects.
