John D. Grutzmacher
June 28, 1933 - July 7, 2016

John David Grutzmacher passed away on July 7, 2016, in Roseville, Calif., after a brief period of declining health.

He is survived by his loving wife of 59 years Carmalita (Carm), and their three children Daniel, Martha and Raymond, and their spouses.

After an early career with the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Descanso Gardens, John decided that working for himself would be more rewarding and he became a successful piano tuner and enjoyed his many individual clients and most notably was proud to tune for the L.A. Music Center.

After retiring to Kelseyville, Calif., in the mid-1990s, John and Carm successfully raised seven guide dog puppies for the San Rafael chapter of Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Family prefers donations in his memory may be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital at www.stjude.org .
