John is preceded in death by his parents
James and Barbara Funk and survived by
his sister and her husband, Lois and
Marty Settle; a brother William "Billy"
Funk; two nieces and one nephew, Annie,
Daniel and Kristen Settle.
John forged his career at Washington Gas
and retired earlier this year after more
than 30 years of service.
John was truly one of the nicest people
you would ever meet, never showing up
empty handed and always appreciative and
generous. Those who knew him best know
what a tragic loss this is.
John enjoyed the simpler things in life
like driving to Hatteras for the day,
and visiting and exploring places he had
never been and he never passed up the
opportunity to fish. There is no doubt
John will be sorely missed by many!
