John Hiss
Feb. 16, 1932 - Feb. 6, 2014
DONALDSON — John Charles Hiss, age 81, of Donaldson, passed away at 9:05 p.m., on Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014, at the Catherine Kasper Life Care Center, in Donaldson.
John was born Feb. 16, 1932, in Plymouth, to Paul C. and Helen (Kelley) Hiss. John married the former Peggy Barrett on May 19, 1956. They were the parents of four children. John was a truck driver for Del Monte and Young Door. He also drove a school bus and was a farmer. He honorably served his country in the United States Air Force. He was a member of Saint Michael Catholic Church, but they attended the chapel at the Catherine Kasper Home, for many years.
John had planted hundreds of daffodils bulbs, along the fence row and in their yard, while living on Hoham Drive, in Plymouth. Many people would drive by in the spring, just to see the beautiful and refreshing glow of color, which adorned their yard.
John is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Peggy Hiss; their daughters, Judy (Ken) Skarbeck of Indianapolis, Debra (Hal) Brey of Tigard, Ore., Nancy (Bryce) Gardner of Santee, Calif.; their son, Charlie (Nancy) Hiss of Kokomo; three grandchildren, Megan Hiss, Molly and Ellie Skarbeck; his sisters, Helen (Bill) Shorter of Plymouth, MaryAnn McLochlin of Plymouth, and Kathy (Bruce) Van Gilder of Huntington. John was preceded in passing by his brother-in-law, Jay McLochlin.
