John Marston Wiant passed away Saturday, October 26th, 2019, in Citrus Heights, California.
John was born in Saratoga, Wyoming on April 20, 1926 to parents Acy and Ruth Wiant.
He served in World War II as a radar operator. After being discharged, John married his hometown sweetheart Margaret Honey Stockwell, and moved to California, where they lived for 40 years, raised a family and built several small businesses.

After the passing of Honey in 2010, John later moved back to California in 2014 for health reasons and to be closer to family.
He is survived by his older brother Richard Wiant, his three children; April Jensen, Wayne Wiant and Joan Ruzic, three grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.
