John Stanley Buhr, 78, of Paonia, Colo., passed away February 19, 2011.

On that day, we lost a shipmate. AK1 (Ret) John S. Buhr left on his final voyage. John was a Navy man, serving from 1950 until 1970. He served on two ships, the USS Chickasaw and the USS Ajax.

John married Pearl “Lucille” McAfee on November 27, 1953, and they had one son, Joe, born in 1962.
