John Frank Ewing

John was born to parents John Frank Ewing and Katherine Hendricks Ewing in Portland, Oregon. He was joined later by twin siblings Andy and Anne and later by sister Maggie. He attended Ainsworth and Beaumont Elementary Schools and Grant High School followed by Multnomah Junior College, Oregon State and Portland State Universities. It was at Multnomah that John met the love of his life, Kumiko Kohama. They married on December 29, 1971 and were blessed by the birth of their daughter Jennifer. John was brilliant and made a career as a C.P.A. for four years before finding his true passion in computer programming at various tech firms. John was a truly unique human being and a gifted musician. He loved playing the piano and guitar and could play almost any instrument he picked up. He shared his musical gift throughout his life, playing for the Grant High Vocal Ensemble, at his church and for special events, family get togethers, and was always working on new music. He had a great curiosity about all things, a fun but also deep and reflective side and he loved Jesus. He was gentle, kind and open hearted. John was proceeded in death by his parents and survived by his loving wife, Kumiko, his daughter Jennifer, her husband Mark, his two grandsons Hudson and Jonah, and siblings. He will be greatly missed. A private ceremony was held at the Reformation Covenant Church in Oregon City on December 23, 2021.
