John Mayne Durrant
1922 ~ 2013

June 27, 2013. This day our Hero died.

John was joyfully reunited with his sweetheart for eternity. He passed away peacefully at The Charleston at Cedar Hills, surrounded by loved ones. John Mayne Durrant was born on February 5th 1922. His parents were Marinda M. Durrant and William Albert Durrant. He was raised in American Fork, Utah. John was a high school athlete playing basketball and football. After a whirlwind romance, he married Wanda Faye Robison on April 21, 1945. They made their home in American Fork. On their 65th wedding anniversary they were sealed in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple.

John was a true American. He proudly served as a Marine, which taught that freedom is not free. He was honored with the Purple Heart and Silver Star, a true World War II Hero. He walked the walk, but never talked the talk.

John mined silver and lead in the Pacific and Dutchman mines in American Fork Canyon. He retired from the Tooele Army Depot.

John was a master gardener and talented carpenter. He could do anything and was always there to help with projects. The fruits of his labors will be treasured for lifetimes. He was generous and kind. He had a fun sense of humor and an unforgettable laugh.

He is preceded in death by his loving wife Wanda. He could not wait one more moment longer to be with her again. He is also preceded by his brothers and sisters: Kent, William "Johns-Keeper", Stewart, Duane, Mayne, Marie Peterson and Afton Nerdin. John is survived by his dear brother George, his children Linda (George), John (Debbie), and Bert (Sherrie), his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who he loved and adored. He will be greatly missed.

The family would like to thank the caring staff at The Charleston. Encompass Hospice, and Debbie who never left his side.

At the family’s request, a private family service will be held on Monday with interment at American Fork City Cemetery. Services are under the direction of Warenski Funeral Home in American Fork.
