[Hudson Herald, June 17, 1993]

Funeral services for John M. Breakenridge, 46, of 122 Michelle Drive, were held at 10:30 a.m., Wednesday, June 16, 1993 from the Hudson Community Church, with Pastor Jerry Stevens officiating. A Masonic Memorial Service was conducted by Coin Lodge of Reinbeck at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday evening. Interment was in the Buckingham Cemetery, Traer, with French-Hand Funeral Home, Reinbeck in charge of arrangements.

John passed away at 11:00 p.m., Saturday evening at Covenant Medical Center. He had suffered with cancer for the past 4 years, and was hospitalized intermittently the past 8 months.

Born May 11, 1947 at Waterloo, he was the son of J. Maxwell and Wanda Wave Downing Breakenridge. He received his elementary schooling in Dinsdale School and then graduated from North Tama High School, Traer, with the class of 1965.

On March 20, 1971, he was united in marriage to Miss Leslie Kay Olson of Eagle Center, Iowa. The couple resided a short time in Waterloo and then moved to Hudson where they since resided. John was employed in the Bindery Department of the Control-O-Fax Company in Waterloo for 25 years until his health forced his retirement in October, 1992.

He was a member of the Hudson Community Church, Masonic Coin Lodge in Reinbeck, ElKahir Shrine and Shrine Oriental Band and an active participant in each as long as his heal permitted.

John was an avid supporter of the Hudson Community School and all it's educational, sports and activities programs. He and Les opened their home to Hudson's young people on many occasions, which led to his being honored by the 1993 Class A State Basketball Champions and the coaching staff upon their triumphant return home from Des Moines this past March. Well-respected by all who knew him, John will be deeply missed in the community.

Preceding him in death were his parents, and a brother William Ralph.

Surviving are his wife, Leslie Kay of Hudson, a daughter, Nicole M. at home in Hudson; and a sister, Janis L. Herman of Dinsdale and three nephews.

A memorial fund is being established.
