He was born Oct 29, 1905 at Paramus N. J. the second child of the late Mr. and Mrs. William Zalme. The family came to Alton in 1916 and John attended the public school with his brothers and sisters.

Although incapacitated by illness for some years, John formerly assisted his father in garden and other work and helped on farms. Of unfailing good nature, he was of a philosophical turn of mind and was always ready with a quip. He excelled in penmanship and at one time produced the sold beautifully written name and calling cards.

He will be missed by many. He was a faithful member of the local Reformed Church, C. E. and Sunday School. His associates and the entire community join in sympathy for the family.
