      FAMILY HISTORY
      John left Bismarck in 1938 to move to Lodi, CA. While there he picked grapes and then worked in a men's clothing store. He then moved to San Jose and worked first for Ernie Gregory (who remained a lifelong friend) in a shoe store in Palo Alto. John moved to Palo Alto for a time and then returned to San Jose. While working at Gallenkamps in San Jose, he met Carol.
      John was drafted into the Army on 2 February 1943. He was in Field Artillery--he didn't do the firing but computed in his head the direction the guns should be fired. He and Carol lived in Winona, MS, until he was transferred to Atlanta, GA, in the fall of 1944. Their oldest son, Gary, was born there. While there he worked in the Finance Office figuring payrolls. He received his Honorable Discharge on 14 February 1946 at the rank of Technical Sergeant. His mustering out pay was $200 and he received travel pay of $135.55.
      John, Carol and Gary returned to San Jose. They lived with Carol's parents for one year while their house at 1251 Malone Road was being built. They wore out a set of wheels on Gary's stroller in walking back and forth to watch as the house was built.
      After the war, John worked for J.C. Penney Co., managing the men's furnishing department. He then worked for Herold's Shoe Store as a salesman and buyer of shoes for women and children. Then he moved on to manage and buy shoes for The Wardrobe men's store at 2nd & Santa Clara streets in San Jose. In the early 1970's he began working for San Jose Leather Goods as a salesman. He traveled from Antioch to Monterey. He retired in 1976 and he and Carol moved to Pioneer, CA, where they had a home built. For a while he sold advertising for the Amador Dispatch.
      OBITUARY
      Following is John's obituary from the San Jose Mercury News of 19 Apr 1991:
      "A memorial service was held Thursday in Sutter Creek for John Weisenburger, a worker in shoe and leather goods sales in San Jose for 30 years, who died Tuesday at a hospital in Jackson, in Amador County, of complications from Parkinson's disease. He was 76.
      Mr. Weisenburger was born in Bismarck, N.D., and attended schools there before serving as an Army finance officer in Mississippi during World War II. He moved to San Jose in 1946 and lived here until 1976, when he retired and moved to Pioneer.
      Mr. Weisenburger loved fishing and 'wet his line in just about every trout stream and lake from Northern California to Montana,' said his son, Gary Weisenburger of Connecticut. Mr. Weisenburger moved to Pioneer in order to be near Silver Lake, one of his favorite fishing spots, his son said.
      Mr. Weisenburger was a shoe buyer for Herold's Shoe Store for 10 years, manager of the shoe department for 12 years at the Wardrobe, formerly at Second and Santa Clara streets, and a salesman at San Jose Leather Goods for eight years.
      'If you bought a pair of shoes in San Jose during the 1950s and 1960s, you might very well have bought them from my father, who often remembered not only people's names but their shoe size and the style they liked,' said Mr. Weisenburger's daughter, Karen Abel of San Jose.
      Mr. Weisenburger was a former commander of American Legion Post No. 318 in the Willow Glen district and was a member of San Jose Golden Rule Masonic Lodge.
      His is survived by his wife of 50 years, Carol Weisenburger of Pioneer; his son and daughter and another son, Steven Weisenburger of Lexington, Ky.; and four grandchildren.
      Disposition of Mr. Weisenburger's cremated remains was private."
