MIFFLINBURG — John Robert Stamm, Jr., 60, of 318 Fisher Circle, entered into rest at 7:03 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013, at his home.

He was born Feb. 29, 1952, in Lewisburg, the son of John R. Sr. and Betty M. (Ruhl) Stamm, of Millmont. On Nov. 20, 2008, he married the former Wanda Jo Renner, who survives.

John was a 1970 graduate of Mifflinburg Area High School.

He owned and operated the Mifflinburg Telegraph since 1992. He began working at the Telegraph at the age of 17. John also worked as a printer at Wood-Mode, Kreamer, for 13 years.

He was a member of Christ’s United Lutheran Church, Millmont, where he was a member of the church council and directed pot pie suppers and the West End food stand. He was active in the Boy Scouts of America for more than 50 years. John earned his wood badge in 2003 and served on the Host Corps for several wood badge courses. He served as executive board member for the Susquehanna Council, was active on the camping committee, a vigil member of the Order of the Arrow, enjoyed assisting at Camp Karoondinha, Glen Iron, and was known for making the baked beans at the annual Boy Scout barbecue. John was a board member of the Mifflinburg Buggy Museum and a member of the Blue Lodge, Northumberland, West End Lions Club and Central Susquehanna Builders Association.

John had a courageous spirit, loving nature and an amazing sense of humor. He also had great love for the entire Mifflinburg community. John’s passion was cooking, and his love was printing. He also enjoyed woodworking.

Surviving, in addition to his parents and wife, are one son and daughter-in-law, Jeromy and Shanon Stamm, of Mifflinburg; one daughter and son-in-law, Jamie and John Peck, of Celebration, Fla.; one stepson and stepdaugher-in-law, Eric and Christine Verret, of Selinsgrove; and two grandchildren, Jillian and Gwen.
