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.
