Age 79, passed away on January 28, 2024, at home surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Flint, MI, on April 23, 1944, the son of the late Raleigh and Eulane (Bennett) Pincumbe. John was kind, loving, and generous. He had a wonderful personality and was a joy to know. On June 26, 1965, he married the love of his life Linda Pincumbe who preceded him in passing in 2017. John worked hard in the banking industry and together with Linda made their home in Schoolcraft, MI. John was an avid sports fan and loved being involved with local sports and activities. He was known as the “Voice of the Schoolcraft Eagles” serving as the announcer for more than forty-two years. He also served as the President of the Eagles athletic boosters. John was always proud to be from Schoolcraft and made many friends he felt were like family. He enjoyed Friday dinners with the “Schoolcraft Mafia”, a group of Schoolcraft parents that became life-long friends. John also looked forward to trivia nights with the “No Eye Deer” team of friends. His children often joked that John was the mayor of Schoolcraft because he couldn’t get through town without seeing someone he knew. He also found ways to serve the community. One of his proudest accomplishments was assisting with the development of Schoolcraft’s Roy Davis Football Complex. He was a member of the Kalamazoo County Sheriff Reserves, the Free Masons, and Shriners Club. He had a special place in his heart for animals and was very fond of his pet dog “Baxter” and cat, “Chloe”. Above all John loved his family. He was especially proud of his children and grandchildren and leaves them with the legacy of a life well lived. John’s smile, laughter and his love for his small-town community will be missed by all. He is survived by three children, Janie (Brad) Pincumbe-Gillaspie, Greg (Dawn) Pincumbe, Dennis (Ann) Pincumbe; grandchildren, Bowen, Gerrin, Talia, Cameron (Arin) Pincumbe, Abigail (Kam), Emmett, Sydney, Cooper Pincumbe; nieces, nephews, close family friend Scott Fraze, extended family and friends. He was also preceded in passing by two brothers, Bob and Bill Pincumbe.
