John Gould of Chesaning passed away early Saturday morning, November 20, 2021 at his home. He was 75 years of age.
John was born in Saginaw on January 23, 1946. He grew up in Saginaw before moving to Brady Twp. He attended Webber School in Saginaw. He had been a resident of Brady Twp. for over fifty years, living in the home he had built himself. John was a retired self-employed Brick & Stone Mason. He was good with his hands and worked on several projects in the Chesaning and Saginaw area. In 2007, he retired from GM after working 29 years in their Maintenance Department.
John was a lifetime member of the NRA. He enjoyed reading his Bible. He had an interest in old cars and would rescue cats, sometimes having to bottle feed the new litters. He was a “Historian” of the City of Saginaw and knew lots of its stories and gladly shared them with others. John was also a collector of items made in Saginaw.
