JOHN DANIEL CROUCH
John D. Crouch, 68, of Cass City, died following a brief illness, Saturday, June 16, 2018 in his home in Cass City. He was born October 26, 1949 in Pontiac to John Sanford and Norma (Davis) Crouch.
John graduated from the Detroit School of Business with a Bachelors degree. He was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1969 where he served in Vietnam as a sergeant. During his time there, John was tasked with being a tank gunner, searching for I.E.D.s or improvised explosive devices and setting booby traps. Following his service time, he worked on the assembly line for Pontiac Motors until retiring after 30 years. He enjoyed playing the alto-saxophone and adding to his gun collection.
