John G.'s Story
John G. Schreiber, formerly of Kingston, N.H., age 87, died January 27, 2017 in Little River, S.C.
He was born in January of 1930 in Newark, N.J. to John and Viola Schreiber. He was raised in Newark and had wonderful memories of that childhood, tales of which he told throughout his life. He served in the Navy from 1953 to 1955. Stationed in Boston, he became enamored with the New England area and eventually moved his family to NH, happily commuting to work in Boston at Commercial Union Insurance. John loved reading, traveling, and collecting. He became an avid gardener, mastering the art of growing roses. His roses grew in New Jersey; they still grow in New Hampshire and in the garden of his last home in South Carolina.
His beloved wife, Constance, precedes him in death. He is survived by his daughter and son and their respective spouses, two grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
The family will hold final services at 11 a.m. on June 3, at the Greenwood Cemetery, North Road, Kingston, N.H.
