John Peter Esakoff, 56, unexpectedly passed away on Friday, December 29th. John was born in Downey, California in February of 1961 as the 3rd son of Wanda and Peter Esakoff. He died too young, but was the beloved brother to five siblings, the dad to three children, the grandpa to six grandchildren, and the great-grandpa to one. John admired the finer things of life… Jimmy Hendrix, Harley Davidson, the bass guitar, and cool old trucks. His sense of humor kept the family laughing. Though knocked down by a serious accident many years ago, John took pride in his beautiful children and their full lives. He will be remembered for his silliness and doing life his own way. John was preceded in death by his parents Peter and Wanda Esakoff of Nipomo, CA. He was survived by his five siblings William (Alma) Esakoff; Michael (Yvonne) Esakoff, Susan Slusher, Shari (Tim) Fink, and Amy (Chad) Thomas; three children Charlotte Erwin, Melissa (Keith) Valenzuela, and James John (Judith) Maddy-Esakoff; grandchildren Gabriel Perez, Raven Pugh, Isaac Abril, Nolan Valenzuela, Marlee Valenzuela, and Anya Maddy-Esakoff; and great-grandson William Perez. John will be missed by his large extended family of cousins, nieces, and nephews.
