John Joseph Remlinger, a beloved member of the Siskiyou County community, has passed away peacefully in his home in Weed at the age of 73. For over 40 years, John resided in the county, raising his two sons while operating several successful businesses. He started with a gas station in Dunsmuir, and then established a radiator repair shop with his longtime friend, Bryan Palmer. Finally, John settled into running an auto shop in Mount Shasta, where he earned a reputation for honesty and excellent service.

Known affectionately as “Big John,” he was an imposing figure with an even bigger personality. John had a love for conversation and would often spend hours chatting with friends and family.

John loved classic cars, being involved with the Mount Shasta Longrifles, camping and riding his ATV in the woods. Some of his most cherished memories included his time spent with his sons in the Boy Scouts. His kind and generous nature endeared him to many, and he was always willing to help someone in need. John remained independent and active until the end of his life.

John is survived by his sons, Brian and Todd as well as his sisters Kristine and Karol, his brother Joseph, and his cousin Michael. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him, but his memory will live on in the hearts of those who loved him.
