John Erland Nordstrom, 82, of Parker, Colorado, passed away with his family by his side on Oct. 1, 2019.

John was born on May 14, 1937, to his parents John and Nellie Nordstrom in Plainfield, New Jersey.

He is preceded in death by his parents and sister Vivian Fleischmann.

John was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and friend. He is survived by his lovely wife, Evelyn Bassett-Nordstrom; children, Kathrine (Tate) Nordstrom-Anderson and Erica Nordstrom; grandchildren, Kathrine Partee, Kara Anderson, Ryan Anderson, Savannah Anderson and Tea Anderson.
