John J. Scholten died on Monday, March 11, 2019, just short of his 91st birthday. He was born in Sioux City, Iowa, in 1928, the only child of William A. J. and Josephine M. Lanott Scholten.

In August of 1949, he and R. Muriel Hohenshell were married. They lived briefly in California before returning to Ames, Iowa, where they raised their family. John had a long career with General Filter Company in Ames. He was president of the company before his retirement in 1988. John and "Mert" retired to their lake house at the Lake of the Ozarks, where Muriel died in 1991.

The following year, John met and married Joye Lee Bailey Johnson.

About ten years ago, they relocated to Lenexa, Kansas. Their 25th wedding anniversary was celebrated with family and friends in August 2017 at Lakeview Village in Lenexa.
