A true Officer and Gentleman.
John died suddenly on September 11, 2020. John grew up in North Branch, Minnesota. He was the youngest son of Ronald and Beverly Proulx. John attended college at the University of Southern California where he earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering. John proudly served in the Navy as a Lieutenant on the USS Goldsborough. John married Dianne (Johnson) Proulx. John and Dianne's children are Zachary John and Alexandra Leah Proulx.
John's brother, Guy Proulx and family live in Singapore, Singapore. John lived life with honor and integrity. He dearly loved his family and friends. For John, there was nothing better than spending time with the people he loved. John enjoyed traveling, music especially Jazz, exploring wine country, no matter the continent, scuba diving, cheering on his USC Trojan football team (Ride On), watching the MN Wild with his kids and, not to forget, how much he enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson onto new adventures.
We look forward to celebrating you, John Proulx. A private celebration of life will be held for John Edward Proulx on Sunday, August 22, 2021.
We love you

Diane, Alex and Zach, You are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. You have been wonderful neighbors and we want you to know that your laughter and friendly "hello's" have been a ray of sunshine each day. We will miss John. It seems like it was only a few months ago I was reffing with John on the soccer fields and sharing a good laugh. He always kept a cool head, his sense of humor, a fair-minded approach, and a spirit of enjoyment so that the players could have a great game. John was a shining light wherever he went. We hope that you are comforted by many good memories of John and take pride in knowing what a good man he was. ~Mary Ann & Randy
