John Rex Cloak

John Rex Cloak of Pleasanton, Calif., passed peacefully surrounded by his family on June 12, after a long battle with cancer.

He is survived by his son John (Ally), daughter Erin, grandsons Cole and Caden, sister Barbara (Jay), and uncle Ken Montelius in Denver, Colo.

He was preceded in death by his beautiful wife Mary-jo.

John made many friends along his path. He was retired from East Bay MUD, where he worked for many years. He was an amazing father, brother and friend to many, but his greatest accomplishment was being “Papa,” the Grandfather Extraordinaire.

We ask that those of you who knew him honor his memory by passing along a kind word or deed, and remember to tell those special people around you that their love makes a difference.
