John Golembeski, 1944 ~ 2013

John E. Golembeski, 68, died Sunday, Sept. 9, 2013, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction, Colo.

John was born Oct. 15, 1944, to Anthony E. and Josephine Kevlinsky Golembeski in Holyoke, Mass. After high school John worked with his parents doing clothing manufacturing.

He later got into landscaping, where he ran a landscaping business. John became a groundskeeper at the University of New Mexico before he moved to Moab about 15 years ago.

Everyone in Moab knew of John. You would see him rain or shine, cold or hot walking around wearing that big puffy coat.

At John’s request, cremation has taken place and he will have his ashes scattered in Massachusetts at a later date. A simple gathering to remember John will be held in Moab at a later date.
