John Richard was born on November 25, 1924, in Hull, the son of Henry and Jennie (Haze) Zeutenhorst. He was raised in the Alton area and graduated from the Alton High School. Following graduation, he enlisted in the United States Army and served in a division referred to as “The Ghost Army”. He was honorably discharged in 1945.

On May 31, 1947, he was united in marriage to Phyllis Eileen Oliver in Sergeant Bluff. They made their home in Orange City, where he worked for the Sioux County Engineer’s office. In retirement, he helped with maintenance at Northwestern College for 25 years. In 2009 John and Phyllis moved to the Landsmeer Ridge Retirement Community in Orange City.
