John A. Efraimson, age 66 of Shoreview, passed away on February 6, 2022. John was a loving husband and father and is survived by his wife, Martha; children, Sarah (Keith), Katie and Patrick; and his grandsons, Tyler and Isaac. John was a member of a very loving family, leaving behind his brother and sisters, Dave, Karen and Roberta (and their partners); along with many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents. John was a caring man and a good friend to all. He will be greatly missed. As a passionate and talented guitarist, he played in local bands his entire life. Music was his great joy and he passed that love on to his children. John suffered a traumatic brain injury which sadly ended his ability to play his beloved guitars. John will be interred at Fort Snelling in a private family gathering. A Celebration of Life, in his honor, will be held in the Spring of 2022.
Memorials are asked to be directed, in John’s name, to the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance, Roseville, MN.
