Harlan

John I. Firth, III, 76, of Harlan, Indiana, passed away Tuesday, January 3, 2023 at Parkview Regional Medical Center. 

John was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania on May 20, 1946, a son of the late Pauline (Schnirel) & John Firth, Jr.

John worked as a mechanic at International Harvester, which later became Navistar, and retired after working there 37 years. He was a real car enthusiast, whether it was working on them, collecting them, or watching NASCAR and drag races. One of his favorites in his collection was a prototype fiberglass Harvester Scout body he saved after the Scout program was discontinued. John was also a great handy man. He could fix about anything from carpentry to electrical. He also enjoyed woodworking, making many projects for his home.

He will be deeply missed by his wife, Nancy; children, Jodi (Scott) Huerter & John (Brenda) Firth, IV; & grandchildren, Jace & Keira Huerter, & Ethan, Thomas, & Stephen Firth.
