Our loving husband, son, father, step-father, grandfather, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend, John A. Igoe, age 61, passed away on Feb. 3, 2007 in Park City.
He was born March 12, 1945, in Jamaica, N.Y., to John J. Igoe and Elizabeth Baumeister. John graduated from Wantagh High School in 1962 on Long Island, N.Y. He graduated from Bucknell University in 1966 in Lewisburg, Pa. He began a career in public accounting in Manhattan, eventually making partner at the public accounting firm of Arthur Young. In the late 1970s he left public accounting for a career in the insurance industry where he held various executive positions until he purchased a claims administration company which he has run for the last eight years.
John married Erica McDonald Boss on Feb. 15, 1992, with whom he shared his passion for boating, skiing and golf. They are members of the St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco, where John was chairman of the board in 1996 and 1997. An avid cruiser, John would be seen on their yacht, Sea Dreamer, anywhere from Mexico to British Columbia and especially in the San Francisco Delta region. John was also a member of the Marin Yacht Club, the Park Meadows Country Club, the Olympic Club in San Francisco and the Sonoma Golf Club in California.
He will be remembered as a family man, a fantastic grandfather and great friend whose generosity knew no bounds. John loved being with family and friends whether it was skiing, golfing or boating.

Buses, trains and gondolas doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, but they make up the transit alternatives for the mountain transportation system the Central Wasatch Commission is trying to create, mostly in the Cottonwood canyons.
