John B. Turanitza
Class of 1965
3/13/1947 - 8/26/2021
We lost a great Saxon on August 26 ... John Turanitza, Class of 1965
John was a driving force in the founding of our Alumni Association. He and several from the Class of 1965 brought together a few other Saxons from other years to create our Alumni Association. John was our 1st president.
John was also a school photographer and our 2nd male cheerleader! Some of the old photos from Loara's 1st 3 years we can accredit to John's abilities.
John was a character with a love of life and always had a joke for you!
After graduation, John went to Chapman University where he graduated with a BA in History. He enjoyed his semester-at-sea there and developed a love for travel. He married, Christine (Walk) Turanitza (Class of 1965), and had two children, Anna and Michael. They too are graduates of Loara High School, and Anna followed in her father's footsteps by becoming a LSAA board member and its current President.
Once he finished college John became a top selling agent for domestic and international insurance for 35 years. It came to a point where he wanted to try something new and began teaching ESL at night school for the Anaheim Union High School District. He worked at Fairmont Private Schools as an ESL English teacher and then transitioned into their International Activities Coordinator position.
Working with youth and giving back to Loara is something he is proud of. John states, “everyday was great.” As an Officer of the Loara Saxon Alumni Association, he would like to see the students and alumni proud of their Loara roots, and get involved in the school and its activities, not only now but far into the future.
