John Michael Pinkerton

John M. Pinkerton of Warminster, PA died peacefully at Doylestown Hospital on Saturday, January 27, 2024.  He was 73.

John was the beloved husband of the late Lynn Pinkerton.

Born in Philadelphia (Juniata neighborhood) and was the son of the late William and Mary G. Pinkerton. 

John graduated from Cardinal Dougherty in 1968 and enlisted in the US Army.  John was assigned to the 30th Artillery Division in Ft. Bliss Texas and later in Kaiserlautern Germany when he was honorably discharged. Upon returning to Philadelphia he met his wife Lynn while on a weekend trip to Wildwood NJ and they were happily married for 45+ years.

John worked in the steel industry starting at Athos Steel in Philadelphia and later at Edgecomb steel (Mac Steel) in Bensalem when he retired.

John was a lifelong lover of dogs and he would always say they were his best friends.  John had a vast knowledge and love of music, traveling annually to the Phila Folk Festival and many other concerts.

John’s brothers William and Allan have previously past away along with his mother (Mary) and Father (William).

John is survived by his sister Catherine Pinkerton, brother Charles Pinkerton (Tess), sister Anne Suttmann (Walter), brother Robert Pinkerton (Susan) and sister in law Barbara Pinkerton.  John is also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins.

John was very thankful for his neighbors who watched over him and he appreciated the care Krista and Tim provided for his dogs this past year.

The family of John Pinkerton would like to thank the VA for their assistance over the past several years and the wonderful staff of Doylestown Hospital for his care during his recent treatment and hospice.
