John H. Souther Sr., a longtime resident of Malden, passed away on Tuesday, September 26th, after a brief illness. John was born in 1943, the son of Everett and Dorothy Souther. He was raised in Everett, and soon after completing his education, he enlisted in the US Army to help our country’s fight during the Vietnam War. Upon his honorable discharge, he returned to the Boston area and settled down in Somerville. In 1971, John married his sweetheart, Eileen Clain. The two settled down together in Somerville to raise their family, until 1976, when they relocated to Malden. John had worked as a Steel Worker for the Boston Steel Company in Malden until his retirement. His life revolved around his family, and he enjoyed traveling with his wife as well as playing poker and pool with his sons.
He is survived by his children, James McLeod and wife Rosario of Malden, Fred McLeod and wife Holly of Manchester, NH, Kim Ferretti and husband Donald of Windham, NH, John H.
