John Robert Wible, affectionately known to many as "Doc", was a beacon of warmth, compassion, and generosity. Born on October 14, 1932, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, John brought joy and love to the world for 90 years before his departure on August 6, 2023. His life was a testament to the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which he faithfully served. In the words of Moroni 7:45: "And charity suffereth long, and is kind, and envieth not, and is not puffed up, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, and rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things." These verses encapsulate John's life, and he lived them in his everyday actions.\n\n John's medical career spanned decades. He retired in 1992 from the Friendly Hills Medical Group in La Habra, California. Yet, his commitment to serving others extended far beyond the walls of the hospital. As the Mayor of La Habra Heights, a member of the Planning Commission, and the Water Board, John demonstrated his unwavering dedication to his community. His empathetic nature shone brightly in his cherished roles as a Little League Coach and Manager for over 17 years, and as the Mission President of the West Virginia Charleston Mission from 1999-2002.\n\nJohn was a beloved figure in his church, serving as Bishop of the Whittier California 3rd Ward and the Mar Vista California YSA Ward. His love for service was evident in his work as a Scout Master, for which he earned the Silver Beaver Award, and in his time teaching early morning Seminary with his wife Sally in the Whittier, California Stake. Despite his many roles and responsibilities, John found joy in the simple pleasures of life. His hobbies included music, gardening, hard work, and most importantly, spending time with his family. He was known for his acts of kindness, such as bringing pies to family, new Ward members and neighbors, earning him the reputation as a loving, kind and thoughtful "people person." He truly loved people!\n\nJohn is survived by his wife Sally, their five sons, Rob, Steve, Eric, Chris, and Darren, his daughters-in-law, Susie, Lisa, Julie, and Allison, eighteen grandchildren and thirty-three great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, George and Magdalene Wible, three sisters. As we remember and celebrate John's life, we are reminded of the love, compassion, and generosity he embodied. In his honor, let us continue to live by the principles that he held so dear.\n\nPlease join us for a viewing on Friday, August 11, 2023, at 6:00-8:00 pm MDT at the Nelson Family Mortuary, or on Saturday, August 12, 2023, from 1:00 - 2:30 pm MDT at the Springwater Chapel.
