John McAteer, 52, of Anaheim, CA, passed away on September 20th of an unexpected heart attack.

John was born on November 7, 1967 to Jim and Elaine McAteer in San Pedro, CA. After graduating from Mary Star of the Sea High school in 1985, he went on to California State University Dominguez Hills and received a Bachelor’s degree.

For the past 10 years he has worked as a manager for Johnstone Supply in Anaheim.

In 2000, he met Paula Strahler, and they wed in 2003. Their family became complete with the birth of their son Nathan in 2007. Nathan was John's "buddy" and his purest joy in life.

John loved his family, photography, music, Dodgers and playing baseball. The past year he has been writing album and concert reviews and taking photographs at concerts for the website Hunnypot Unlimited. It became his passion and he was very good at it.

John is survived by his wife, Paula; his son, Nathan; his mother, Elaine; his father Jim; his brother Bob (Michelle) and their children Alexander and Julianne; his uncle Jim Iacono; his brother-in-law Keith Strahler; his father-in-law Paul (Rhonda) Strahler; his mother-in-law Betty (Bill) Boswell.

He was a loving husband, dedicated father, loyal son and brother and a trusted friend. He had a heart of gold. Forever, he will be deeply missed.

Private services will be held for the immediate family.
