John Dewey Godfrey ’55

Born in Morgantown, West Virginia, John completed high school in Akron, Ohio, and moved to the Portland area with his family in 1945, where he lived the rest of his life. He met his wife, Margaret “Rotli” Pellischek, while serving in the U.S. Army in Salzburg, Austria, where they married in 1953, two days before returning to the States. John then attended Reed College and Portland State University, and graduated from OHSU School of Dentistry (then the University of Oregon Dental School) in 1961. He ran a dental practice in Tigard, Oregon, until he retired in 1991. John is survived by his daughter, Elizabeth, and his sisters, Mary and Jean.
