Dr. John Erwin Tabor passed away on February 3, 2024 in Denver, Colorado at the age of 86. He was born on August 14, 1937 in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota to Charles and Anna Tabor.

John served four years in the US Navy and was discharged with the rank of Lt. Commander. He served two tours of duty in Vietnam.

John and Pearlann were married in December 1967 and settled in Palo Alto, California where they raised their family. John became a partner at the Palo Alto Dental Group where he dedicated himself to providing excellent care to his patients for over three decades. In 2008 they moved to Denver, Colorado to be near their grandchildren while they grew up. He had a strong passion and curiosity for the arts, sciences, literature, nature and travel.
