“Johnny V” Carl John Vukonich
"Johnny V" Carl John Vukonich, 71, passed away in his home watching "his mountain" on Monday, July 21, 2014.

Johnny was born on Feb. 15, 1943 to the late, John and Eileen (Esterdahl) Vukonich at Seattle, Washington. From an early age, Johnny was performer. Around the age of 11, he remembers bystanders throwing money in his accordion case, while he played outside a bar in Alaska. He would also play for Yugoslavian family parties. Johnny's dad was a welder and he made sure that he passed the trade down to his son. Upon graduation from Bothell High, he became a member of the Operating Engineers Union, working in Bremerton on heavy machine equipment. Years later a friend taught Johnny how to drive 18 wheelers and he then trucked all over the U.S. and Canada. In 1980, he bought his own truck which he operated. Sometime later, Johnny went to work for Cadman Rock as a heavy duty welder and mechanic. He retired in 1997 due to health concerns and to play his music full time and teach accordion playing. Johnny performed in Vancouver, B.C. throughout Washington state and in Arizona. In 2005, Johnny moved to Cashmere where he would tell you it was the most beautiful place he'd ever been.
