Obituary for John A. Devine

He was born Feb. 21, 1929, in Bancroft, Kossuth County, Iowa, son of Dr. John A. Devine and Lillian Murray Devine.

He attended St. John's Catholic School in Bancroft, Iowa. He graduated from the University of Iowa, Iowa City, in 1951 before serving in the Air Force as a Personnel Officer at the Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico until 1953. After graduating from the Thunderbird School of Global Management, he worked for over 40 years in international banking at the First National Bank of Boston, spending most of his career as head manager in Brazil and in France, and as head of global private banking in Boston. He received the highest civilian medal, the Order of Rio Branco, in recognition for his indefatigable work for fostering better relations between Brazil and the US.

He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Mirga; daughter, Susan Devine of Naples, FL; two sons, Kevin (Ute from Germany) of Falkenstein, Germany and Philip (Chantal from Belgium) of Tampa, FL; and five grandchildren, Conrad, Marc, Isabella, Sean, and Liam. He was preceded in death by his four brothers, Emmett, Kenneth, Thomas and Arthur; and his two sisters, Mary Elaine Sexton and Margaret Goodenow.

John worked and traveled around the world, but he always remained proud of his Iowa roots. His sense of humor, optimism, and competitiveness inspired us. He will be remembered especially for his love and dedication to his family.

Memorial services: On February 2, 2018 at 1:00 pm at St John Evangelist Catholic Church, 625 111th Ave N, Naples, FL 34108.
