John was born in Watertown, Wisconsin, on February 8, 1940 to Frank and Margaret Kellerman.

John married his wife Annabel on September 23, 1967, at Treasure Island, San Francisco.
Following the Navy, John had a career in banking/finance in San Francisco and shortly before retiring in 2003, self-published a book on vintage collectable toys.
John is preceded by the passing of his brother Dana Kellerman of Chicago, Illinois.
John is survived by his wife, Annabel, his children John Kellerman Jr. and Jennifer Onish and his five grandchildren, Andrew, Dina, Aaron, James and Sadie. We will always carry your memory in our hearts.
