On Thursday, November 1, 2018, John Tveit passed away in his home in Hermosa Beach, CA.
John was the Organist and choirmaster for St. Cross Episcopal Church in Hermosa Beach and St. Columba's Episcopal Church in Big Bear, CA. He also performed music for Temple Shalom of the South Bay.
John is survived by his three siblings, David Tveit, William Tveit, and Kristin Tveit Swaya. He was predeceased by his husband, the Rev. Joe Frazier.
A Funeral Service for John will be held at 4 pm on Saturday, November 17 at St. Cross Episcopal Church, 1818 Monterey Blvd., Hermosa Beach, CA. Burial will take place on Sunday, November 18, time TBA, at St. Columba's Episcopal Church, 42324 N Shore Dr, Big Bear Lake, CA 92315.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to St. Cross for the John Tveit Organ Fund. This fund will be used for the preservation of the beautiful new console John helped design but will never have the joy of playing. Our hope is this memorial fund will keep our organ in great health for decades to come so that John may continue to inspire others through music and song.
