John Joseph Motzko

Born February 2, 1894 John Joseph Motzko (d. 3/22/1956 Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara Co., California) was the third boy and eighth child of Philipp and Mary Motzko.  Born in Barnsville, Clay County, Minnesota)

John went to St. Mary's College in Pennsylvania and Marist Seminary in Washington D.C.  While at St. Mary's he played hockey; while at Marist Seminary he played hockey and baseball.  To my knowledge and with the information I have thus far John was the only Motzko to go to college.While his original intent was to become a Catholic priest somewhere along the line he met Helen Sergeant and they married on June 15, 1925.  To my knowledge there were no children.
