He was predeceased by his infant son Dwight; father Oscar and mother Ottillie; sisters Dorothy (Bob) Unger and Evelyn (Henry) Kinzel; and son-in-law Len Schinkel.
John will be lovingly remembered by his loving wife Elaine of 61 years; son Darwin (Sandy) and children Ashley (Trevor) and Tegan, Allyson (Dustin) and Fuller, Robyn (Kevin) Kenna and Haisley; daughter Shelley (Harold), and children Brandon and Brittnee; son Darcy (Debbie) and children, Kelsey (Ryan) and Kaelyn, Rylan; son Duane (Shelly) and children Colton, and Carson.
John was raised on a farm five miles north of Jansen. He was a man of many trades and enjoyed fishing, hunting, driving truck and being a mechanic. John loved to get his hands dirty and worked on the farm until he retired.
