He genuinely and altruistically enjoyed helping people have fun. The traditions of various holidays were one of John's favorite parts of family life. Whether it was making sure the pear was properly placed on the Christmas tree, making sure there was a big enough turkey for Thanksgiving, running through the ski village on New Years Eve, or perfectly grilling steaks on the Fourth of July, making sure that everyone enjoyed the holidays was on of John's passions. Even on his own birthday John would be working hard to make sure everyone had a good time and had plenty to eat. The prodigy of this great oak tree will continue into the future as examples have of a caring and nurturing husband, father, grandfather and friend. John is truly and undoubtedly enjoying heaven, and we know heaven is enjoying him. Survivors include his wife, Jackie; four children, Mary and nourishes a sprawling canopy, Jack and John's bond has provided the strength and direction to nourish and touch thousands of lives around them. In business, John and Jack built houses for over 40 years. In 1964, they founded Wisconsin Lumber and were charter members of the Fox Valley Home Builders Association. The true value in John's life is the thousands of people he touched. He would stop anything he was doing to take the time to talk to a perfect stranger at Krueger's Hardware Store or dust the snow off a fallen skier at Ski Brule. In his lifetime John worked and played hard. Others have said that there was no difference for him between work and play. Anyone who knew John has memories filled with his unselfish care for other people. No matter what he did he was always looking out for other people. When musky fishing with him, he would hand the pole with the biggest fish to someone else. When hunting, he would put others in the "best spot." If you ever went skiing with him he would have you pick the best run. Many people stopped by the ski cottage to say hello, and within minutes found themselves with OFM Cap.
