Following retirement he enjoyed golfing, fishing, and traveling with Ann. He also faithfully visited his friends in nursing homes with his relative and good friend, Jake Hermann. John was proud to have participated in the Honor Flight to Washington D.C. in 2010.
In addition to his devoted wife, Ann, he is survived by his daughters, Bonnie (Gary) Jugenheimer of Madison and Darice Hermann of Thiensville; two grandchildren, Jennifer Jugenheimer of Pewaukee and Jonathon Jugenheimer of Madison; and other relatives and friends.

John was a wonderful and loving husband, loving father, and doting grandfather. He had a wonderful smile and his familiar chuckle we all enjoyed. He will be missed and it will be difficult going on with life without him. Ann loved him deeply and cared for him daily, answering his every need. God has chosen to take him home and for that we are grateful. He is now in a better place, waiting for us to be with him and we look forward to that time. Please know to all of you that were close to him and knew him that he held a special place in his heart for you and that he treasured your friendship and love. Thanks be to God!
