Our beloved dad, grandpa, brother, and friend passed away Friday August 4, 2017 at home from natural causes at the age of 85.
John was born May 8, 1932 in Werner, ND to Margaret and Mike Jassek. He attended country school and in July of 1952 he enlisted in the US Army. He was discharged in 1954 and in 1955 he married his loving wife A. Jane Engel.
All three daughters were born in Bismarck, ND and in 1965 the family moved to Missoula. He started work as a millwright at Van Evans and retired from L.P.
One of his biggest joys was fishing at Georgetown Lake. He also enjoyed gardening and spending time with his fellow veterans. He looked forward to his oldest grandson, D.J. coming over and playing guitar with him. He also loved visiting with his three other grandsons; Shane, Nicholas, and Jeremy. He enjoyed his two best friends Sasha and Sadie.
Our family wishes to express our sincere gratitude to the International Heart Institute, Dr. Murney and the entire hospice team. A very special thank you to Elaine and her whole family.
