john schudar

John Jerome Schudar was born on October 16, 1943 to Paul and Dorothy (Suchla) Schudar. He passed away on February 26, 2013 at the Sanford Medical Center, at the age of 69.

He will be deeply missed by his seven sisters, Marcella (Olaf) Breden, Wyndmere, ND, Josephine Swenson, Watertown, SD, Dorothy (Gerald) Mellem, McLeod, ND,  Virginia (Mitch) Litchfield, Forman, ND,  Barbara (Ron) McBrien, Watertown, SD, Rosanne (Mike Rebsom) Schudar, Coon Rapids, MN, Marion Schudar, Watertown, SD; 2 sisters-in-law, Cindy Schudar, Sparta, WI, and Maria Schudar, Pueblo, CO; and many nieces and nephews.

He was Uncle Johnny to hundreds of children who just happened to pass through his life. John served his country, in the U.S. Army, and had a very strong work ethic, but his life can only be defined by his gentle love of children.

John was preceded in death by his parents, his three brothers, Alexander, Raymond and Paul; and his nephew, Martin Schudar.
