 John Schertzer, 90, of Algonquin, IL, passed away on September 23, 2018. John was a kind hearted husband, loving father, grandfather and great grandfather. He was born in 1928 in Birk, Romania, lived in Austria, Germany and Canada before becoming a naturalized US citizen. He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Mary, their children Norbert, Gertrude, and Linda, their grandchildren Tamara, Lauren, Nicole, Cody, Taylor, Payton and great grandchildren Francis, Charles, Clara, Vincent, and Owen
John had a strong devotion to family and was very proud of his heritage. He enjoyed watching his grandchildren grow up and being an active part of their lives, going to sporting events, plays, and concerts. He was very supportive - you could always count on him to be there to lend a hand to anyone who needed help.
He loved the outdoors, playing golf, music, dogs, good food, travel and making broken objects work again. He was one of a kind. It seemed like there was nothing he couldn’t fix or build. His heart was big. His thirst for learning intense. He touched many lives along the way and sacrificed allot so his children could have the opportunities he never had. He will be greatly missed. We love you, Dad.
