John E. Bersch, 80, of Sheboygan, Wis., passed into eternal life on Monday, Oct. 22, 2018, at Sunny Ridge Nursing & Rehabilitation Center.
He was born Feb. 8, 1938, in Sheboygan to Frank and Esther (Ries) Bersch. John attended St. Dominic Catholic Grade School and graduated from Sheboygan North High School with the Class of 1955. John’s working years were mainly spent as a delivery truck driver.
John loved music and had a rich bass voice. He sang with the Catholic Male Chorus and various church choirs and high school choruses and operettas. John also loved cars and knew the specs and reliability on almost every car ever manufactured. He gladly shared his knowledge with others who were looking to purchase a reliable vehicle.
John is survived by three sisters, Joan Schnettler of Appleton, Wis., Esther (Robert) Vadnais of Woodstock, Ill., and Frances Bigari of Grafton, Wis.; a sister-in-law, Mary Bersch of Mequon, Wis.; and many loving nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents; three brothers, Charles, Frederick, and Dennis; and a sister, Mary Belle Werner.
Services were held in Sheboygan on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Maggie Bersch Memorial Fund at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in John’s name.
The family would like to thank the staff of St. Nicholas Hospice for their compassionate care.
