John H. Pezewski, 73

John H. Pezewski, 73 of Stevens Point, was called to his eternal rest on Monday, January 20, 2020, at Marshfield Hospital.

John was born May 19, 1946, in the Town of Rosholt to the late John and Mary (Gilmeister) Pezewski. He attended local schools in Rosholt and graduated from Rosholt High School in 1964. After high school, he moved to Milwaukee for work where he met his future wife Patricia Foucault.

On June 27, 1967, John and Patricia were married in Waukegan, Ill. They lived together in Milwaukee for three years before moving to Stevens Point where they raised their four children. John worked for many years at Steel King as a painter. He enjoyed spending time with his family, fishing, cheering the local sports teams, and enjoying the outdoors with a cold MGD in hand and a tin of chew by his side.

John is survived by his four children: Ronald (Linda) Pezewski, Tammie (Chris) Zahn, Ann (Stewart) Plaski, and Tina (Brian) Adamski; two sisters: Virginia and Luci; 12 grandchildren: Stephanie, Brittany (Somchi), Nathan, Cavan, Cassi, Alec, Amanda, Austin, Henry, Sadie, Lexi, and Zack; and five great-grandchildren: Skylee, Khole, Anya, Kinsley, and William.

He was preceded in death by his parents, wife Patricia, sister Josephine, brother Harry, and son-in-law Randy.
