John James Cychosz, age 69, passed away Monday morning, September 13, 2021, following a short illness.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, September 18, 2021, at Refuge (Good News Fellowship Church), 801 Cty Rd HH, Stevens Point. Friends and family will gather to share memories on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until the time of service at Refuge.

John was born November 1, 1951, in Stevens Point, the son of Peter and Stella (Wojtalewicz) Cychosz. He graduated from Pacelli High School in 1969 and UWSP in 1973.

John married the love of his life, Dorothy Kosmalski, his “brown-eyed girl” on June 15, 1974, in Rosholt at Saint Adalbert’s Church.

John enjoyed his family and especially his grandchildren. He devoted much of his career to ministry serving as an associate pastor, school administrator, and many volunteer positions. John’s service to the Lord was described as, “the best of the best” by a fellow minister. He was also involved in agriculture and was an entrepreneur. His interests included outdoor sports, polka dancing, and operating heavy equipment. Most of all, John was a friend to all those he met.

John is survived by his wife Dorothy; his three children: Brian Cychosz, Stevens Point; Mary (Mike) Newman, Brooklyn Park, Minn.; and Jeremy (Jamie) Cychosz, Monroe, LA, and his grandchildren Hannah and Faith Newman; Gloria, Tyler, Isaac, Eliott, and Isabela Cychosz. He was preceded in death by his parents Peter and Stella Cychosz, and his mother-in-law, Virginia Kosmalski.

A memorial in John’s name will be established at a later date.
