Jon was an Army Veteran and was retired from American Bridge. Jon enjoyed spending his time fishing, bowling, cooking, and being a diehard Chicago Cubs fan. Jon loved to garden and enjoyed eating the vegetables from his garden. He was known for his loaded homemade pizzas and his homemade popcorn that he would take on the family outings to the local Drive-In. Jon spent his younger years in Michigan, spending time with his cousins and grandparents. In the last few years of Jon’s life, he touched a lot of people, and will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved him.
In lieu of flowers, memorials in Jon’s name can be made to the American Renal Association, 6059 Broadway Merrillville, IN 46410.
