John spent almost 50 yrs in Christian ministry, 41 of those in Youth With A Mission (YWAM). He traveled to almost every continent, boldly & joyously sharing his beloved Savior with everyone he met while serving, praying for, and mentoring many in the faith. John cared little for earthly possessions, but was a friend to everyone, always ready with a smile, a hug, & a kind word. His legacy is the multitude of those around the world who have been encouraged & inspired by his life & are living for Christ because of him. John has passed into glory, leaving us heartbroken but also rejoicing that he is now with the Savior he loved so much and served so completely. We truly celebrate a life well lived.
Predeceased by parents, Robert & Phyllis.
Survived by siblings Irene, Gary (Judi), Marie (Don) Kudrle, Tom (Theresa); many nieces, nephews, other relatives, & friends.
Memorial Service 3 PM Friday, November 12, 2021, at Redeemer Church in Fridley, MN.
It is a place of compassion, sincerity, professionalism, and staff who go above and beyond their call of duty. Our family has sadly used both chapels over the past months. The caring did not stop after the services. They offer their continued compassion to adults and children. With grateful hearts thank you.
