John Bersch

February 8, 1938 — October 22, 2018

John E. Bersch, 80, of Sheboygan, passed into eternal life on Monday, October 22, 2018 at Sunny Ridge Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. He was born February 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. He sang in a quartet that produced an advertising jingle that aired on WHBL radio in the 1950s. 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, Esther (Robert) Vadnais of Woodstock, IL, and Frances Bigari of Grafton, a sister-in-law Mary Bersch of Mequon, 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.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, October 27, 2018 at 1:30 PM at St. Clément's Catholic Church, 522 New York Ave., Sheboygan, with Fr. Gideon Buya officiating. Burial will take place at Holy Cross Cemetery following the Mass. Relatives and friends may visit with the family on Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 12:30 PM until the time of mass at the CHURCH.
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.
