John was also preceded in death by his daughter, Patricia Lindsey (Robert). He was a wonderful father to his son, John R. Fetscher (Debbie), and daughter, Jenine Zdanowicz (Phil).

In addition to his loving wife, and children, John is survived by his grandchildren Debbie Buriak (Joe), John R. Fetscher, Jr. (Brianne) and Matthew Zdanowicz, and his great-grandson, Rhoen Fetscher.
