John J. Anspach, 84, passed away Monday, January 4, 2021 at Howard Community Hospital surrounded by his loving family.

John was born on August 7, 1936 in White County, Indiana  to the late Floyd and Clarisse (Jones) Anspach.  John graduated from Winamac High School in 1954 and then went on to serve his Country in the United States Navy until 1963.  On July 6, 1980, he married Diane Walters and they had recently celebrated their 40th anniversary.

John retired from Sears after 25 years in sales.  Not one to sit around, in 1992 he started working  for The Gallery Home Furnishings and continued working there until early this summer.  John enjoyed riding  motorcycles with his brothers, golfing and traveling.  Most of all he enjoyed being with his family and going to all the parties, great grand kids activities and family get-togethers.

John was a kind, generous and loving person who always jumped at a chance to help someone in need. Those that knew him could attest to his sense of humor, his warm smile and the twinkle in his eye when striking up a conversation. John was a member of the Vineyard Community Church and was deeply invested in Kairos Prison Ministry in Miami County. John leaves a family legacy of loving and caring unconditionally.
