Obituary of John Krestick

KRESTICK, John Michael
June 7, 1948 - September 14, 2019

The family is thankful that John is now at rest, after a valiant fight with Alzheimer's, he left this earth peacefully with his cherished wife Wendy (nee Kelk) by his side, in their home. Proud father of Kimberly, Heather (Randy) and Kelly. Loving Papa of Kacie, Kenzie and Cameron Armstrong Devynn Magidan, and Rebekah Nefs. Predeceased by his parents, Ann and Walter Krestick and his beloved sister Carol Mueller (2017). Survived by his siblings, Robert (Elizabeth), Douglas (Julianna), Patricia, and James (Nancy). John retired from Bell Canada after 33 years of service with the Leamington-Essex C.O. A lifelong athlete, he begrudgingly settled into watching any sport from his chair, particularly his much-adored, frustrating Leafs. John will be remembered for his wry humour, and for being outspoken, determined and proud, but those who knew him best will remember his quiet compassionate nature. Family and friends will be received for visiting at the Reid Funeral Home and Reception Centre, 87 Maidstone Ave. E., Essex (519-776-4233) on Wednesday, 2-5 and 7-9 pm. Funeral Service to celebrate John's life will be held from the funeral home on Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 11am. Rev. Darrow Woods officiating. Cremation to follow. If desired, memorial donations made to the Alzheimer Society, Hospice Windsor Essex County or University of Windsor (CCAAM Alzheimer's project) would be appreciated. Family and friends are invited to share their memories online at www.reidfuneralhome.ca
