The couple was married for 60 years when Alice died on July 5th, 2009.

John farmed his whole life. Rising with the sun and tiring at dusk were fulfilling to John as farming and hard work were in his blood. His hands were of a farmers: large and strong. He worked tirelessly well into his 80s including feeding up to 1200 head of cattle. Other enjoyments in John’s life included time spent with his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed gardening, especially his crop of potatoes, playing cards, and fishing. He passed on his tradition of homemade horseradish and sausage. John was a longtime member of Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Marshall.

John died on Monday, February 18, 2019, at the Avera Morningside Heights Care Center in Marshall. Those left to cherish his memories include his daughter Linda Erickson, son Gary (and Linda) Bednarek, daughter Sandra (and David) Jones, and daughter Rebecca (and Dan) Polfliet, 10 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, brother Roy Bednarek and numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, wife Alice, son-in-law Arvin “Red” Erickson, great-grandson Lynden John and 12 siblings.

To John’s loved ones,
My condolences, and many happy memories of John be with you. And I hope that these promises from Jehovah God will strengthen you to endure the days to come. “Do not be anxious.....but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7; Isaiah 25:8 NWT.
Peace be with you.

Dan, Becky, and Family,
We are so sorry to hear about your loss. I know this time can't be easy, but know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Your dad is reunited in Heaven with your mom, which I'm sure is a blessing to both of them. Even though we didn't meet your dad, I know he was certainly a wonderful person just by how you are, Becky. He raised a beautiful daughter who in turn raised a great family. I know your parents are proud of you and your family. Blessings to all of you!

We extend our sincere sympathy and heartfelt sorrow in your loss. John always had a little something to say as you passed him by in the halls or stopped at his room. Most often during the warm weather he would like to go outside and soak up the sun and get some fresh air~that had to be the farmer in him! Beckys never ending visits to her Dad~shopping for him~ he was so lucky to have her and she was so lucky to have him! Cherish your special times with John, there will be laughter and there will be tears~ but the memories will be there forever! Rest in paradise John.
