JOHN R. MACIEJEWSKI
John R. Maciejewski peacefully passed away at the age of 54 years, on February 20, 2022 with his loved ones by his side. John had a brief but courageous battle with liver disease. His determination and will to live was so strong. Unfortunately, his heart just couldn’t take it, and his mom and dad called him home.
He is survived by his loving wife of 23 years, Kathy, son Dan (Danny), Danny’s best friend Grace (John was like a father to her), his brother Bobby, Auntie Mary Marusik, Auntie Barbara and Uncle Jamie Olson, Uncle Michael, many cousins, other relatives and very close friends.
Preceded in death by his mother and father, Sharon and Daniel Maciejewski, grandparents, Roman and Frances Stachowski, Robert and Rose Maciejewski, and his beloved Aunt Marcia Wendlick.
John was an amazing husband, father, brother, and friend. He loved his entire family with all his heart. He had a hard time showing his affection with words, but he showed it in so many other ways. The size of his heart was immeasurable. John loved his son Danny more than life itself, and he was so very proud of him and John was the best father a son could ask for.
He was so knowledgeable and gifted when it came to auto body work, painting cars, and motorcycles. He really enjoyed restoring and customizing nearly anything, and he took so much pride in the work he did. He was an incredible friend and mentor to so many.
John also loved baseball, particularly the Milwaukee Brewers, classic cars, vintage gas and oil memorabilia, Nascar, going to car shows, 70s television shows, football (Green Bay Packers and college football), and woodworking. He also loved music of many genres. Listening to music was such a passion of his. He loved his dog Libby (Little Monkey) so much and he was her best friend. She is lost without him, and misses “belly time.”
He will be missed tremendously and never forgotten. His life will live on through his greatest legacy. His son.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to Froedtert Hospital and Aurora Saint Luke’s Medical Center for their exceptional care, Roadrunner Freight, and NCS/Single Source for their patience, support, and understanding. Added thanks to our very dear friends and family for all their support and love they gave us during John’s illness.
In the words of his brother who loved him dearly, “He was rad dude.”
