Obituary: John W. Christman

John W. Christman

John W. Christman

Beloved husband and father, John W. Christman, passed on July 4, 2020. He was born in Flint, Michigan on May 13, 1935.

He is survived by his wife, Jan; and his children, Brad, Dena, Jonathan and Jeremy. Daughter Jennie passed on Nov. 19, 2019.

John didn’t believe in telling others “no” and he would talk to a perfect stranger for hours just like they had been life-long friends. He was a wonder at home improvement and repair projects and would help anyone with finding the right product for the job and performing the installation. John was a beloved member of his community and a valued friend and co-worker. He will be missed by everyone who knew him.

Services for John are currently pending. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Ruffner Wakelin Funeral Homes. Please log on to to sign John’s guestbook and share a memory with the family.
