John "Jack" D. Buehner, 66, passed away peacefully Monday, March 31, 2014.
He was born in Cleveland on Nov. 24, 1947, the son of George and Rita (Meyer) Buehner.
Jack was a proud American War Veteran. He served his country in the US Air Force from 1966 to 1970 during the Vietnam Conflict.
On June 21, 1969, he married Darlene M. Yappel, his loving and devoted wife of 45 years.
He has owned and operated Diversified Office Machines, Inc. since 1978.
He was a "Jack of all trades" and a master of many; he was generous with his time to help others throughout his life and made an impact on all.
He was a dedicated and founding member of St. Justin Martyr Church; he was a Eucharistic Minister and active with PSR and Men's Renewal.
He loved to golf and was a long time member (and best putter) of the Blackbrook G.C. Slovenian-American Sunday Golf League and the Lost Nation Wednesday Willowick Golf League.
Besides golf, Jack loved to bowl and was an excellent cook (and loved to eat!); but the times Jack most enjoyed in life were those spent with his family and friends.
He is survived by his loving family: his wife, Darlene; his daughter, Michelle Freeze; his grandsons, Jake and Mitch Freeze; his siblings, Donald (Linda), Elaine (Thomas) Hupertz, Susan (Timothy) Brunetz, Paul Buehner and Mary Ann (Raymond) Mackura; and his sisters-in-law, Cynthia Buehner and Diane Buehner.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and his brother, James.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 10 a.m. on Friday, April 4 at St. Justin Martyr Church, 35781 Stevens Blvd., Eastlake.
Visitation will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Monreal Funeral Home, 35400 Curtis Blvd., Eastlake.
Memorial contributions in his name can be made to SJM Church Endowment Fund or to St. Justin Helping Hands, who serve those in the area in need; envelopes are available at the funeral home.
