John was born on April 3, 1918 to the late Walter and Marie Wiedmar. He was retired from Porter Paint Company and worked as a pari-mutuel clerk at Churchill Downs for over 50 years.

His greatest joy was being a devoted husband and dad, providing a warm, loving home for family and friends.

Besides his parents, John was preceded in death by his brother, Walt (Pauline), sister Irma (Mac), five brothers-in-law and five sisters-in-law.

John leaves behind his children, Sr. Mary Johnette, RSM (Marilyn), Sr. Sharon Ann, RSM, and John Jr. (Joan), his loving grandchildren, Jennifer (Clark), Chris (Kaitlan) and Erin who were his pride and joy.

The family will meet friends from 2-8 p.m. Wednesday at Ratterman and Sons, 3800 Bardstown Road. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Thursday, September 14th at St. Gabriel the Archangel Church, 5505 Bardstown Road, followed by entombment at Louisville Memorial Gardens.
