Rev.  John "Jack" Breznau Obituary
Rev. John "Jack" Breznau went to be with our Lord on Sept. 7, 2018, following a long battle with dementia at Lapeer County Medical Care Facility. Jack was born in Detroit, the third of four sons to Joseph and Anna Breznau. First and foremost, he was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He married Nancy Ann Willmy on Sept. 8, 1951, and worked as a copper, brass and steel sales engineer before establishing his own retail business with his wife Nancy, the Seagull Mall in Caseville and Nancy's in Pidgeon. Jack and Nancy's love of the Lord came to fruition after much study, when they were ordained local priests by Bishop Ed Leidel on Dec. 29, 2001. His favorite pastimes were building model boats and sailing on Saginaw Bay and the Atlantic Ocean off the Florida Keys. He is survived by his loving wife Nancy; his sons Charles "Chuck" and Diane "DeeDee" (Czarnecki) of Lapeer, James "Jim" and Nancy Irene (Burnham) of Oxford and Pastor Dan and Denise Lynn (Adams) of Fircrest, Washington; grandchildren Sarah (Alan) Henderson, Pastor Michael (Stephanie) Breznau, Deputy Stephen (Emily) Breznau, Grace (Luke) Rogers, Dr. Daniel (Dr. Candace) Breznau, Nathan Breznau Faith Breznau, Daniel Breznau and Maria Breznau; great-grandchildren Hudson, Everlynn, Carson, Christian, Isabella , Audrey and Adeline; and many nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to Grace Episcopal Church, Healing of the Heart Ministries, P.O. Box 122, Lapeer, MI 48446 or Suncrest of Lapeer.
