Lothar (Johnny) Wacker Obituary
LOTHAR WACKER (aka Johnny) passed away in Riverside, CA on May 13, 2015 at the age of 80 years old. Born 1934 in Nagold, Germany, he immigrated to the United States in 1958 arriving and living in New York before settling in Riverside in 1961. He was a master mechanic and worked at Walter's Mercedes Benz for 50 years. Customers would ask for him as the sole person to take care of their automotive repair needs due to his expertise and his friendly and professional attitude. He also founded the German Club in Riverside in the early 1980's along with his brother-in-law, Hans Firnhaber. He enjoyed spending time with his family and had the opportunity to travel to many wonderful places around the world. He also loved gardening and spent much time outdoors. He will be remembered for his happy-go-lucky nature, his infectious smile and laugh. He will be greatly missed by all but forever in our hearts. He is survived by his wife, Ruth Wacker of Riverside; his two sons Roland Wacker and Jens Wacker of Los Angeles; his sister and brother-in-law, Helga and Walter Kienle of Riverside; sister-in-law, Hildegard Firnhaber of Riverside; as well as several nephews and nieces. He is also survived by several cousins and a grandson in Germany. A private memorial will be held at a later date.
