Obituary for John Richard Preussner

John Richard Preussner (b. May 27, 1948) left this world on July 11, 2022, after a brave fight with Alzheimer’s.

Born in Cranford, New Jersey to a hard-working single mother, John instilled sisu (the Finnish word for grit and tenacity) and a strong work ethic in his family. He was passionate about his family and worked tirelessly to provide for them. He was loving, intelligent, soft-spoken, and strong in his convictions. Through his work, he took his wife and three children on adventures to South America, Europe, and the Middle East.

John leaves behind a loving wife of 45 years Linda Jean (née Larsen); three children Jonathan James (wife Anna), Kristina Lyn (husband Andrew), and Jeffrey Gerald (wife SarahLynn); and four grandchildren. May John’s spirit rise to Heaven to be with our Lord and Savior.

A celebration of life will be held later this year in the Fall. Lazarczyk Family Funeral Homes, Steinke Chapel of Lake Geneva, WI is proudly serving the family.
