John Schlosser
John J. Schlosser, 81, of Saint Marys, peacefully passed at his home at 1:20 P.M. on Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
He was born September 12, 1938, in Defiance, Ohio, the son of Robert and Lucille (Zipfel) Schlosser. On October 14, 1961, he married his loving high school sweetheart, Carol Smith, and she survives at their residence.
John is also survived by his three children: Cindy (Kevin) Moran of Saint Marys; Tim (Linda) Schlosser of Foristell, Missouri; and Scott (Sheri) Schlosser of Saint Marys. John would consider his eight grandchildren to be his proudest accomplishments: Justin Moran; Kristen Schlosser; Rachel Clouner; Kara Schlosser; Kaylee Schlosser; Alli Schlosser; Ty Schlosser; and Molly Schlosser. In addition, John had 4 great grandchildren he dearly loved. He is survived by five siblings: Mary Ann Reed; Tom Schlosser; Sue Niemann; Barb Schlosser; and Ron Hiler.
He was preceded in death by his parents, an infant grandson, Cory Moran, and by nine siblings.
John was a 1957 graduate of Defiance High School. He went on to graduate from the Ohio State Highway Patrol Academy and served diligently for 29 years as a state trooper. He retired in 1989 as Lieutenant of Wapakoneta Post 6 of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
John continued his leadership role as the probation/truancy officer for Saint Marys City Schools. Throughout his 50 years in public service, John's words of wisdom and strong confidence allowed him to impact many of the people he came in touch with.
John was a loyal fan of Roughrider sports and greatly enjoyed rooting on the football team. His passion for St. Marys athletics led him to serve as president of Rider Rooters for a number of years. When not telling a joke or offering a helping hand, John could be found hunting, fishing, or keeping his yard looking well groomed. He was a member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Saint Marys.
Graveside funeral rites will be held at 2:00 P.M. on Monday, March 23, 2020, at Elm Grove Cemetery, Saint Marys, the Reverend Barry Stechschulte and Pastor Tim Benjamin, officiants. The Ohio State Highway Patrol Honor Guard will honor Lt. Schlosser at the graveside services.
A memorial Mass will be held at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in the summer of 2020, following the conclusion of the current coronavirus crisis.
Condolences may be sent to Lt. Schlosser's family via Millerfuneralhomes.net; memorial gifts may also be given to Friends of Holy Rosary Church or Grand Lake Hospice via Millerfuneralhomes.net.
Miller Funeral Home, 1605 Celina Road, Saint Marys, is entrusted with Mr. Schlosser's funeral arrangements.
