John Yablonski Obituary, Death – John Yablonski did not endure any discomfort or agony in his final moments before passing away. John, a veteran of the war who served as a navigator for the Army Air Corps during World War II, served in that capacity during the conflict. His entire career in the trucking industry was spent in the sales department, during which time he held the position of Vice President at the Suwak Trucking Company. He devoted his entire working life to a career in sales.
In addition to having a law degree with a concentration in transportation law, he had been a member of St. Elizabeth Parish for his entire life. The most precious moments in his life were the ones he shared with his wife, children, and grandchildren in the roles of doting husband, doting father and doting grandfather. He was a wonderful dancer, and he cherished the time he spent in the kitchen making his renowned zucchini bread. He was a selfless man who put the needs of others before his own.
John is survived by his children, Diane Gross, and Dennis Yablonsky; his grandchildren Jonathan (Brooke) Gross, Katie (Dylan) Cline, and Krissy (Bryan) Dunn; and four great-grandchildren. His siblings, Mary Wentz and Michael Yablonsky, as well as his parents, Metod and Tatiana Yablonsky, all passed away before he did. His parents were his grandparents. Before she passed away, he had been married to Jean Yablonski for 73 years when she died.
