John Robert Husel, 35, precious son, brother, uncle, and father, went home to be with the Lord Friday, May 10, 2013.
John was born and raised in Southern Oregon and spent most of his life here. As a boy, John loved the game of baseball, participating in karate, painting landscapes, and working in the family business at New Stage Collision.
John was a skilled welder and craftsman, and was very gifted mechanically. He made his living working with his hands, building and framing homes, and most recently as a general contractor.
John was blessed to have lived and worked in Australia over the last few years and fell in love with the country and people. John loved the water and all water-related sports, surfing with his dad, being outdoors, skiing at Mt. Bachelor, spending time with his family, and most important, he loved his Lord and Savior.
John is survived by his father and mother, Robert and Ellen Husel; brothers, Richard, Jake, and David Husel; and his son, Samuel.
He lit up our lives for too short a time and is already deeply missed.
The family welcomes any and all from the community to come celebrate John's life at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, May 18, 2013 at Mountain Christian Fellowship, 1 E. Main St., Medford, OR 97501.
