John Edward "Jack" Stoehr, 57, Denver, Colo., formerly of Altoona, died May 30, 2012.
He was born in Cleveland, Ohio, son of John B. and Doris Stoehr.
Surviving are his parents; a son, Shane; a granddaughter; two brothers: Brian and Pat; a sister, Dianne Griffin; five nephews; and seven nieces.
Jack was a beloved father, son, brother and uncle and was loved by so many. He was a friend to more than we will ever know. We will miss his music, his storytelling, that wonderful grin, laughter and gregariousness, his positive outlook, his generous nature, his love of animals and so many other things about him. The world was a little brighter, and we are all a little better for having known him.
Friends will be received from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, June 9, 2012, at The Stevens Mortuary Inc., 1421 Eighth Ave., Altoona. A memorial Mass will be celebrated at noon Saturday at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, Lakemont, by Monsignor Michael Becker.
In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to your local animal shelter in Jack's memory.
