John Mindrup

June 16, 1962 — May 16, 2016

John Marion Mindrup, 53, died Monday (May 16, 2016) in Newton, Ks.

Recitation of the Holy Rosary will be Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. in the church gymnasium. The Mass of Christian Burial will be Thursday, May 26 at 11:00 a.m., both at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in New Almelo, Ks.

John was born June 16, 1962 in Norton County, and grew up on the farmstead of the Mindrup family. John attended grade and high school at New Almelo and Lenora. During his high school years, he participated in sports, especially enjoying football. John attended Goodland Vo Tech and worked in construction, custom harvesting, and manufacturing jobs.

John had a gentleness and goodness about him. He never had desire for luxuries and led a very simple lifestyle with little money; yet he would give away his last dollar to another in need. He continued to love to watch football through his life, and especially enjoyed the past two years’ run of KC Royals baseball. John also loved to follow the activities of his nieces and nephews.

John is survived by siblings Elizabeth Jansonius and her husband Phil and son Timothy of Prairie View, KS; Margaret Houtz and her husband Brett and children Katie and Josh of Ozawkie, Kansas; and Joseph Mindrup and his wife Meg and their children James, Annie, Matt and Joey of Hays, KS.

He was preceded in death by his parents Joe and Rachel and his sister Maureen.

We all mourn his passing and take solace in knowing that now he is at perfect peace and love in the arms of Our Lord Jesus, and reunited with his loving parents. John was a good man and his journey through life was difficult due to suffering from illness for many years.
