John G. Stefan Jr. of Waldron, Arkansas (formerly of Uniontown Pennsylvania) went to be with his Lord and Savior, Wednesday, August 11, 2021 in Waldron, Arkansas with his loving family by his side. John was born August 25, 1925 in Morgantown, West Virginia to John G. Stefan Sr. and Marilyn (Dawson) Stefan. He was 95 years old.

For many years, John was in sales and marketing for a dental laboratory. He worked for the same company for over 35 years. John was a member of Great Bethel Baptist Church in Uniontown, Pennsylvania for many years. He also served as a deacon. He was a member of the Rotary Club, Municipal Authority, and Lions Club (past President). He was a life member of AMVETs. While John stayed busy with his club memberships, his first love was that of being a husband to Betty. They were married in July of 1948 and lived their lives in Pennsylvania until relocating to Waldron a few years back to be close to family. John and Betty enjoyed being in Arkansas and especially getting to be close with great nieces and great nephews and beyond.

John leaves behind to cherish his memory, his loving and devoted wife Betty of Waldron, Arkansas, niece, Kathy Cabe of Waldron, Arkansas, great-niece Jennifer Shaddon and husband Gary of Y-City, Arkansas, great-nephew Jeffrey Cabe and wife Angel of Waldron, Arkansas, and his great-nieces Vanessa Lamproe and husband Jim of Rudy, Arkansas, Katelynn Medlin and husband Taylor of Waldron, Arkansas, great great nephew James Shaddon and wife Kristan of Alma, Arkansas and great great greats Brylynn and Eli Lamproe and Taylynn Medlin. John will be missed by all that knew him and the many whose lives he impacted.

A private family service will be held at a later date.
