John Lee Easterday Obituary

John Lee Easterday, age 83, of  Dover, Ohio, and a former Dellroy area resident, died early Wednesday morning, April 5, 2023 in the Aultman Hospital at Canton.

He was born April 1, 1940 in Canton, Ohio and was the son of  the late John W. and Florence Rebecca (Beckley) Easterday.  In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by  a daughter, Kathie Warner, a brother, Robert Easterday, a sister and brother-in-law, Sandra Kay and Charles Flanagan, and a great-granddaughter, Kylee Warner.

John was a 1958 graduate of Carrollton High School and a longtime member of the Dellroy Church of the Nazarene. He, along with his wife Pat, were former owners and operators of the former   P & J Market and the Dellroy Laundromat in Dellroy, and the Atwood Dari-Bar near Atwood Lake.  He was also formerly employed at the U.S. Ceramic Tile Company at East Sparta and was a tool-and-die maker for the former Hercules Engine Factory in Canton. In his leisure time, he enjoyed fishing on Atwood Lake and was fond of woodworking. John engaged his family and friends by playing cards and telling jokes. Playing the piano and the accordion were also among his talents.  But primarily, John was mostly interested in the welfare of his family and found his joy in spending time with them. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and brother who will be missed by his family and many friends. 

He is survived by his wife,  Patricia Ann (Moreland)  Easterday, whom he married January 23, 1958, his four children Steve (Deb) Easterday of Strasburg, OH, Randy (Dolly) Easterday and Mrs.Valerie (Rodney) Yost, both of Carrollton, OH, and Tracy (JoAnn) Easterday of Wadsworth, OH,  a son-in-law, Jeff Warner of Bowerston, OH, a brother, Richard "Dick" (Barbara) Easterday of Apache Junction, AZ, a sister,  Mrs. Jean (Tom) Welch of Surprise, AZ, and 13 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren.
