John Neuenfelt

August 7, 1953 — November 10, 2021


John H. “Jack” Neuenfelt was born to Harold and Ruth Neuenfelt of Lewiston on August 7, 1953. He joined his four older sisters; Lila, Linda, Jenny and Punky at home. Jack graduated from Johannesburg-Lewiston High School in 1971 and then attended Northwestern Michigan College in Traverse City. In 1972 Jack met the love of his life, Bonnie and they were married in 1973. Jack was very involved in his community and was a trustee for Albert Township. He also spent many years volunteering as an EMT and fireman for the Albert Township Fire Department.

Jack and Bonnie were blessed with three children, Nicole (Allan) Myers; Becky (Luke) Townsend; and John (Nikki) Neuenfelt. Jack was preceded in death by his parents, in-laws, Gary (Barbara) Courterier and his daughter, Nicole. Jack enjoyed spending time with his family, his many brother and sister-in-laws, and nieces and nephews. You could usually find the Neuenfelt family camping on weekends while Jack was playing in softball tournaments with his brother-in-law, Dwight. Jack and his team, R&H Sports, enjoyed years of success on the softball field along with a state championship. As their children grew older Jack transitioned from player to coach. He spent many years volunteering as president of the JL Little League program. He enjoyed coaching his daughters and spent right years as the assistant varsity coach for the JL Lady Cards softball team. In recent years, Jack's favorite thing in the world was to watch his nine grandkids; Sydney, Kiela, Sophia, Sage, Aubrey, Sylvia, Jackson, Kenzie and Parker in whatever activity they were doing. From sports to OM, Papa Jack wouldn't miss supporting his grandkids. His grandkids will forever hold trips to the Key West Aquarium as favorite memories or fishing off Papa's dock. Jack's spirit of giving, whether it was his time, love, advice or belongings will forever be his legacy.

Jack passed away peacefully on November 10, 2021 at the University of Michigan Medical Center. A memorial will be held in celebration of his life on Friday, November 19, 2021 at the Johannesburg Christian Church at 11:00 AM with visitation from 10:00 AM until time of service.
