John Lawrence Jaros, age 69, of Maryville, IL, formerly of Granite City, IL, passed away on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 at Anderson Hospital, Maryville, IL. John was born on December 14, 1947 in Granite City, IL, a son of the late John J. Jaros and Audrey (Epping) Jaros.

On April 19, 1969, John married Kathy Sparks, the love of his life, in Granite City, IL. He had retired after thirty plus years from Basler Electric in Highland, IL, as a senior systems analyst. John enjoyed golfing with his friends, but his true passion was deer hunting. His greatest joy was spending time with his family. John loved life, he loved to laugh, but most of all he loved his family. He will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.

John is survived by his devoted wife, Kathy Jaros of Maryville, IL; loving sons, John Jaros of Godfrey, IL and Mike Jaros of Holiday Shores, IL; dear sister and brother-in-law, Peggy and Reginald Jun of Rancho Mirage, CA; proud grandfather to Audrey Jaros and Grant Jaros; extended family and many wonderful friends.
