John Daniel Nowicki

December 19, 1955 — April 9, 2019

John Daniel Nowicki, age 63, died unexpectedly from natural causes on Tuesday, April 9, 2019. John was born December 19, 1955, in Toledo, to parents Daniel and Raphael (Bandurski) Nowicki. He was a graduate of St. Anthony’s School, Central Catholic High School, and The Ohio State University, where he skied and played Lacrosse.

John grew up breeding German Shorthair Pointers, he was known as the dog whisperer. An avid alpine skier and fisherman, he loved getting his children on skis as soon as they were walking and enjoying many long days on the fishing boat with his brothers-in-law. John was an active member of the IBEW Local 8 Electricians for many years and truly loved working with his hands. John enjoyed a wide circle of friends who would all agree he was a friend you were always glad to see and glad to know. Embracing his heritage, he was an excellent bowler and danced a mean polka.

John was a loving husband and proud father of four children. He will be remembered by his wife, Paula (Lepkowski); children, Becky, Kevin, John Patrick, and Steven, and brothers, Dale (Beth), Dennis (Jan) along with in-laws, Frank (Roxanne), Dan (Beth), Phil (Sandy), Valerie, and numerous nieces and nephews. Also mourning his death are sister and brothers from another mother, Jackie, Rick (Mary Lynn), and Randy (Jane) Pozniak.
