John J. Vassak, Jr., of Stone Store Road, died peacefully at home on Saturday, August 26, 2023 in the loving care of family and friends.
John was born 82 years ago on January 9, 1941 in the Town of Kent, NY to Lulu (Ingersoll) and John J. Vassak, Sr. John loved telling stories of his days as a truck driver. He drove for many different companies through the years, including Local # 456 in Elmsford, earning the respect and friendship of many.
John enjoyed playing his scratch-off tickets, walks along the creek in search of fossils and keeping his country home on the hillside perfectly manicured. John was also passionate about rainbows and stopped to see every one that appeared wherever he traveled.
Loving him forever are his wife: Donna (Sprague) Vassak of Livingstonville, whom he married on August 26, 2000; his daughters: Kelly Nelson of Dover Plains, Bonnie Vassak of Hartwick, Debbie (Tom) Wheeler of Wingdale; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and his step-children: Melissa Heller of Livingstonville, Bobby Heller and Billy Heller, both of Wingdale.
Honoring John's wishes, a private graveside service was held in Livingstonville Cemetery.
Coltrain Funeral Home, LLC of Middleburgh is honored to be caring for John and his family.
