John M. Fewkes, 53, of Glenmoore, passed away suddenly on Sunday, June 14, 2020 at his home. He was the beloved husband of Heather M. Fewkes, with whom he shared 8 years of marriage.
John was born in Camden, NJ, he was the son of Eleanor Vail and the late William R. Snider. John was preceded in death by his grandparents, Neil and Emily Vail, and also his cousin Kyle Vail.
John’s greatest joy in life was being an amazing husband and father to “his girls”. Above all, John
cherished moments with his daughter, teaching her how to play sports, swimming, trips to the beach and overall just having fun in the sun. John was an enormous E-A-G-L-E-S fan and loved watching and playing many different sports, especially Softball. His Softball buddies were his second family, and he often talked about the guys, past tournaments, and many very fond memories of that time in his life.
John had a passion for cooking and spent the later part of his career doing so. He most recently worked for Montesano Brothers and truly loved working there. He was modest, but always impressed others when showcasing his culinary skills in cook offs, and for friends and family at gatherings. He couldn’t believe that he had finally won 1st place at the Tosco’s Pub and Grill chili cook off this past year, after many years of trying! John was adored by many and was always the life of the party. John was never without a witty sarcastic remark, but he had a huge heart and would do anything for anyone. He valued quality time spent with family and friends. John often said that he wasn’t social, but he made friends wherever he went and surely left a lasting impression on people.
In addition to his wife and mother, John is survived by his daughter, Emersyn Fewkes; a son, Ryan Kurtz; his sisters, Joy Nace (Brent), and Barbara Lascik (John); and by his brothers, Frank Fewkes (Birgit) and Joe Snider (Cindy). In addition, John is survived by his beloved aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces, as well as great nephews and nieces.
Services will be held privately with the family.
