John M. Siwula was born to eternal life on November 19, 2021 at the age of 63. John was son of the late John and Audrey Siwula. He is survived by his wife, Maureen (nee Gates), and his three sons, Patrick (Chelsey), Thomas (Ellen), and James. He is also survived by his three sisters, Cindy, Sue, and Mary, and dozens of nieces and nephews.
John met his best friend Maureen at Bradley University and together they built a loving family and more than 40 years of unforgettable memories. John was at his happiest when listening to classic rock, tinkering with an engine, or enjoying the captain’s chair on his boat in Pine Lake, Wisconsin. Most of all, John loved spending time with his family.
John was an accomplished geotechnical engineer, licensed in 17 states. He graduated as valedictorian in his master’s degree program at Northwestern University. His work has shaped projects including the Marquette Interchange and Hurricane Katrina levy response, among others. John’s heart for service led him to a rewarding volunteer role designing and building infrastructure near Joyabaj, Guatemala with Engineers Without Borders.
John will be honored on Saturday, November 27, 2021 at Holy Apostles Catholic Church, 16000 West National Avenue, New Berlin, Wisconsin 53151. Visitation will be from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:00 AM.
