Ahlberg, John John Arthur Ahlberg Sr. passed away at home on Monday, December 14, 2020 surrounded by family shortly after his 90th birthday. He was born on December 11, 1930 to Edmund and Esther (Reed) Ahlberg and grew up in Plainwell, Michigan. John served in the United States Army and fought in Korea. Upon returning home from the service he met and married the love of his life Marilyn Fletcher. They had three children John Jr., Cindy and Jim. In 1967 they moved the family to Madison, WI. He worked for Rowley & Schlimgen before starting his own business of Ahlberg's Office Equipment. In 1979 John, Marilyn and Jim moved back to Plainwell where he continued his business there. They enjoyed their time bowling and golfing (which they both got a Hole-In-One) and being with their many friends. After retirement they purchased a lot at Sandy Pines where they spent their summers on the lake fishing in their Bass boat and the winters in Panama City Beach, Florida. John loved his sports, teaching his grandsons how to golf and fish and he spent many hours playing Cribbage with friends and neighbors. After Marilyn passed away in 1997 John sold his place at Sandy Pines and moved back to Plainwell where he lived until 2014 when he moved in with his daughter and son-in-law in Wisconsin. John is survived by his children, John Jr. (Peggy) Pensacola, FL, Cindy (Jeff) Schluter Plain, WI, Jim (Gina) Panama City Beach, FL; eight grandchildren, Chase (Rachael) Ahlberg, Kendall (Chris) Schrader, Fletcher Ahlberg, Josh (Bethany) Schluter, Joe (Kelsey) Schluter, Jacob Schluter, Julia Ahlberg, Hardy Angeloff; five great granddaughters Cameron and Charlotte Ahlberg, Jemma, Arwen and Addison Schluter; brother-in-law, James Fletcher; sisters-in-law, Betty Ahlberg, Irene Fletcher and Jackie Fletcher; many nieces and nephews who enjoyed spending time with him. He was preceded in death by his wife Marilyn; his parents, his in-laws, James and Nina Fletcher; four brothers, Bob, Ed, Don, Bill; two sisters, Ethel, Helen; brothers-in-law Bob, Dick, and Bill Fletcher. John was a very special man who was loved by all who knew him. He will be greatly missed.
