John M. Duckart, 38, died Tuesday at Froedtert Hospital, Wauwatosa. He was born in Madison, WI, July 3, 1981, son of Robert and Margaret (Nee: Michaels) Duckart.

John was a graduate of Grafton High School “Class of 2000”. Furthering his education he graduated from MATC Madison with a Master Automotive Painting degree. On November 4, 2006 at St. Boniface Church in Germantown, he married the love of his life, Angela L. Stangel. John was most recently employed by Heiser Chevrolet, West Allis. An automotive enthusiast, John loved anything with an engine. He enjoyed airbrush painting, comic books, super heros, Legos, movies, hiking, and noise making. His humor, kindness and high energy was contagious. John’s true passion was his family and, above all, his children.

A Memorial Mass will be celebrated Saturday, 11:30 a.m. at St. Rita Catholic Church, 4339 Douglas Avenue, with Rev. Michael Petersen officiating. Relatives and friends may meet with the family Saturday at the church from 9:30 a.m. until time of Mass at 11:30 a.m. Private interment will be held. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family for a fund to be established for John’s children have been suggested.
