Jon R. Londre, 53, died on Friday, May 1, 2020, at Ascension All Saints Medical Center. Jon was born in Schwabach, Germany near Nuremberg, Germany on March 14, 1967. Jon’s father, Richard, was stationed in Germany serving in the U.S. Army when Jon was born. At the time, his four-year-old brother Mike was very upset because he thought when Jon started talking, he would only be able to speak German!

Jon graduated from Washington Park High School “Class of 1985”. On August 28, 2005, Jon married Carol A. Christian. Jon met Carol while they worked together at the Docks Waterfront Restaurant, and from there they started their own catering business. An excellent chef, Jon, and Carol were the club caterers at Harbor Lite Yacht Club for 14 years. He had previously been employed as the managing chef at the National Deaf Academy in Florida. Jon was a huge football fan, especially for the Green Bay Packers. In his younger years, Jon was quite an athlete. He was a West Racine guy who kept many of his friends throughout his entire life. They all appreciated his wild and crazy sense of humor. He really enjoyed telling a good joke. The family really appreciated the times that Jon would prepare meals for them, especially at the holidays. Those meals were the best, and Jon wasn’t shy about letting the family know it.

Jon will be dearly missed by his wife, Carol; children, Adrienne Ennis, Dane Londre; grandchildren; siblings, Jeff Londre (fiancée, Naomi), Mike (Debbie) Muleski, Karen Muleski, Jenny (Ricky) Koerber, Christopher Horvath; step-father, Bill (Judy) Horvath; mother-in-law, Leola Christian; brother-in-law, Thomas Urdiales; sister-in-law, Susan (Gary) Wemmert; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Jon was preceded in death by his mother, Mae Anne Horvath, father, Richard Londre, father-in-law, Darvin Christian, and sister-in-law, Bonnie Urdiales.

“As we think back over the years, we remember that Jon loved life, loved his family and his friends. but he especially loved his wife Carol. She was his rock..”

A celebration of Jon’s life with his family and friends at a later date.

Please send condolences to Maresh-Meredith & Acklam Funeral Home.
