John William Berkheiser, age 70, of Charlotte, MI formerly of Nashville, NC passed away peacefully on October 13, 2021 at his Michigan home surrounded by family.

John was born May 14, 1951 in South Bend, Indiana to the late John and Beverly (Butler) Berkheiser. He resided in the Nashville, NC area for over 30 years before moving back to Michigan to reside with his eldest son and daughter-in-law.  Most of his working life John was a truck driver and was passionate about driving across the country and enjoying the freedom of the open road. No matter where he went while traveling, he never met a stranger. He also loved woodworking and had a high skill level at it.  John never turned his back on someone in need and would do whatever it took to help them out. Most of all he loved spending time with his family and closest friends.

John is survived by his sons John L. (Vicky), and James A. (Valerie), grandchildren: Hannah, Carrington, Ashley (Teddy), Zachary and great granddaughter, Aspen. His siblings Mike (Cruz), Mary, Sue (Mike), Debbie, and Jim as well as many nieces and nephews.
