John Lange was born on October 28, 1963, to Daniel and Marian (Brinkman) Lange at St. Gabriel’s Hospital in Little Falls, MN. John lived life to the fullest. He grew up in Upsala, MN and later moved to Chicago, IL for many years. He was a hard worker. John worked construction on high rises, bridges, and commercial buildings for many years. He also drove truck and ran his own insulation business for many years. He was most proud of being a union carpenter. He was known to be a handyman; fixing or making something work was his passion. John was united into marriage to Sandra Peterson on August 1, 2015, at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Swanville, MN. In his free time, you could often find him working on wood projects, fishing, or hunting. The lake was his church. John loved plowing snow and having fun. He was always up for a good time and was known to tell stories. John was always willing to help anybody who needed his help. He was a good man but was a broken man that battled with many struggles and was no longer able to cope. John was greatly loved and will be dearly missed.
