John Joseph Mikulski
John Joseph Mikulski passed away on March 19, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born in 1953 in Danville, Illinois.
He proudly served eight years in the U.S Army, over 30 years as a Baptist missionary in Nome, Alaska and was a longterm employee of the Nome Public Schools.
He was a self-taught gunsmith, avid photographer and loved his congregation at the Bible Baptist Church as if they were his own family.
He is survived by his beloved wife Pearl; his son John Michael and his wife Amy; his daughter Jennifer and her husband Nathan Neuschwander; his five grandchildren Joy, Christopher, Julian, Kallista and John Logan; his three sisters Catherine Mikulski, Joanne Salazar and Mary Farley; his brother Edward Mikulski; and many other family members, in-laws and dear friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents John and Elizabeth Mikulski, his older brother Michael Mikulski and most recently his dear friend Dennis Harvey, Sr.
He and his family appreciate all the help given during his illness. Services will be held at 6 p.m. on April 7 at Old St. Joe’s in Nome, Alaska and at 6 p.m. on August 18 at Sauk Trail Baptist Temple in Richton Park, IL.
