Obituary for Janos Istvan Szathmari

Janos Istvan Szathmari was born on October 9, 1943 and enjoyed 74 years of life. Husband of Vicktoria for 14 years and life partner to Connie for 31 years. Father of Janos T. and Stepfather of Ofelia. Grandfather of Janos, Olivia, Justin, Lillian, Steven, and Kevin. He is also survived by his extended family in Europe.

He came from a small town in Hungary and was the last of 9 siblings. The war broke up the family farm but could not break him. He went from being a slave, to becoming a soldier, a builder and finally defecting to America to start over with only the clothes on his back. He worked multiple jobs saving every penny to bring his family to America.

He was always building and inventing with a focus on the future. A man of great dreams and one who actually lived them.   As a strong willed man who would not be broken, and with strength that could not be matched. A man with a resourceful mind who loved to invent.  

He will truly be missed for his helping hands and his strong words that provided loving guidance.   His next journey has just begun.
