John Alexander Kuhn, 59, of Valparaiso, Indiana passed away suddenly on Sunday, November 19, 2023. He was born May 4, 1964, in Chicago, Illinois to Robert & Joan (Simon) Kuhn, graduated from St. Joseph’s High School in Westchester, Illinois, and served proudly for 8 years with the U.S. Army.  John made his career driving long-haul routes throughout America keeping our industries supplied with all of their logistical needs.  He loved nothing more than throwing a fishing line in the water whenever he could get the chance.  However, true fish stories were created at Hayward, Wisconsin and on Lake Geneva.
Survivors include his children; Krystle Kuhn of Harvard, Illinois, Tiffany Epley, Tomas Delapaz, Jessenia Mercado, Dustin Witt, Angel Delapaz & Faith Taylor, fiancé, Lisa Taylor of Valparaiso, siblings; Maria E. J.

Ever since I met John in HS freshman year, he truly became my best friend. We could go years without seeing each other and it would be like we haven't missed a day.

I can still remember the first day that I came to the Kuhn household, which would be my new family. While mom and dad were talking about the business of me becoming a Kuhn, in came John and Tom; John said "would you like to play with us?" and off into the family room we went. It would be the beginning of a terrific relationship with my brother. I miss you, bro. -Maria E. J. Kuhn
