John R. Ertle Jr - Rochester, NY - Rochester Cremation
Rochester, NY: Passed away suddenly on April 18th 2020 at age 67 after a year of various illnesses.  John is predeceased by his precious wife Cynthia Ertle, the only woman he ever loved, and brother Thomas Ertle.  He is survived by his mother Lorna Kenyon, sons Alan (Rachel) and Matthew, grandson Austin Sillick, brother William (Alana), sister Debbie Ray (John), nieces Ashley Tichacek (Matt) and Katie, and great-nephew Liam.
John spent over 25 years at Kodak never once missing a day. He loved his family more than anything in the world and would do anything for them.  He also was an avid hunter who would be up at 3:00am to be outside and ready by 4:00am.  He was a huge Star Trek fan, once stating he had seen every single episode ever made.  He also enjoyed Westerns, especially those with John Wayne and Clint Eastwood.  He was also a big fan of the Three Stooges and Mystery Science Theater 3000 and a big fan of the Buffalo Bills.
A public Celebration of Life will tentatively be held in late May or early June at 16 Avacado Ln, Rochester, NY 14606 following a private memorial service the same day.

    The passing of your dad is a tough thing to accept. He was a person always out there, ready to listen to what you have to say, to what you are feeling and to how you see your life. You will miss that sounding board. But it’s a transition we all have to deal with if we are lucky enough to reach adulthood before they move on. May God rest his soul. Life is not ended, only changed.

    John was a good friend at Kodak. He was quick with a laugh or a joke and was so much fun to be around. He knew how to listen without judgement and was an all around kind soul. Rest easy my friend. Love to the family and prayers for his passing.
