John MacFarlane Engle

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of John Engle, who died in his home on January 4, 2020.

Born September 5, 1924, in Brooklyn, New York City of parents Minnie and Patrick Engle, with brothers Bill, Norman, and Patrick, John was a World War II veteran, and saw combat in Italy as a member of the 10th Mountain Division, for which service he received a Purple Heart and Bronze Star.

John graduated from Carnegie-Mellon University on the GI Bill, and he spent his career working in the publishing industry, doing much print work in the ski industry. He was a resident of Lake Barrington for over 40 years.

He is survived by his loving wife of 69 years, Loretta H. Engle, his daughters Jane Engle Roberti, Ellen M. Novy, and grandchildren Alex and Claire Roberti, and Kathryn, Scott, Kelly, and Jennifer Novy.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, January 18 at Kisselburg-Wauconda Funeral Home, 235 N. Main St., Wauconda. Visitation will begin at 9 am with service starting at 11 am, followed by interment with military honors at White Memorial Cemetery in Barrington.
