Hunting 05

John Roudebush

November 18, 1976 ~ July 21, 2022 (age 45) 45 Years Old


John never had a loss for words, and was always willing to share a story or two.  He would only be a call away if anyone needed anything and would give the shirt off his back to a stranger. On July 21, 2022, surrounded by his family, John D. Roudebush, of Okeana lost his battle to cancer after a long and courageous fight. 

John was born in Hamilton, Ohio on Nov. 18, 1976, to John Jr. and Eva Roudebush. John grew up on a farm where he developed a passion for bailing hay and driving tractors. He could often be found working side by side with his dad. After graduating, John eventually met his wife after a chance encounter and a little persistence.  He married Angel Bruns on September 9, 2006 and they welcomed Briley, Hailey, Emiley & Wyatt into their lives.  John was an amazing dad and active in his children's lives. He enjoyed watching his children in their sports endeavors and could often be found coaching on the sidelines. The time spent with his children at sporting events, tractor pulls, 4-H, in the woods hunting, and especially riding RZRs with his family and friends were moments he lived for. After watching his yearly fireworks, 4th of July fireworks will always remind his family and friends of his joy of putting together his display. 

John's legacy will live on with his loving wife: Angel (nee Bruns) Roudebush;  beloved children: Briley (fiancé' Nathan Reynolds), Hailey, Emiley, & Wyatt Roudebush & Kelly (Jacob) Burns.  Grandchildren: Elijah Coffey & another on the way; parents: John and Eva Roudebush; siblings:  Anjie (Kerry) McNeal; and many other aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. 
Visitation will be held on Monday, July 25th from 11-1 pm, with a Celebration of life starting at 1 PM at Brater Winter Funeral Home, 201 S. Vine St. Harrison, Ohio 45030. Burial to follow at New London Cemetery.
