His wife and their 3 children survive him.

Daughter Reanna Reid-Lobatto (Miles) of Madison.
Bye, Dad. I love you.
When I think of you, I think of how quiet you were until you laughed.
How you decorated my birthday cakes with favorite characters from Miss Piggy to Sonic The Hedgehog.
How your book collection introduced me to Isaac Asimov.
How you pulled our old camper to family reunions in the big old gold van with shag carpet.
How I inherited my love of thrift shops and garage sales from you.

Daughter Jenna Walton (Nick) of Fort Atkinson.
Many will remember him as quiet, but his love for us spoke loudly. I am thankful for the bond I shared with him and all the ways he made me who I am today.
I will miss his warmth and laugh.

Son Jon Jr. (Payton Knuth) of Altoona.
My only regret is that I'll never get to tell him how effectual he was in making me the man I am today.

Jon is also survived by aunts, numerous cousins who were more like siblings to him, brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews.
