John Vsetula

Obituary of John Joseph Vsetula

Please share a memory of John to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

With heartfelt sadness, we announce the passing of John Joseph Vsetula at CKHA on April 14th, 2024, at 85 years of age. John was born in Chatham, Ontario on May 14, 1938, where he lived and farmed in Chatham-Kent his entire life. John had a strong, Czechoslovakian work ethic and loved to farm, almost as much as he loved his family. He had a youthful disposition, passion for life, persevering strength and was one of the most calm, gentle and loving souls you could meet. Some of John’s favourite past times were listening to his favourite Czech songs and visiting his friends at “Timmies”. He will be dearly missed by many.

John will be reunited with his beloved Father, John Vsetula; Mother, Elizabeth (Lacek) Vsetula; wife, Helen Josephine (Cibulka) Vsetula; niece, Janay Vsetula and sister-in-law, Marie Holmes. 

John was the proud father of Janice Ann Vsetula, Janelle Louise (Vsetula) McAlorum and John Joseph Gerard Vsetula. Loving Grandfather of Courtney Alexa (McAlorum) Guerin (Joel Lee Guerin) and Connor James McAlorum (Rebecca Lynn VanDonkersgoed).

Dear brother of Bessie VanOirschot (Frank) and Chatles Vsetula (Joan).  Brother-in-law of Anne Kominek (Robert) and Georgina Oprsal (Jerry). Godfather and Uncle to Alan Van Oirschot (Margaret) and Glen Vsetula. Uncle to Charles Vsetula Jr. (Bonnie), Carrie Vsetula, Pam Lacek VanOirschot, Carol Campbell (Kim), David Holmes (Elaine), Diane Harwood (Rob), Kim Belanger (Greg), Kathy McMath (Brad), Jerry Oprsal and Jamie Oprsal.

A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.


"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."
