Enyart, John Charles John left our lives all too suddenly on September 8th at the age of 71, passing peacefully with family and friends nearby. John was born in Robbinsdale, lived in New Ulm and graduated from Burnsville High School in 1969 and the University of Minnesota in 1976 with a degree in Business Administration. John worked as the Business Manager at Hearth and Home. After 20 years his interest turned to computers and he spent his second career working in network administration at Siemens, Blackbox and ultimately for the City of Orono. In retirement, John felt the need to give back and began volunteering at the VA Hospital and then for many years at the ICA Food Shelf in Minnetonka. He loved the outdoors and Minnesota winters. He loved to camp, and his camping experiences evolved over the years from car camping, to backpacking, and then his ultimate love, kayak camping which spawned an interest in building wooden kayaks. Over the years he built a fleet of them, mostly to keep for lending to anyone interested in joining him for a paddle. The winter seasons were filled with cross-country skiing, winter camping and snowshoeing. John was first and foremost a devoted and caring husband to his wife Ann of almost 50 years. Family was a very important to John and a big part of his life. Having no children of their own, he and Ann "adopted" their nieces, nephews, and godchildren as their own, giving them many happy memories from the love, attention and support showed them as they were growing up and into their adult lives. John was preceded in death by his mother Charlene Ingman Enyart, brother Robert "Bud" Enyart and father John Calmer Enyart. He is survived by his wife Ann (Pierro) Enyart, sister Barbara Stodola; brother David (Linda) Enyart; Aunt Marilyn Ingman, numerous nieces, nephews, family and friends. A Celebration of Life will be held at a date to be set. Donations in John's memory can be made to the ICA Food Shelf in Minnetonka.
