Age 31, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, January 28, 2018. John was born in Kalamazoo on January 25, 1987; the son of Mark J. and Marilyn R. (Crowe) Toepper and was baptized at St. Martin of Tours Catholic Church. John was an avid outdoorsman and a loyal University of Michigan fan. He was a 2005 graduate of Vicksburg High School and later graduated from Ross Medical Education as a registered medical assistant. He was most recently employed for PNC Bank. John was a devoted and loving father to his daughter, Elizabeth Toepper. He is also survived by his mother, Marilyn Crowe; sisters, Jamie (Don Wagner) Toepper, Carol (Brian) Karr and Trista Edwards; two nieces; a nephew; aunts, Sue (Bill) Shields, Jan (Joe) Haase, Shari (Craig) Crawford and Nancy (Don) Thompson and several cousins. He was preceded in death by his father, Mark J. Toepper and grandparents, Miles and Barbara Crowe and John and Marieta Toepper. John walked this earth far too short a time and still left a lasting legacy through the light and love he shared with family and friends. John had a gift for meaningful conversations. He felt deeply and shared those feelings in his words and deeds. The family will never know how many lives he has touched in a positive way but would like to thank those who sustained him in love.
