Obituary of John A. Remaize, Jr.

John passed away peacefully on April 20, 2023 at the age of 80 with his wife by his side. He was born in December, 1942 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to John and Amelia Remaize. John graduated from Pennsylvania Military College (first civilian class) with a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering. He met Faith at his first job at the US Gypsum Company in Oakfield, New York. They were married at St. Cecilia Catholic Church in Oakfield in April, 1966. Over the years, John’s career took their family to live in Maryland, Ohio, Connecticut, and Washington. He retired as a Production Manager at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in 2002. As a dedicated husband, father and grandfather, he was committed to lend a helping hand whenever it was needed: painting, building decks, demolishing kitchens and so much more. He cherished time with his family, especially sneaking out with the grandkids for ice cream. John was a runner, and eventually became an avid walker, taking multiple walks a day until he was 75 years old. He enjoyed watching sports, especially football, and he liked to do large jigsaw puzzles. Together with Faith, he was an active volunteer supporting their communities in various ways. They enjoyed spending time in Reno, Nevada and ultimately spent their retirement years there. For the last few years, they have lived in Oregon to be closer to family. He is survived by his wife Faith, and his daughters Sandy (Gregg) Loprete, Susie (Tony) Salazar, and Sharon Remaize, and his grandchildren Anna and Matt Loprete, and Devon, Hannah, and Alex Salazar. He is also survived by his loving sister Delores (Dee) Okrenuk and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, his sister Amelia (Mazie) and her husband Joseph Webb, and his brother Tom and his wife Mary Ellen (Mimi) Remaize. Mass will be held on May 12 at 10am at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Aloha, Oregon followed by a lakeside final commendation and scattering of ashes at Valley Memorial Park in Hillsboro, Oregon.
