John Joseph Styx, age 66 of Ingleside, Illinois, passed away on December 8, 2021, at his home. He was born on January 21, 1955, in Waukegan, Illinois to Joseph and Jean (Young) Styx.
John loved hunting, fishing, building homes, and drinking coffee with his family. He possessed a larger than life personality as well as a zest for life that brought joy and fun, even in the small moments. He embodied unconditional love and respect for all. John spent time loving his grandchildren and sitting on the porch of the house he built himself with his beautiful wife of 44 years, having coffee talk.
John was generous with his time, never hesitating to come to the aid of anyone, be it a house repair or stopping for a stranger on the side of the road. A master craftsman, John could see the blueprint of a house in his mind, always steps ahead of those around him.
John is survived by his wife, Therese (Manahan) Styx; his children Joseph (Jami) Styx, Joshua Styx, Jonathan Styx, Jimmy Styx, Jessica Styx (Dan Kipp); grandchildren Jack, Gabe, Noah, Elijah, Ruby, Tanner, Jonathan, and Scarlette; brothers and sisters, and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his son, Jordan; his brother, Matthew, and his parents, Joseph and Jean Styx.
