Tribute & Message From The Family

John J. Wsol, Jr., age 83 of McHenry, passed away Monday, August 2, 2021, in his home. John was born July 21, 1938 in Chicago, the son of John and Isabel (Konecki) Wsol. He was married to MaryLou (Monaco) on October 2, 1965 until her passing in 2010.

John had a multifaceted career beginning in pharmaceutical sales and including work in the financial services industry where he met some of his dearest friends. John enjoyed sharing knowledge and helped to educate many people throughout the midwest while working for the EPA. He also enjoyed traveling, reading, rooting for the Packers and Blackhawks and virtual exploration of Scotland via single malt scotches.

John's grandchildren Melina, Sara, Mara and Ben were a very important part of his life and dear to his heart. He thoroughly enjoyed every moment with them.

He is survived by his sons, Jon (Anca), Marc (Maria), and his companion Phyllis Bauer.

In following with John's wishes, a memorial service will be held on Friday August 6th at 10am at Holy Apostles Church in McHenry. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a memorial contribution to the Stein Learning Gardens at Saint Sabina (

Condolence & Memory Journal

Having worked with John at the EPA for 20 or so years together, I am sad to hear that he has passed. I appreciate the advice he gave me along the way, and the hearty hello when we crossed paths in the office. I wish peace, love and healing for the family and all those whose lives John touched.
