John Menard entered into rest on March 03, 2018 surrounded by love and family. He was born in Whidbey Island, Washington, but resided in Sacramento, California from a young age. He is survived by his son, Shawn Patrick Menard, daughter-in-law, Jennifer Menard, grandchildren, Alexandria Menard, Braden Menard, and Alyssa Menard. He was one of five children: Mary (Angie) Stevenson, Kathy Navarrete, Wayne (Joe) Menard, and Elaine Newbold. John is also survived by many family members, including uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his father, Wayne Kenneth Menard, and his mother, Monica Irene Menard. He came from a close knit family, growing up with a brother, sisters, and cousins. His family meant the world to him. When his mother fell ill, in spite of his own poor health, he stepped in to help care for her during a most difficult time of her life. As happens in some families, we sometimes grow apart from those we love. It was during the time caring for his mom, he was able to rekindle many relationships. John was a loving person who expressed great gratitude for every hand lent. He was also a people person who loved to talk and socialize. He thoroughly enjoyed getting together and spending time with family for special occasions during the latter years of his life. He was loved and will be missed by many.

The last time I seen Johnny was at the hospital in the waiting room and we were talking about old times and we were laughing so hard about a story of my Moms neighbor that we were in tears. It was such a good talk and visit as the reason we were there for was not so happy but it was a talk that left the reason we were there a little less sad for awhile. Johnny was getting that terrible flu going around and when Angie came she said he should be at home. Being the older sister looking out for her siblings as usual he listened to her and left. He hugged me and said he couldn't wait until we got to talk again and said that he hadn't laughed like that in a long time and I was so funny. We hadnt seen each other in years and just remembering and telling each other about our lives since then. So sad to say but that was the last time I seen him. You will be so missed Johnny and way to young to go. You will now be with your Mother and father a good thing but you will be so missed by all you left behind. God bless you Connie
