John Heisler Obituary

HEISLER, John David, formerly of Columbus, Ohio, departed this world for Heaven on the evening of Sunday, January 7, 2024. John was born March 30, 1946 in Fairmont, West Virginia, spending his childhood in the town of Lafferty, Ohio, where he attended St. Mary's elementary school; he continued his education, first graduating Union Local High School of Morristown, then later attending The Ohio State University, Franklin University, and the American Institute of Banking. He made his mark as a hard-working and reliable employee of the Ohio National Bank before embarking on his career with Dun & Bradstreet. He subsequently went on to assume a position of great responsibility with the Harry Wellnitz Company. In 1987, he founded the first of his own businesses, The Glass Block Warehouse, guiding it to success as president for nearly forty years.

An award-winning salesman and diligent administrator, John is remembered by his family for the many hours of hard work he put into his career and his companies, endeavoring all his life to provide for those around him. Most of all his family thanks him for the sympathy and compassion he showed in trying to help them with any problem they brought to him; he constantly gave thought to their wellbeing, working to secure their futures not only by his hard work but also through the guidance he offered them. Those who knew John in life will recall that, no matter what, he maintained a sense of humor -- always telling jokes and anecdotes, John possessed a gift for bringing levity and perspective to all with whom he interacted. In what time he had to spend by himself and with his wife, he enjoyed watching the sitcoms of his younger years on television. John was a lifelong Roman Catholic, a faithful Christian, and parishioner of St. Mary Magdalene in the Diocese of Columbus. 

John was preceded by his parents, Leo & Elizabeth Heisler; brother Jim Heisler; and his grandfather, Emanuel Keuser, whose relationship to the deceased gave him many fond memories. He is survived by his beloved wife to whom he was ever devoted, Carol Ann Heisler, née Burchett; son, John D. Heisler, Jr.; and his nine grandchildren he loved nothing more than to spend his time with, John, Eric, Martique, Marika, William, Benjamin, Nathaniel, Anthony, and Richard, who remember him specially for his love, compassion, and guidance, and for whom he made no end of effort to bring a happy childhood as his own grandfather had done for him. John is also survived by his brother, Joseph (Judy) Heisler; sister, Elizabeth Martin; sisters in law, Lois Carroll and Gerry Burchett and many other relatives by blood and by relation he regarded warmly as family.
