John Thaddeus Brennan IV
John Thaddeus Brennan IV, 57, of Onalaska, passed away as a result of a heart attack on June 23, 2019. John was born in Madison to John T. Brennan III and Patricia Yackley on February 20, 1962. He married his best friend, Mary Becker, on October 4, 1986 in La Crosse.
John was a friendly man who could talk to anyone he just met like they had been friends for years. He enjoyed being the life of the party and giving everyone memories, they would never forget. He was a passionate golfer who believed if it wasn’t 18 holes, it wasn’t a true round of golf. He loved playing on all the courses in the area but his favorite by far was Drugans.
He was a man who bled green and gold as the Green Bay Packers were his favorite football team. He was happy to have witnessed their four Super Bowl wins. One of his favorite traditions was when he got to light the Santa head to kick-off the Christmas Season.
He loved his family with all his heart and they will forever miss his endless conversations.
He worked as an ultrasound technician until his retirement from the Tomah VA hospital in 2018.
John is survived by his wife, Mary; son, John T. (Amanda) Brennan V; daughter, Sara Brennan; parents, John T. (Gwen) Brennan III, Patricia (Karl) Prikry; step-mom, Judy Brennan; sisters, Joan McLaughlin, Jennifer Brennan and Giorgia Brennan; brother Jeff Brennan (special friend Emmy); and extended family and friends.
John was a loving husband, father, brother, uncle and friend.
John was preceded in death by his grandparents and his wife’s parents.
A special thank you to Gundersen Health System for their loving care and support and Coulee Region Cremation Group.
