It is with a very heavy heart that we share the news of the unexpected passing of John Daniel Neitenbach. John was a wonderful father to his beautiful daughters Mia Marie (10) and Layla Lynn (4). He loved taking them 4-wheeling, snowboarding, bike riding and just spending quality time with them. John was an excellent diesel mechanic and enjoyed working on trucks. Rebuilding engines was almost therapeutic for him. He was also a very talented artist and his passion for that led him into the art of tattooing . We know many of his friends and family have his personal artwork that they will always carry with them. John had a very big heart and an infectious laugh that made the whole room light up. He will be loved and missed by all the lives he has touched.
John is survived by his Mother Christy Herrmann, Father Jayme “Jake” Neitenbach, Daughter’s Mia and Layla Neitenbach, Brother Jason “Jay” Neitenbach, Sister Jennifer “Jenny” Hanchey, Step- Sisters Rachel Skufitus, Heather McDonald and The mother of his Children Janie Neitenbach (Dodds) .

Growing up and even through now— John had a way of touching the hearts of absolutely everyone around. Quaint and observant, he knew how to make others feel loved at the exact necessary moment. To have him as a cousin was an honor and I will greatly miss his quick wit, as well as his optimism. I pray that others remain open and understanding to just how difficult and nearly impossible the fight against addiction is— unfortunately, he went too soon. God called him home though, and his timing is unmatched. My heart goes out to my best friend and cousin Jennifer, his former spouse Janie, their daughters Mia and Layla, as well as his brother Jason. Family and friends as well.

John I love you with all my heart and I will raise a beer of Heineken and a game of Super Mario Kart to you any day. Till we meet again my friend.

So many great memories with Bach. One of my first memories after moving to Olmsted Falls was him coming over with Travis and John L. to challenge my friends and I in a paintball match behind my mothers house. John was one of the first friends I had in Olmsted Falls. Many other fond memories as well, but that one stands out. He will be greatly missed. My condolences to those close to him.
