John C. Kaspar Jr. 42, of North Platte, passed away on October 5 ,2021. John was born January 21, 1979, in North Platte, Ne, to John (Jack) and Wanda Kaspar.John was a wonderful surprise born later in their lives, so he got to grow up with his nieces and nephews. He attended school at North Platte High School. He was a very good bowler, and he always valued the time that he spent and the friends that he made at the bowling alley. He was always a hard worker, even from a young age. One of his first jobs was mowing lawns. He started working for Lincoln County Department of Roads while still in high school. He later returned and worked there for the last 13 years. His strong work ethic, and providing for his family, were his highest priorities. On October 26, 2007, he married Laura Kramer. They dated less than 4 months, and decided to elope because they could not wait to start their life together. They were blessed with three children, Jay, Luke and Bella. His children meant more to him than anything else in the world. John’s faith was important to him, and their church home was the Berean Church. John volunteered on the Security Team for the Children’s Area, because he always wanted everyone’s children to be safe. John loved spending time with his family more than anything else. He loved taking them all fishing. He also loved his pets, several of them being kittens that he rescued himself. God blessed him with the ability to be able to fix just about anything, so he often worked on all kinds of projects around his home and others. He also enjoyed working with wood carving, wood burning, and other crafts. He loved doing these things with Laura and the kids. John will always be remembered for his friendliness and orneriness. He was an equal-opportunity teaser. He was always willing to lend a hand and help those who needed it. John fit so well into Laura’s family and made her family his own. Laura could not have asked for a more amazing husband and dad. His family is comforted by the fact that he is waiting in heaven for them to join someday.He leaves behind Laura, Jay, Luke and Bella; parents Jack (Barb) Kaspar; sister Sue (Ray) Isaac and their daughters Randie (Bill) Westman and Lindsey Isaac (Josh Hawley); sister Shelley (Bud) Parks and their son Joshua (Josie)Watts and daughter Stephanie (Shawn) Noyce; numerous great-nieces and nephews; father-in-law Bill (Penny) Kramer, mother-in-law Judy Kramer, sister-in-law Lisa Kramer; sister-in-law Julie (Wyatt) Smith; brother-in-law Paul (Kerri) Kramer, and numerous nieces and nephews.
