JOHN L. ALT age 86, beloved husband for 60 years of Arlene (nee Sopp); loving father of Jacqueline Alt (Richard), Gregory Alt (Tracy), Amy Alt-Kellner (Dimitri), and David Alt (Lina); devoted grandfather of Colin (Vicki), Liam, Devin, Ryan, Alivia, and Grace; dearest brother-in-law of  Sandra Figler; dear uncle and great-uncle of many. U.S. Army Veteran.

John was born on June 1, 1932 in Philadelphia, PA and passed away on February 7, 2019 in Cleveland, where he was an area resident for over 60 years. On August 23, 1958 John married the love of his life at St. Paschal Baylon Catholic Church, and the two of them were members of St. Clare Church for 50 years. A Korean War Veteran, John proudly served in the United States Army. After his service in the military, he attended both Fenn and John Carroll Colleges and enjoyed a career in industrial engineering for 40 years. He was a member of the Reminderville Stock Club for many years. In his free time John enjoyed traveling, especially to the beaches along the eastern shore and Europe. He loved vacationing with his family and attending his children’s sporting events and spending time with his grandchildren. John was always with his family because they gave him the most enjoyment in life. He was a friendly man who could strike up a conversation with anyone he met. No one was a stranger to John, and with his warm heart and likeable personality, he was a stranger to none. John once said that he wanted to be remembered as a thoughtful and kind man, that he was a loyal and devoted husband and father, a man who never hurt anyone.  He was a much-loved family man.

A Memorial Mass will be held at St. Paschal Baylon Church, 5384 Wilson Mills Rd, Highland Heights, OH 44143, on Saturday, February 23, 2019 at 10:30 AM, where the family will receive friends from 9:30 to 10:30 AM.

Contributions may be made in memory of John to Cleveland APL, 1729 Willey Ave, Cleveland, OH 44113.

Condolence from Nick Tozzi on February 15th, 2019 1:39 pm

I recall chatting with Mr. Alt, aka “The Big Kahuna”, in his living room while waiting for his son Dave when Dave and I were in our teens and twenties. Dave and I would go out on the town if “going out on the town” is what you can call going to places in Lyndhurst and Mayfield Heights.

I enjoyed those chats with Mr. Alt and he and Mrs. Alt would always make me feel welcome in their home. There were many good times and laughs there with the Alts and their kids, Jackie, Greg, Amy and Dave. I remember those good times fondly and my deepest sympathy to the Alt family and their friends.
