John B. Midash, age 93, of Newark, DE, passed away peacefully at home, while surrounded by his family, on Friday, December 9, 2016.
John was born in McAdoo, PA on June 9, 1923 and was the son of the late John A. and Elizabeth Midash. He was a proud veteran of WWII, serving as a member of the U.S. Air Force.

He was a longtime parishioner of Holy Family R.C. Church in Newark and a member of the Burtonwood Club. In his leisure time, John enjoyed completing woodworking projects. He will long be remembered for his gentle and good-hearted nature and strong work ethic. A loving and devoted husband, father and grandfather and great grandfather, he will be dearly missed.
