John Erfman

John Erfman, of St. Peter’s, IN, passed away Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at the age of 76. A graduate of Brookville High School, John loved playing sports, especially basketball and track. John was known to be routine driven, opinionated, and a little ornery at times. He had no problem telling you how it was and expected no less from his family who liked to give it right back. John liked to keep up on the small town current events by following a simple daily routine. First thing in the morning he would stop by Alig’s
Shell and make sure everyone was off to a good morning, then in the evening he would stop by The St. Leon Tavern to make sure everyone had put in a hard day’s work. John was a member of Lawrenceburg Knights of Columbus, enjoyed playing golf and cheered for the Cincinnati Reds, Cincinnati Bengals, and IU. John was so proud of his kids, grandkids and great grandkids. He doted on the grandkids and attended as many of their sporting events that he could. John will be greatly missed by his wife of nearly 12 years Marilyn; his children Susan (John) Wartenberg
of Indianapolis, Krista (Scottie) Ricketts of Lawrenceburg, Stephen (Jeanie) Erfman of St. Leon, Eric (Angela) Erfman of Indianapolis, Lindsey (Keith) Huster of Orem, Utah, and Jill (Aaron) Sena of Guilford; 16 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren; siblings Jerry (Carolyn) Erfman, and Juliann (Leo) Wilhelm. He is preceded in death by his parents Ethel and Alfred Erfman, and brother James Erfman.
