Dub StJohn

Dub StJohn, age 69, passed away peacefully Sunday April 21, 2024.  Dub was born on July 23rd, 1954, in Unionville, Missouri, the son of William E. StJohn and Georgia G. Bates.  Although born in Missouri, he lived 67 years in and around Prairie City.  He graduated from PCHS in 1972 and was a football jock earning Defensive Player of the Year his senior year.

Dub worked many construction positions.  He was meticulous, thorough, and very skilled at many things.  Dub was united in marriage to Pam (Kroeger) Kuecker March 2, 1992.  Together they have worked on restoring their home.

He was the epitome of ornery and always the life of the party.  A grandson best described Dub as a lover of “shenanigans”.  He loved fireworks, cards, fishing, fishing stories and Crown Royal.  But most of all he loved his grandkids, frequently giving out “grandpa treats.”

Dub is survived by his wife Pam; his children Christina (Donny Butterfield) Kuecker of Prairie City, Matt (Betsy) Kuecker of Eldora, Brandon (Haley) StJohn of Oskaloosa and Andy (Whitney) Kuecker of Collins; his step-mother Sherry StJohn of Monroe; sister Glenda Turner of Prairie City; brothers Brett StJohn of Prairie City and Jamie (Lisa) StJohn of Newton: grandchildren Aiden Kuecker, John Kuecker, Corbin StJohn, Sage Kuecker, Brooklyne Kuecker, Ella StJohn, Jude Kuecker, and Hayes Kuecker.

Dub was preceded in death by his mother in 2023, father in 2020, brother-in-law Darrell Turner in 2014 and step-father Ron Felder in 1999.
