John H. Bister
September 24, 1942 ‒ November 15, 2018
John Bister passed away unexpectedly Thursday, November 15, 2018 in his home. He was 76.
He was born September 24, 1942 in Mansfield to parents Joseph Sr. & Elizabeth (Rittinger) Bister. John worked at AK Steel, where he worked for 30 years until retiring in 1997.
In spare time, he took pleasure in riding his motorcycle and fishing. But above all, he will be most remembered for his loving personality and his willingness to give the shirt off his back to those he cared for.
He is survived by his son Charles Bister; grandchildren Tyler Wood, Skylar Bister, and Remington Jones; and several great grandchildren.
In addition to his parents, John was preceded in death by his sister and brother Joseph Bister Jr.
