Obituary

Obituary for John Rush Slattery

The Pacific’s setting sun no longer shines with full luster. John Rush Slattery, 59, of Santa Clarita, California, formerly of Mundelein, IL passed away on Friday, September 6, 2019, after a valiant battle against cancer.

John was born on June 12, 1960, in Evanston, IL. He was the second of six children of Albert Slattery Jr. and the late Cynthia Slattery Reddick. John grew up in the Chicago area, but had been a California resident for a number of years. On August 23,1986, he married Dawn Raasch, who survives. Also surviving to cherish his memory are his son Aaron, his fiancée, Troi, and his daughter Kathleen (Kady) Hernke along with her husband, Dustin, and grandson, Grayson. The gentle soul of the family, John’s kindness and generosity endeared him to his nieces, nephews, and to all he encountered.

Music has always played a role in John’s life, from a garage band as a child to a recording engineer at Sounder Studios in Los Angeles.

Not one to stay indoors, John loved being on the rugby pitch playing until he was 55. He also enjoyed fishing, skiing, and volleyball. He became an avid runner later in life

Along with his times spent poolside with family, dogs, and friends, John loved to be near the ocean. His ashes were scattered among the waves to allow his spirit to rest peacefully near his favored vistas.

A celebration of John’s life will be held on October 12, 2019 at St. Mary of the Annunciation Catholic Church, 22333 W. Erhart Rd. Mundelein, IL. Visitation will be held, at the Church, from 9:00 a.m. until the time of Mass beginning at 10:00 a.m.
