I met John at Dale Haymakers show a couple times. Great guy . His son Alan lives in Washington Illinois. Told me his dad went out on a Saturday morning to dig a post hole for the garden and dropped over . Believe he had posted or logged on earlier that morning. He was a big supporter of both Dale's Orange Power of the Past show and Rantouls Half Century of Progress. Miss big John ,always in his AllisChalmers suspenders.

He was the pioneer of posting pictures on this site. It was an involved process but it worked. Back when it was dial up and the fist message was "Youve got mail" He started the handle with name and location included. You can still pick out the old timers just by their handle.

John Schweizer, 58

Posted 

John W. Schweizer, 58, of rural Rankin, died on Saturday, May 5, 2012, at Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana.

Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 9, at Baier Family Funeral Services in Paxton. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, May 10, at the funeral home with the Rev. Daniel A. Olson officiating.

Burial will be in Glen Cemetery in Paxton.

Mr. Schweizer was born in Pana on June 26, 1953, the son of Charles E. and Bertie Elizabeth (Bagley) Schweizer. He married Barbara J. Schumate in Champaign on Aug. 30, 1975, and she survives.

A 1971 Nokomis High School graduate, he earned his bachelor of science degree from the University of Illinois in agriculture mechanics. He was employed as a feed and seed salesman for the Ludlow Coop Elevator.

Mr. Schweizer received the U of I Distinguished Alumni Award and the Alumni Volunteer Service Award. He was a member of the Beta Sigma Psi Alpha Chapter and the I & I Tractor Club.

A volunteer fireman in Colfax and a former Cub Scout leader and soccer coach, he enjoyed tractors, NASCAR and St. Louis Cardinals baseball. His greatest joy was spending time with his granddaughters and helping his sons work on their houses.

In addition to his wife, Mr. Schweizer is survived by his father; stepmother, Winona Schweizer of Nokomis; two sons, Charles (wife Lara) Schweizer of LeRoy and Alan (wife Sarah) Schweizer of Washington; two granddaughters, Kaitlin and Samantha Schweizer; two brothers, Dave (wife Becky) Schweizer of Witt and William Schweizer of Coffeen; mother-in-law, Erma Shumate of rural Rankin; and numerous other relatives.

Wow! Great man he was! I met him at Dales show as well. He was always on his D17 forklift at Dales helpin' folks with getting stuff off of trailers and flat beds. (I think it was a reversed D17)  Jo Jo still mentions once in a while about big John with the big smile. She was chattin' with John at our tables for quite a while at one of Dales shows.

John was a very nice and kind gentleman.  He and I were from the same town and visited several times a year.  He sold me an old #73 plow for parts many years ago.  He had quite a collection and I believe his wife and son, Alan, still have most if not all of it.  RIP, John.
