    John was born on April 21, 1929, in Jamestown Township, Grant County, the son of Frank and Louise (Kunkel) Lange. He was united in marriage to Evelyn M. (Digman) Lange on August 5, 1953, at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, Kieler. John loved farming and having his children close by. He always had at least one child with him while farming so it seemed only natural that he and Rich would farm together for years. When John moved off the farm, his grandson, Ryan, bought his farm to continue the farming legacy on Pleasant Valley Road. John was an usher at St. Mary’s Church for many years, a member of the Catholic Knights, American Legion, K.C. Council, the NFO and Organic Valley Co-op.

    John is survived by seven children, Gary (Robert Van Dyke) of Rancho Mirage, CA; Joe (Sandy) Lange of Deerfield, WI; Mary Jane (Kevin) Colopy of Zanesville, OH; Ann (Larry) Miesen of Cuba City, WI; Pat (Dave) Melzer of Elk Grove Village, IL; Joan (Randy) Check of Reedsburg, WI; Cathy (Herb) Yanke of Prairie du Sac, WI; daughter-in-law Patty Lange; twenty grandchildren, twelve great-grandchildren; sisters-in-law, Mary Lange of Dickeyville, WI, Bernita Digman of Hazel Green, WI; Harriet Lindner of Sparta, WI; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his wife of 59 years, Evelyn, his oldest son, Richard, his parents and in-laws, sister Mary Agnes (Ossie) Tranel, brother Eddie Lange, brother and sisters-in-law, Lavern (Leona) Digman, Marcie (Benny) Dietzel, Harold Lindner, and Edwin Digman.
