J. Alan Sexauer, commonly known to most as Crusher, died peacefully in his home on July 26, 2020. He was 72 years of age.

John was born on February 24, 1948 in Sydney, Ohio, son of the late Carl and Mary Jane (Cligrow) Sexauer. He grew up in Detroit and became a Warren Police Officer in 1975, serving 25 dedicated years and retired in June of 2000. During those years, he was also one of the original officers of the County of Macomb Enforcement Team (C.O.M.E.T) As a patriotic man, John was a Fraser Councilman from 2004-2008. He was a member of the Fraser Lions Club and loved working the carnivals! Alongside his Father, he was a member of the Shriners He looked out for the greater good and was a beacon to his community. He understood the value of friendship and always had a helping hand. He used to love weekends with his buddies golfing, drag racing and having a few cold beers. He also loved spending weekends up north at Houghton Lake with family. John always squeezed in a nap and made sure he was always current with the latest news. Crusher will always be known for his sense of humor and his love for others. He will be deeply missed and his light will continue to glow in our hearts forever.

John is the loving husband of 20 years to Colleen; cherished father of Lauren; dear step-father of Ryan, Christopher and Blake; adored grandfather of MacKenzie and Savannah; beloved brother of Amy (Jim) Pacyga; and dearest Uncle and friend to many.

My deepest sympathy to all who mourn John. We graduated the same year, 1966. John wasn't a close friend, but everyone knew who John was. First of all, because he stood head and shoulders above the other students, you could always pick him out of a crowd. Secondly, because of his big heart. He was a gently giant who has been thought of often over the years. Everyone knew that John would do great things and he did.

God bless all who mourn his loss.
