John T. Willeford

November 7, 1971 — February 25, 2023

John T. Willeford, age 51, passed away on Saturday, February 25, 2023, in Oshkosh. He was born on November 7, 1971, in Oshkosh to Michael Sr. and Teresa (Hensen) Willeford.


John lived in Oshkosh his whole life, graduating from Oshkosh West High School and the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. After college, one of John’s biggest achievements was creating a successful business with his father, brother, and uncle. He was also very proud of the house he built, and the thousands of trees he planted around it. John enjoyed golf, Wisconsin sports, and the outdoors. He traveled around the country playing different golf courses, taught his kids how to play, and brought his family and friends closer together through the sport.


John is survived by his children: Benjamin and Kate Willeford; father, Michael Willeford Sr.; brothers: Michael Jr. (Tina) and Rob (Kathy) Willeford; former spouse, Jody Willeford; and many friends and extended family. He was preceded in death by his mother, Teresa Jarapko.


A memorial service for John will be held at 6:00 pm on Friday, March 3, 2023 at Konrad-Behlman Funeral Home, 100 Lake Pointe Drive, Oshkosh. Visitation will take place at the funeral home on Friday from 3:00 pm until the time of service.


In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to The Wounded Warriors Project, a charity John was very passionate about. To support the Willeford Family in raising awareness for men’s mental health, a donation to the National Alliance on Mental Illness would be greatly appreciated. Another way to honor John would be to plant a tree in his memory, as he did for his mother.
