John Harvey Tressler III

February 7, 1951 ~ November 26, 2021 (age 70) 70 Years Old


Oldtown, MD – John Harvey Tressler III, 70, of Oldtown, MD, passed away Friday, November 26, 2021, at his home with his wife and children. 

Born February 7, 1951, in Oldtown, MD, John was the son of the late John H. Tressler JR and Ruth E. (Lewis) Tressler.

A graduate of Oldtown High School, Class of 1969, and Veteran of the Maryland National Guard (Cumberland Engineering Division).  John retired from the Allegany County Roads Dept. (Oldtown Garage) after 32 Years of faithful service.  Charter Member of the Oldtown Lions Club, Lifetime Member of the Oldtown Fire Dept., Piney Mt. Sportsman Club and his personal JV SCAT Hunting Club.    

John loved to hunt and was an avid sportsman, and was proud to defend his 2nd Amendment and President Trump.  John enjoyed working with his hands and fixing everything that was broken for everyone else.  John would always say “I am a Jack of all Trades, but a Master of None” and he would also say “If I can’t fix it, then it wasn’t broke to begin with.”     

John is survived by his wife of 50 Years, Susan E. (Shuck) Tressler; his sons; Thomas John Tressler (Terri), Brian Lewis Tressler (Marsha) and Daughter Tricia Ann Tressler.  He also leaves behind his most precious Prides and Joys, his Grandchildren, Tristan John Tressler (Kyra); Brittany Tressler (Braeden), Dayton Tressler, Grace Tressler, Alyssa Tressler, Amy Tressler and his two-Great-Grandsons, Brantley John Tressler and Beau Waylon Tressler.

He also leaves behind his three sisters, June, and his twin sisters; April E. McKenzie (Vince) and Linda E. Iliff (Mike).  John leaves behind many numerous nieces and nephews.  John also leaves behind multitudes of friends whom have already felt this loss when they got this news on the first day of deer season that John was no longer with us. 

John told his sister April the day before he left this earth, he was going to be hunting in Heaven with his Dad soon and he made it there the day before deer season.  So we don’t think of this as a loss, but that John got his wish and he is finally at peace and pain free up there hunting with his Dad.  We all knew that John was never late for Dinner so we feel that some kind of Thanksgiving is also taken place up there with Grandma. 

Celebration of Life / Memorial Service will be held at the Oldtown Fire Department 18712 MD-51, Oldtown Maryland 21555, on Friday, December 3rd, 2021 from 5-8 with a service being held during.   A special thank you goes out to Pastor Leo Lavin, Pastor Steve Nelson and Carolyn Wilson.
