Back To Front Page


John D. Tharp of LaPorte, formerly of Chesterton, has recently passed.

He was born in May 1957 to George L. and Edna M. (Sue) Tharp, who preceded him in death.

Also preceding him were brothers Keith, Dan, and Mike.

John is survived by brothers Gordon (Patty) of the Pines, Gerald (Beverly), Don (Judy), Terry (Judy) and Tim, all of Chesterton, Scott (Stacy) of LaPorte and half-brother Robert (Joyce) Huber of Valparaiso.

John also leaves behind many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends including his good friends at the Rumely Historical Apartments and his biker buddies.

We know that if he could speak now, he would say, “It’s been a good ride”.

Private family services will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to your favorite charity.

Email condolences may be sent to
