John was born in November 14, 1936, to Kasper and Mary Aman in Mandan. John was married to Eleanor Schmidt on October 6, 1959 at St. Anne’s Catholic Church. Together they made their home on the Aman Family Farmstead in rural Oliver County; which they raised their four children, Suzanne, Tony, Mary and Lisa. In 1997, they moved to Mandan following their retirement.
John had many talents when it came to using his hands. He especially loved figuring out how things worked and could repair almost anything from lawn movers to large farm equipment. He loved to repair old lawn movers and sell them at rummage sales for extra spending money. If John could not afford to buy it, he tried to figure out how to build it. He loved his grandchildren and had a soft spot in his heart for animals.
John will be deeply missed by his children, Suzanne (Jeff) Cahill, Tony (special friend, Sally), Mary (Rick) Henke, Lisa (Kent) Doll; grandchildren, Ross (Hailey) Aman, Rebecca (Matthew) Krueger, Micheal (Samantha) Henke, Tristen (Kirby) Kragenbring, Colin (Janie) Cahill, and Ethan Doll; great grandchildren, Priya Krueger, Winslet Krueger, McKinlee Henke, Emrie Henke and Laken Aman; half brother, Albert Kostelecky, sister, Mary Ann Powell; and many nieces and nephews.
John is proceeded in death by his wife, Eleanor, his parents, Mary and Kasper Aman, half sisters and brothers, Martha Novotny, Margaret Weber, Rose Landeis, Anton Aman and Joseph Aman.
A special thank you to Jerry Zittleman, the staff at St. Gabriel’s Community and Sanford Hospice Care for providing comfort to John on his journey home.
