John Edward Rufenacht, 83, passed away peacefully on Wednesday May 26, 2021 at Shannon Medical Center in San Angelo.
John was born in St. Louis Missouri to Edward and Elizabeth Rufenacht on December 28, 1937.
He attended San Angelo High School until 1957, when he joined the US Navy. After he returned to San Angelo, he made a name for himself by working as an auto mechanic. He loved racing cars and motorcycles competitively. In 1965 he became a lineman and moved to Del Rio. His passion for motorcycles led to marketing and selling them which opened the door to starting his own business, Del Rio Cycle Sales where he sold BSA’s and Kawasaki’s. This continued until the late 80’s. His love to tinker with small engines evolved into another business venture, Val Verde Lawn. In 1995 he returned to San Angelo where he continued various “entrepreneurial adventures”.
Survivors include his wife Martha “Marty” of 53 years, 8 children, son John T Rufenacht and wife Cathy of San Angelo, daughter Toni Hunter of San Angelo, hororary son Darin Kolesar of Georgetown, son Kenneth Rufenacht and wife Bradley of Austin, daughter Ricci Hunter of San Angelo, son Sam Rufenacht and wife Leslie of Round Rock, son Chalk Scott III of San Angelo, daughter Kelli Beach and husband Jason White of Clyde. 7 granchildren, Erren Graham, Megan Rufenacht, Conner Rufenacht and wife Treasure, Lauren Beach, Graeme Rufenacht, Haven Rufenacht and Kendelle Rufenacht.
A very special thank you to Nurse Brittany, Nurse Victoria, Dr. Hitchcock and the staff at Shannon Medical Center for their compassion and care.
We would also like to thank the VA Hospital of San Angelo and Big Spring for their care that was provided over the years.
A visitation will be held from 9 am to 8 pm, Friday, June 4, 2021 at Shaffer Funeral Home in San Angelo. In lieu of flowers, please donate to a charitable organization of choice.

My sincerest condolences to Marty and Family.
John was an old old friend and I appreciated so much "his reunion".
It was good to see him and all the others who attended.
May he now rest in peace with God's blessings.
