Kevin R. Johns Obituary

Kevin Robert Johns, “Jon-Z", 53, of Fremont, Ohio passed away after a hard-fought battle with cancer on Sunday, May 12, 2024, surrounded by his family. Kevin was born on Friday, November 13, 1970, in Fremont, Ohio to Robert and Christie Johns. He is survived by his sons, Dylan and Devin; his loving parents, Robert and Christie; his sister, Brandi (Carlos) Baez; nephews, Carlos Jr, Roberto, Alejandro, and Antonio; aunt, Beth (Alan) Stephenson; and cousins, Matthew and Benjamin Lagrou. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Harvey and Mildred Johns and Lynn and Joyce Goebel.


Kevin attended Fremont Ross High School and graduated in 1989. He attended Ohio State University and Terra Technical College where he earned an associate’s degree in International Business with an emphasis in Spanish. He left that career path to pursue his love of cooking which eventually led him to open his restaurant, "Jon-Z's Place”, in Fremont alongside his parents which was well known for its donut burgers and wraps.


His love language was food and he enjoyed baking and cooking for his friends and family. He was always willing to help with parties or celebrations of any kind where he could be found serving up his delicious creations. He was a lifelong fan of the classic Star Wars series and never missed an episode of the Walking Dead. He enjoyed spending time with his friends as much as possible and had a fondness for collecting and selling Funko Pops and could recently be found spending his weekends in a booth with his father at local flea markets.


He was an avid sports fan with his favorite teams including the Ohio State Buckeyes, Cleveland Indians, Green Bay Packers, Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Cleveland Browns. A celebration of Kevin's life will be held Friday, May 31 from 6:00-9:00 PM at The Victors Event Center, 2270 Hayes Avenue, Fremont, Ohio. If you knew Kevin, you knew that he was not a fan of formal attire so please dress casual and wear one of his favorite teams if you'd like.


Memorial contributions can be made to the family to use towards his final expenses.
