John F. Clink, 62, of Rochester, passed away on Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017, at Mayo Clinic Hospital, Saint Marys Campus, from a pulmonary embolism.

He was born on Feb. 22, 1954, in Binghamton, N.Y., to Russell and Margaret Clink. His family moved to Rochester, Minn., in 1957. John attended John Marshall High School.

He enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1971 and was stationed in Germany until he was honorably discharged in 1973.

He married Pamela Guenther on July 18, 1981, and they lived in Mazeppa. They had two children Sara and Tyler Clink. They were later divorced.

In John's early years, he worked as a mason, and most recently, he worked at Dison's Cleaners until his health failed.

He attended Bible study and church at Autumn Ridge in Rochester. John made friends easily, laughed often, had a great sense of humor, was energetic and had a big heart for helping others. He enjoyed riding his Harley and working on his truck and motorcycle. Next Chapter Ministries played a powerful role in John's life over the last few years and taught him that God forgives, loves and restores.

John is survived by his father, Russell Clink, of Tucson, Ariz.; daughter, Sara Clink, of Mazeppa; son, Tyler Clink, of Mazeppa; granddaughter, Alliyah VanDenHemel; siblings, Bill, of Rochester, Russell Jr. (Emmy), of Champlin, Minn., Carol (Steve) Norvet, of Rochester, Jim (Vicky), of Rochester, and David, of Byron; nieces and nephews, Jenny (Dan) Erickson, of Alden, Minn., Cayla (Ben) Bowen, of Ham Lake, Minn., Eric Norvet, of Milwaukee Wis., Jenna (Preston) Renfro, of Burelson Texas, and Derek Clink, of Champlin, Minn.; and many cousins.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Margaret (Peggy) Clink.

A military burial will take place in Preston at the Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery at a later date.

Memorials to Next Chapter Ministries are preferred.
