Obituary for John Chalupa

John Chalupa age 79, passed peacefully on Tuesday September 4, 2018. He was born June 28th, 1939 in Upper Milford Township to Michal and Anna Chalupa and was the sister to Mary Wisniewski.
John was a 1957 graduate of Allentown High School. John later enlisted in the United States Army in 1958 and was honorably discharged December of 1963, in which time he was stationed and met and married Rosa Dubar in Panama. John later pursued his dream as a professional chef and obtained his diploma in “Advanced Training Chef” in 1965 from Culinary Institute of America, then located in Connecticut.

John resided and raised his daughters in Warminster, then returned to Connecticut to further his education in his mid 40’s and received a bachelor’s degree from the University of New Haven in Hotel and Restaurant Management.
John enjoyed playing the drums not only in the military but as a hobby in a wedding band in his 30’s. Our father John truly fulfilled his life through simple pleasures. He had a dry sense of humor always had an eye rolling corny joke to share and waking up at 4:30 AM some days to pick up breads, rolls ect. to get them to food pantries. He volunteered at the Ukrainian Church making pierogies which was a chore, yet a highlight of his life that he enjoyed. John was known for making rice pudding and sharing with his neighbors. He touched many lives around him through Christ, sharing and serving God.
John is survived by his two daughters, Elizabeth Ann Holmes and Christine Marie Chalupa and his only granddaughter, Summer Nicole Holmes.
