Text size

John was a loving brother, son, uncle and friend..He was preceded in death by his parents, Harold and Phyllis Roffmann, and his grandparents William and Lura Roffmann and John and Elamay Zenzen. He is survived by his siblings, Jennifer (John) Grant of Columbus, OH, Amy Roffmann New (Darin Smith) of Chandler AZ, Emily Roffmann Rogers of Tempe, AZ and Bill Roffmann of Carbondale, IL. He is also survived by nieces and nephews, Allison (Jeff) Lyons of Miles City, MT, Kaitlyn Rogers of Tempe, AZ, Alex Grant of Austin, TX, Ed Roffmann of Ada, MO and Jimmy Roffmann of Springdield, MO. John was a film major and 1992 graduate of SIU-Carbondale. He is beloved by friends and family for his sense of humor, quirky way of looking at the world and his encyclopedic knowledge of film and music history. There was nothing so fun as watching a director's cut with John. He was a founding member of the band Dead Cold Fish and writer and director of the films, "Well Lit" and "Powder Boy".
