MagadaObitJohn Stephen Magada passed away at 2:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 22, 2010.
John was the beloved son of (the late) Stephen Magada and Virginia Magada of Bowling Green.
He is survived by Mary and Steven Magada-Ward and family of Murfreesboro, TN; Michael and Roseanna Magada of Chicago; Oscar and Marilyn Ogg and family of Lexington, OH; Florence Smith and family of Austin, TX; and Andrew Ogg of Oakland, CA.
John was preceded in death by his father Stephen, his grandparents Frank and Florence Ogg, his uncle Frank Ogg Jr., and his brother Gregory.
John was confirmed into the Catholic Church at St. Aloysius Parish in Bowling Green, OH.
John graduated from Bowling Green High School in 1984 and earned a Bachelors' Degree in Aviation Technology from Bowling Green State University in 1992. John was a gifted athlete and won numerous motocross trophies, including the Delta Motosport Park 250B Motocross Track championship in 1984.

He developed successful businesses in the motorcycle and transportation industries.
His life in Northwestern Ohio and involvement in the motorcycle industry allowed John to develop many strong and lasting friendships. John had a way of making even the simplest expression into a Johnny-ism; from his unique way of saying "yeah, yeah, yeah" to "come on!" John made everything brighter and, even during this difficult time, people who knew him found themselves laughing at something John once said or did.
John's greatest success, however, was as a son, brother, and friend. His family was everything to him and it was not uncommon to hear John refuse social invitations because he was "taking mom out to dinner" or because he was visiting his nephew Darius in Tennessee.
Even though John Magada has passed on, as an organ donor, he stayed true to his compassionate nature by giving hope to others.
Celebrate the friend, son, and brother that John has been. If you find this loss extremely difficult to deal with, think of this: if we could ask John if he made the world a better place, I think he would give that silly grin and say "Yeah, yeah, yeah!"
There will be a Mass of Christian Burial on Wednesday at 1 p.m. at St. Aloysius Church. Visitation is Tuesday from 5 to 8 p.m. at Dunn Funeral Home. Interment will follow at Oak Grove Cemetery,
