John Stanley Wojack

On Saturday, September 14, 2019, John Stanley Wojack, founder of Heat Mizer Glass in Isanti, passed away peacefully with his family by his side. John was born September 30, 1940 in Minneapolis, MN to Stanley and Linnea. John graduated from Edison High in 1958 where he was active in the Inventors’ Club, Ski Team and it is where he met his future wife, Lois Jostad and an amazing Love Story began. They were married on September 15, 1962. John founded Heat Mizer Glass, Inc. and has owned and operated it for over 45 years. Prior to this, he worked for Harmon Glass and Western Union. He and Lois also “worked” for the Blizzard Ski School. John had many passions beyond helping others whenever possible. Old cars, boating, hunting, pyrotechnics, travel, attending grandkid activities and most importantly TIME spent with FAMILY. John was also very active over the years in various organizations. These included Lions Club, Long Lake Improvement Association, Corvette Clubs, Vintage Snowmobile Racing and various Conservation groups. Ducks Unlimited was very near and dear to his heart and he made sure his children and grandchildren also saw the importance of appreciating and preserving wildlife. John had a Big Heart when it came to helping his “kids”! Whether it was friends of the kids, kids of his friends, Foreign exchange kids, nieces, nephews, he was ALWAYS available to listen and help as needed. This was perhaps one of his greatest Legacies. Many were Blessed by his help. John was preceded in death by his father Stanley, mother Linnea (Bjorkman) Glodek, stepfather Frank Glodek and Aunt Elsie (Bjorkman) Hansen.
