Jonathon Mike Gundrum, 21, lost his battle with depression on Dec. 1, 2010.

He was a resident of Oshkosh, but called Horicon his home. He died on Wednesday afternoon at University Hospital in Madison.

Jon was born at home on July 5 in Dallas, Texas. His parents Becky Brath (Marty) and Jeff Gundrum (Jajan) of Horicon, mourn his loss. He is survived by four siblings Matthew Gundrum, Emily Borkenhagen (Tim), Jacob Gundrum, Timothy Gundrum (Torri) as well as two step sisters Juanita Brath and Amanda Gibson (Matt) and two half brothers Bernie and Jeffrey Gundrum.

Jon was a graduate of Victory Christian High in Neosho. He was employed by Sonic in Oskosh. Jon enjoyed snowboarding and exploring the Horicon Marsh. Christian Life Fellowship in Mayville was Jon's church home. Jon was a soldier in the U.S. Army, following in the footsteps of his older brothers Jake and Tim.

Jon was loved by many and had a smile that would warm the room. He had a great sense of humor and loved to make friends and family laugh. Jon's favorite things to eat were popsicles, hot pockets and microwave macaroni and cheese.

In addition to parents and siblings, Jon is survived by his maternal grandmother Elaine Crivello and paternal grandmother Helen Gundrum, nieces and nephews Allie, Elliot, Gabe and Lincoln Borkenhagen and Lexy, Hailey and Tai Brath as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins. Jon also is survived by his very best friend Heather Perrotto who on many occasions counseled Jon through difficult times. Finally, Jon also leaves behind his pet dog Hercules.

Jon was preceded in death by his beloved grandfathers Mike Crivello, Bernard Gundrum and Wesley Nehs.

Services for Jon will be on Saturday at Christian Life Fellowship, 113 Clark St., in Maville.
