John C. Naugler, 43, of Abington, died on January 21 unexpectantly.
Johnnie was the middle child of late Frank A. Naugler Sr. and Jeanne Naugler (Akusis). He is survived by his beautiful daughters, Ariana and Aleah. He was the little brother to Frank A. Naugler Jr. and big brother to Lorraine A. Lady (Naugler). He was the grandson of the late Lorraine A. Akusis (Purcell) and late George Akusis Sr. He is also survived by his nieces Michaeyla E. Naugler, Taylor J. Lady and Frankie G. Lady, his only nephew Aiden E. Lady, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
Johnnie was born and raised in Abington most of life. He enjoyed playing and tinkering with dirt bikes, cars, and trucks. He loved “busting ya balls” and giving bear hugs to the many he loved. He looked forward to fishing dates with his bro Frankie. He thrived on teasing his little sis Rainie, but proudly and unapologetically protected her more.
In true Johnnie-fashion, two weeks before graduating from South Shore VoTec, he dropped out to fulfill his dream career and work as a mechanic. He worked as a mechanic as long as he could through the excruciating and debilitating pain from necrosis of the hips in order to provide for his true loves, his daughters.
His daughters, Ariana and Aleah, were his everything and reasons for life. Ariana, his “Princess Poopy Pants”, inherited his sense of humor and heart of gold. They enjoyed breakfast together and hassling one another. Aleah, his “Baby Girl”, inherited his fiery sass and protective demeanor. They enjoyed trucks rides and McDonald’s together.
