Memorial Service for John Wackman on 3/20/21 at 1 pm EDT

There will be a Zoom memorial service on Saturday 3/20/21 at 1 pm EDT to celebrate John Wackman’s life. John passed away in January after being a prime mover in the Repair movement, first in the Hudson Valley, NY area and then around the world. He helped get a bunch of Repair Cafes started and co-authored the book The Repair Revolution: How Fixers Are Transforming Our Throwaway Culture with Elizabeth Knight-Moss.

Here is the invitation from his significant other Holly Shader:

Hello Friends and Family,

We are planning a memorial service to remember the life of John
Wackman on Saturday, March 20th at 1:00pm. The service will be
performed, via Zoom, by Pastor Jennifer Berry of the New Paltz United
Methodist Church. There will be fantastic music, of course, and time
for people to share remembrances.

Please help us by spreading the word to anyone who knew and loved
John. We will be sending out the link closer to the date.

Lots of love,
Lucy, Nate and Holly

Please let me know (reply here or email me at [email protected]) if you plan to attend and I will send you the link once I get it.
