Jonathan “Jon” Joseph Behnke’s soul was released from his body on April 15, 2021, in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Jon was born in Green Bay to Angela Behnke and Joseph Soletski on July 14, 1987. He graduated from Southwest High School in 2005, and worked as a custom framer at Michael’s Craft Store for fifteen years. He was a happy child and grew into a strong man who fought against his struggles. He was kind, thoughtful, generous, and a talented artist. He enjoyed spending time with his family and was adored especially by the children of the family. His personal goal every day was to make at least one person laugh. He is loved and missed by all who knew him.

Jon is survived by his mother, Angela Willems; stepfather, Scott Willems; father, Joseph Soletski; siblings, Samantha Polazzo and Joseph Soletski-Duaime; grandparents, John and Jeanae Behnke, and Jane Soletski; and many other friends and family members.

He brought joy and laughter to so many. To remember him, please listen to the song “Strawberry Fields Forever” by the Beatles and do a good deed.
