Adam "Jack" Kabellar

Adam “Jack” Kabellar, 78, went home to be with the Lord on December 31, 2019. He was born September 14, 1941 to the late Adam and Annabel Kabellar in Barberton, OH. Jack was a retired minister having pastored in several different states over a 30 year timespan. He then went on to serve in other ministries, most recently Christian Healthcare Ministries, where he was known as the “Plant Manager”. Jack was a true friend, never knowing a stranger.

Jack was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his wife of over 56 years, Rosie; children, Kevin (Christine), Annette Bail and Loren (Ying) Kabellar; grandchildren, Christopher, Jordan, Zachary, and Makayla Kabellar, Adam and Andrew Bail, and Marina and Lyra Kabellar; great-grandchildren, Riley and Maddox; sisters, Jill (Hubert) Hotchkiss and Beth Kabellar; and many extended family members and friends.

Friends may call at Bacher Funeral Home, 3250 Greenwich Rd., Norton, on Sunday, January 5, 2020 from 2 to 4 p.m, where a funeral service will be held on Monday, January 6, 2020 beginning at 11 a.m., with visitation one hour prior. Pastor Henry Miller officiating.

Interment will be held at Greenlawn Memorial Park.

My sincerest condolences and prayers for the family. Jack was a beautiful soul and a wonderful friend. In the 6 short years I've known him he would always leave me uplifted and would make me laugh. He will be greatly missed. I know God gained another angel.

Jack was one of those special people who never met a stranger. He spent a couple of days visiting with us in Jacksonville, Florida and our neighbors know him better than they do us. He will aways be known for his kind heart. Heaven is a brighter place and I'm sure he knows everyone there by now. We are holding up his family in prayer at this tough time in their lives.

The only happy part of today is, is that we know where he went. It still hurts, but we don't grieve as those who have no hope. We seem to have more people who went ahead of us, than those left around us. You have a beautiful family, and with the prayers of your friends you will have ALL the help you need to experience this. We love you Annette and family!

The Heartland Conference of the Bible Methodist Connection of Churches wishes to express our sympathies and prayers to the Kabellar family at this time. Rev. Jack Kabellar was a faithful minister and respected by the conference. We pray that the grace of our Lord comforts Sis. Kabellar and all who sorrow. We also celebrate our brother's passing into the eternal presence of Jesus.

There was not a kinder, more pleasant person at CHM than Jack. He never left anyone without a smile on their face. I didnt know him long but I will miss him. He is a wonderful addition to Glory. What a blessing he must have been too you, his family. My prayers as you grieve.
