He was married 53 years to Rachel M. Gehman Brubacker. Born in Morgantown, he was the son of the late Paul and Lena Sensenig Brubacker.
John was employed for many years as a carpenter, working at Agri, Inc., Blue Lake Builders and Fast Supply. He was later self employed as a handyman in Reading. He was a member of Shiloh Mennonite Church in Reading and had spent 15 years as a missionary in Grenada. John had a heart for the people of Grenada and spoke of them often.
John enjoyed spending time with his family, singing along to good music, fixing plumbing issues, leading “Brubacker hikes”, and talking to everyone he met. He was a great storyteller and interacted well with children.

He was predeceased by a son in law, Jim Naumann.
