John Nistler Obituary

After a long battle with illness, John Nistler of Martindale, TX was welcomed into the Kingdom of Heaven on January 10, 2024 

John was greeted by his parents Donald, Sr. and Mary Ellen Nistler, as well as his sister Sherry and beloved dog, Axel. His final days were spent surrounded by friends and family who survive him, including his devoted wife Patricia Nistler, son Jonathan Nistler, daughter Holly Rodriguez, son-in-law Rick Rodriguez, and granddaughters Emma and Eleanor. His presence will be missed by his immediate family, surviving siblings Don Nistler, Ron Nistler, Susan Johnson, and Shirley Knox and their spouses, his stepdaughter Michelle Bonner, his men’s bible study group, and numerous friends. 

John’s legacy includes pioneering work in the semiconductor and alternative energy fields, a love of the outdoors, and a lifetime of adventures. He was an avid gardener, and could often found regaling others with tales of his current and future crops. John was equally passionate about the benefits and science of solar panels and has setup solar arrays around the world. 

The funeral is scheduled for 2:00pm on Saturday January 27, 2024 at Martindale Baptist Church with a reception to follow. All are welcome to attend and celebrate John’s life. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Patricia Nistler at PO Box 571, Martindale, TX 78655. The family would like to thank the hospital staff of Ascension Seton Hays Hospital for their care and comfort during these hard times.
