John Charles Bedini, 67

November 9th, 2016

John Charles Bedini, 67, passed away unexpectedly on Nov. 5, 2016. He was born in Glendale, Calif., on July 13, 1949, to Rosalee and Alex Bedini.

He moved to the Coeur d’Alene area in August 1990 and was presently living in Hayden. He was a proud member of the Hayden Lake Eagles where he served as Trustee. He loved cooking for various events held at the Eagles Lodge. His favorite pastime was working on and driving his hot rods and motorcycles.

He and his brother, Gary, ran electronics manufacturing businesses for more than 40 years. John had a natural talent for designing electronic circuits. Many times he would wake up from a dream and sketch the circuit down on any kind of paper he could find around the house. Most recently his talents were being used in the design and manufacturing battery chargers and solar tracking devices for use in home solar power units.

John was survived by his wife, Ronda Darrah-Bedini; sisters Sheryl Edgington and Andrea Brooks; brother-in-law Gary Edgington; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Services will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11, 2016, at the Hayden Lake Eagles, 1520 W. Wyoming Ave., Hayden, with a potluck to follow.

In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to the Kootenai Humane Society.
