John died on Monday, September 14, 2020 at the age of 65. His wife was holding his hand, he requested and received the last rites and passed peacefully unto the Lord. He was born in Garrison, North Dakota but was a life-long resident of Louisiana. John enlisted and served in the Army as a Medical Corpsman. John especially enjoyed live music and dancing with his wife. He was an amateur actor. He was a huge fan of Riverside, LSU, and Saints football and NASCAR.  Some of John’s fondest memories would be of his travels.
