John was a long time resident of Ardmore, AL. He was a self -employed electrician. His hobby and passion was sound work. He was the type of man that would give you the shirt off his back. To many, he was sound man, electrician, plumber (which he just hated plumbing), and what ever else that needed to be fixed. He would help his family and friends and not expect anything in return for it. He was always helping the Ardmore community. He loved helping out at the Boys and Girls Club annual Cruise In and Meet the Tigers. If it had anything to do with sound he wanted to be a part of it. He always had a joke, enjoyed spending time with his family, friends and our 10:30 Valley Tavern Family. He was a great husband, father, pawpaw and friend that had a big heart. He will be missed by many.

A visitation will be held on Saturday, June 23, 2018 at Ardmore Chapel Funeral Home, Ardmore, AL from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM.
