John went on to Odessa College and was employed with the Texas State Highway Department in Crane.
John was hurt in an accident in 1974. John was told he would never walk again. Well, God had other plans, âA Miracleâ he walked out of Houstonâs TIRR.
John loved the Judgeâs job and always tried his best to be fair and find answers if he didnât know. His bright personality and knowing his job was key.
John loved his wife Beverly, Daughter Amy, Son Scott but, his âSpecial Sunshineâ now was his Granddaughter, Paisleyâ¦those two made the world-go-round.
John fell ill this last week and with great pain left this old world. He had fought like a champ and will always be remembered as One of the Best!
