Johnathan was born in North Carolina but grew up in the great state of Texas. He moved to the peninsula area in his adult years, where he settled and called this home. He served his country proudly in the U.S. Army for roughly 4 years as a military police officer.

Everyone was his friend. He enjoyed spending time with his family, always going out of his way to make sure they knew how much he loved and appreciated them. His children were his most prized possession and meant more to him than anything in this world. He leaves behind a legacy of love and selflessness. To have known John, was truly to know love. He will forever remain in our hearts and souls of the many he touched throughout his life. Until we meet again, John. We will forever love & miss you.
