John was born March 9, 1937, in Butler, Georgia. He entered the US Army at an early age and served 3 years. He worked with Eastern Airlines for a short time, before starting his career with the FAA. John retired from the FAA, Air Traffic Division, in April 1993 with 34 years of service. He was very proud of his career with the FAA, and absolutely loved controlling airplanes.

John was an avid golfer and a member of Canongate for many years. He was able to complete his golf bucket list by playing Augusta National, St. Andrews Old Course, and Pebble Beach. He and Sara had toured all 50 states, and went on many trips to Europe.

He was very proud of his family and enjoyed spoiling his wonderful three grandchildren.

The family requests in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Eagle Ranch, P.O. Box 7200, Chestnut Mountain, GA 30502. John and Sara have supported this organization for troubled youth of Georgia for many years.
