John had a kind loving heart and was loved by so many. He always had a joke to tell even when he was gravely ill. He enjoyed making the nurses and those around him laugh. They said he was their favorite patient. He gave his heart to the Lord in 2018 at Village View Community Church. He loved his family and friends. He was a warrior with the help of Jesus during his years of illness. We love him so! Arrangements entrusted with BALDWIN BROTHERS Funeral & Cremation Society-Spanish Springs, 352-430-1449.
