 A Truckers Last Ride:
He traveled the roads In years gone past A life he chose and Hoped it would last Driving all night From state to state Trying to get home And arriving so late He parked his truck now His engine has stopped And those who love him Their hearts have dropped He traveled the country With a smile of great pride Now he drives the streets of Paradise On the trucker's last ride MAY GOD RIDE WITH YOU 10-4 AND GOODBYE.

John was survived by his wife of 44 years Dinah, his son & daughter Donovan (Amber) and Tonya & grandchildren Lyrik’lee, Hunter and Brooke and Samantha. Great grandson Wyatt. His sisters, Sandy, Dottie then many cousins, nieces, and nephews lots of family and friends. John was preceded in death by his mother, father and sister Phyllis.
