John held center stage when he walked into a room
Bright and warm hearted he was a friend to all
John was an encourager he cared about others
He enjoyed farming and loved the outdoors
John knew what it took to make a farm work

His family was the center of his life
John loved Martha Ann with all of his heart
Together they enjoyed and rejoiced in John Wesley
The Lord was John’s foundation
He followed Jesus all of his life

Liberty Baptist Church and the Church family
Were John’s extended family-he prayed for each person
John served Amite, Wilkinson, Pike, Walthall, Adams and Jefferson
He gave these folks the best he had
He was committed to the people of Mississippi

Always cheerful and welcoming
Never looking at the negative side of life
John lived for Jesus
He sacrificed his time and energy
Living each day to honor and glorify the Christ
