He graduated high school in Eldon, after which he enlisted in the United States Military.  He served first in the United States Navy and later in the United States Air Force.

He would later work for Reynolds Electrical & Engineering Corporation.  Always a proponent of higher education, John would go back to school and go on to earn his Doctorate in Education.

John married Ossie Tidwell on November 24, 1971, and they celebrated over 49 years as man and wife.  He was a honored and adored father, grandfather, and great grandfather. 

John is preceded in death by his parents and his sister Vicky Weeks.
