A celebration of life will be at a future date at Chickamauga National Battlefield in Fort Oglethorpe, GA to commemorate his love for history and his previous participation in Civil War reenactments. In lieu of flowers, family requests John's wishes be honored by sending donations to: Autism Awareness, Special Olympics, or Trail Life.
The family would like to thank Viviant Healthcare and Hearth Hospice both of Chattanooga for the compassionate care provided during his final months, as he finished his race and transitioned to his eternal home.
