During his working life, John farmed, operated and repaired heavy equipment, mined coal, drilled wells and did long distance trucking, retiring in 1998 due to COPD.
In addition to his parents, John was preceded in death by sisters Susan and Barbara Spencer and parents-in-law Harry and Rosemary Williams.
In keeping with the family’s wishes, there are no calling hours, and a memorial service will be announced at a future date. Professional services have been entrusted to Morse & Kleese Funeral Home, 94 N. Center St., Canton.
