The Man, The Legend

Everybody that knew him loved him, and everybody knew him.

John passed August 25, 2021 with his family by his side. John's life was full and he lived it to the fullest up until the end. He was known for riding his Harley into his 80's at 80+ mph.

John grew up in Rexland Acres, where he made many life long friends. He spent several years making a living racing cars, but for most of his career he worked as a heavy equipment operator. His job took him all over California where he made friends everywhere he went.

John traveled the world while serving his country in the Navy. We are grateful for his service.

John was always impeccably dressed in a white t-shirt and ready for a cold beer after a hard day. So please raise a glass of your favorite beverage in his honor.

John will be missed by all. Until we meet again.

John is survived by his sister, daughter, granddaughter and great granddaughters. He was predeceased by his parents, son, and grandson.

Services will be held at the Bakersfield National Cemetery, 30338 E. Bear Mountain Blvd, Arvin, CA on Friday, September 17, 2021 at 2:00pm. With full Military Honors
