John was born December 20, 1980, in Bossier City, LA. He passed away on Monday, December 20, 2022, in Ruston, LA. John was preceded in death by his grandmother, Marie Sasser, and grandfathers, Bobby Daugherty and Milton Odom.

John attended Mt. Olive School.  After school, John pursued a career in the oil field.  His favorite time was when he worked, as a well site geologist, for a large consulting firm.  Although John experienced some dark times, as so many young people do these days, he managed to bounce back.  His pride and greatest joy, in his life, was his daughter, Katie.
