John was a very sensitive and loving person. Although he struggled in much of his adult life, he always had a big heart and would share whatever he had with anyone. He was making plans (it was his heart’s desire) to take a trip to California to see his daughter and grandchildren.

John loved the outdoors. Before moving to Kansas, he worked many years as a groundskeeper/caretaker of a large property at Piute Mountain near Lake Isabella, California. He dreamed of going there again someday and expressed he wanted Piute to be his final resting place.

John is now reunited with his grandparents, Virginia Landrum, J.D. Landrum, and Ethel Frost; Uncle, Paul Landrum. John recently shared with his family that he loved Jesus and Jesus was in his heart. John will be missed and will forever be in our hearts.
