A longtime resident of Franklin and Williamson County, John was born August 29, 1962 in Jackson, Tennessee. John attended Lambuth College and earned and bachelor’s degree in Business Administration in 1984. John and Michelle met while both were in college at Lambuth. They married on August 3, 1986.
John enjoyed a successful career in real estate in Williamson County for many years serving as a Realtor, principal broker and brokerage manager.

He served on numerous Realtor boards and committees, including the board of directors of the Williamson County Association of Realtors. He held multiple professional designations and certifications and received numerous awards during his career including being named WCAR’s “Realtor of the Year” in 2014.
John was a loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather. John enjoyed spending time with his family and traveling the world with Michelle. He loved his church family at Christ Community Church in Franklin, where he served as a ruling elder for many years.
A Celebration of Life service will be held at Christ Community Church at a later date to be determined. John will be inurned and interred in a private-family graveside service next to his father and mother at Williamson Memorial Gardens.
