John was a craftsman and proud life-long member of the working class. He was a master of furniture refinishing and restoration, at one point owned an antique store and restored many historically significant buildings. He eked out a living in construction all across the country and worked on a commercial fishing vessel in Alaska with his wife Marsha. He was an accomplished painter, gunsmith and knife maker. Equally at home in a honky-tonk bar or discussing ancient Greek philosophy, John was truly a well-read and diverse individual.
He was preceded in death by his mother Judy and his wife Marsha Thomas Ferguson. He leaves behind his father and two brothers David and Gerald, as well as four children; Jesse, Joe, Levi & Rachel and two step-sons Jeremiah and Brian, as well as eight grand-children. A private ceremony will be held at his home.

|They Live On
Those we love remain with us
For love itself
Cherished memories never fade
Because one loved
Those we love can never be
More than a thought
For as long as there’s a memory,
on within our heart.
