Memories through the looking glass


John William Moreland a child of God.

As a little boy he liked to go exploring, was always getting into mischief, liked to take sticks of butter from the refrigerator and sneak off behind the house to enjoy and would beg his sister Karyn, who was younger than him, to walk him out to the out house because he was afraid to go by himself.

As the boy grew into a man, John loved spending time with his family and friends. Playing games, listening to music, cruising up and down Main Street and hanging out at Steak-N-Shake.

As the world changed and time moved on, War was in the future. To avoid the draft, John enlisted in the Army. He was a striking young man in his uniform and stole the hearts of many. While John and a few of his buddies were at Fort Leonard Wood, Karyn his sister and some of their closest friends would visit on the weekends. However, our Country needed these young men to fulfill their duty and head to Vietnam. John did his due diligence and fought to keep our country safe.

Once home and wiser beyond his years, John pushed hard to put the War in the past. He enjoyed spending time with his younger brothers, Bobby, Timmy and sisters Karyn and Kathy. He met a beautiful young lady and they started a family of their own. From this union two beautiful girls were born. Lisa was the first and John was happy beyond belief. Not long after they were expecting their second. Traci came into the world a beautiful bundle of joy. This family was now complete.

As we all know times were hard and life happens and things started to slowly crumble. John did his best with what he had and never complained when life through him a curveball. He stayed close with his family and kept an eye on his girls.

Time moved on…. John was always willing to lend a helping hand, help teach us all some life skills, give advice even if we didn’t want to hear it and always had an interesting story to tell. From camping trips with the family, float trips, dirt bike riding, horseback riding, demolition derby’s and slingshot wars in the front yard at the old farmhouse.

John met his life long companion Hattie “Faye” and together they had a family of nine. Life was hard but they made it work. They loved the life that they had made together. The door was always open for family and friends and many of us got to experience some of that love and life they had built.

Time never stops moving and life goes on.

Family came and went, children grew older and started families of their own and life just kept moving forward.
Johns health slowly started to diminish and his weekly calls to family and friends became far and few. We all found ourselves missing his boisterous laugh and snarky comebacks.
Surrounded by family, John William Moreland passed away on May 16, 2019 at the age of 70 after a courageous battle with cancer. Some may say he lost the battle, but since the cancer passed at the same time as he did, technically it was a tie.
John William Moreland a child of God will be sorely missed by all.
May he forever Rest In Peace.

To all his family and friends reading this… please know that John loved us all. Didn’t matter how much time had passed between calls and visits. He knew we loved him as well. These memories of John's life are just a very few. We all have a story to tell. These are just a few of mine.
Much love, The Country Girl (Shannan Jean)
I wish you enough...
