On August 30, 2018, John passed away unexpectedly, due to complications from a heart attack, at Deaconess Midtown Campus in Valparaiso.
He is preceded in death by his mother, Mildred (1994) and father, Johnny (2006). John is survived by his wife; Jennifer M. Allen; 6 children; Winter Burns of Valparaiso, Johnna Anderson (Durham) of Loogootee, Jennifer Tuck (Durham), Marcus Fridy, Elizabeth Durham, and Ethan Durham, all of Valparaiso; 8 brothers and sisters; Roy Durham Sr., Denise Durham, Troy Durham Sr., Steven Durham, Gail Buck, Ramonda Bell, Jamie Durham, and Jason Durham; 9 grandchildren; Sidney Dillback, Bailey Post, Bryant Post, Brenna Anderson, Dwayne Anderson Jr, Thea Anderson, Karis Alire, Nolan Tuck, and Isaac Tuck; along with several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
John was a jack-of-all-trades, some would say, with a tough exterior, but had a heart of gold. He loved his family, but more importantly he loved his children.
John’s final resting place will be at Graceland Cemetery & Memorial Park, 1800 St. George Rd., in Valparaiso, Indiana. There will be a visitation from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM held at Graceland Cemetery, Friday, September 7, 2018 with a service to immediately follow.
