In Memory of John E Overstreet

Our beloved, goofy, hard working, humble, loving John was killed in a tragic work accident on Wednesday, March 21st 2018. He was only 48 years old. 

He leaves behind his wife, his parents, siblings, family and a multitude of friends, but most heartbreaking is that he leaves behind 4 incredible children who are 20, 19, 18,16. We want to ease the financial burden that comes with losing someone so suddenly. Someone who worked hard every day of his life to be sure his family had what they needed day by day. 

This memorial fund will help to take care of his family, from health insurance to monthly expenses, the bases need to be covered. Additionally, he dreamed that his children would get to continue their educations and was working hard to help make this happen. They are his legacy and this is a chance to support them in incredible ways. Any donation, no matter how small is greatly appreciated. Although broken, we thank you with all of our hearts.

Press release:


Maybe he left your playlist more 80's than he found it, sent you a text reminding you that you matter, gave you a hug that couldn't be matched, or just made you laugh. Or maybe you never got to meet him. But the world was certainly better for the time he was here. We love you John.
