John JD DePriest Memorial

JD made an impact on the lives of everyone who ever knew him. He was a devoted husband, father, and friend. He proudly served his country as a Naval Aircrewman for 21 years, building lifelong friendships with his fellow shipmates.

He was currently working as a Systems Engineer at Geocent in New Orleans. He loved his job and his coworkers. John was also a HUGE fan of the Philadelphia Flyers, and of AC/DC.

John’s life tragically ended on May 1st. His death left his family and friends in a deep state of grief and disbelief.

His family, now left behind, is struggling to cope in his sudden absence. Bills are piling up, and a memorial must be arranged, held, and paid for.

We, his family, are asking for your help today. Anything you can contribute would help us to celebrate John's memory and keep us going during this most difficult time.

We completely understand that not everyone is in a position to donate, but please share the campaign with everyone you can – getting the word out is just as important as donating.

Thank you all for your help and prayers. Your love and support will never be forgotten.
