John had a large family lineage that was cheated out of knowing because of unfortunate circumstances that as a young child he had no control of and as an adult and had no knowledge of how to fix it. Unbeknown to him, he had a sister and a cousin, David Wayne Church, who had been trying to locate him for several years without any success. His life ended before all parties involved were able to know the love and joy they could have enjoyed. Only through his death and hours of research was his whole family circle completed.
