John SYBESMA, was born on June 13, 1921, on a farm near Perkins Corner, Iowa, to Syne and Christina (Broek) Sybesma. He didn't have any purchased toys, but used to play farm with wagons made out of Cornflakes boxes. He attended Perkins Christian Grade School. When he was young he went to Yellowstone in a new Chevy with three others. When they were there he was feeding a bear, and ran out of food. The bear hugged him, crushing him. His friends threw food at the bear and it released its hold on him. On May 10, 1946, John married Jeanette Scholten. They lived on a farm near Perkins. Early in the morning, John would call upstairs for his boys to get up for chores. He usually had to yell more than once. J John would tease his children sometimes saying, "I'll sell you for a nickel and buy an ice cream cone, then eat the ice cream cone!" Some of his children smile when they remember him sitting in the car honking his horn while Jeanette was helping all the children get ready for church. He loved bowling and watching basketball games. He loved the land and enjoyed driving through the country, looking at other farms, and visiting with farmers. John was a supporter of Christian education and his church. He loved his children and grandchildren, and prayed for them all by name every day. John died July 30, 2007.
