Born on December 6, 1968, in Columbia, Tennessee John was the son of the late Judy Jones Isabell Whitley and Stanley Isabell.
John departed this life July 21, 2021, at Southern Tennessee Regional Health System in Lawrenceburg with his wife, Marian, by his side, as she has been for their nine years and four months marriage.
John was an avid sports fan, especially when it came to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Vanderbilt Commodores, and the University of Tennessee, but his wealth of knowledge went beyond those three teams. John loved watching TV as long as it was very old sitcoms, westerns, or sci-fi. Scary movies were only watched if it was a guarantee Marian was going to jump and/or scream.
Along with his wife, John is survived by their cat, Duck; father/mother-in-law: Leon and Mary Ann Patterson; brothers/sisters-in-law: Marty and Shelley Patterson (Gabe, Nate, Bette, and Molly), Robert and Amy Patterson (Lily Kate and Brooks); aunt: Jo Ann Jones (Michelle Martin). John was preceded in death by his parents, a sister, Tina, and his favorite uncle, Bobby Jones.
