John was a farmer all his life, and took over the running of the family farm at age 14, when his father passed away. At a very young age, he worked very hard to support his mother and the siblings that were still home. He also worked in construction, working at Tievoli Hills, Dundee, Pike County Memorial Hospital, and constructing the new Highway 54 by-pass at Louisiana. After he and Peggy married, they moved to Dover, Missouri. At that time, John purchased a John Deere tractor to use around the farm along with his beloved horses. The family rented and resided at 3 different farms before finally purchasing a farm in rural Frankford, where he and Peggy still resided. In John’s pastime, he enjoyed hunting quail, coon, rabbits, and squirrel. He loved his friends and family, and always enjoyed spending time with them. He also loved his animals, horses, and tractors. John was a very honest and trustworthy man, who never met a stranger. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need, though he never liked to ask for help himself. Pallbearers will be Lloyd Hubert Jr., Larry Pederson, Ralph Penrod, Justin Begley, Grant Gollaher, and Rick Hubert. Honorary pallbearers will be Paul Hill, and great- grandchildren: Aylee Love (Charles Throndson), Blaine Love (Kinsley Block), Skyler Love (Lexi Wolfe), Shyanne Begley (Isaac Chaney), Shawnee Begley (John Rimmer), Shaylynn Begley, Dakoda Begley, Dennon Wayne White, Kishena White, Perrin White, and great-great-grandchild, Chase Throndson.
