John Goucher
 March 25, 2023

Our son John came home from the hospital this afternoon (Saturday March 25, 2023). His dad brought him home. He was doing well. He had a nice talk with his dad.

He has had quite a few heart issues from the past and struggled to breathe at times. He went over to a neighbor to chat with him. They were laughing and he was talking about different things including himself flirting with the nurses at the hospital. He reached for his chest and had a massive heart attack.

Fred and the friend, after calling 911, tried to resuscitate him. He was gone. He was 46 years old.

John lived on our property. He had his own little farm out here. Loved his animals. Two baby goats were born this last week, a boy and a girl. Cute. We are sad. I wished I could have seen him yesterday before he died, but We knew we would probably outlive him, though you still never know. I will really miss him. So many good memories, though he could be such a pain.

He had a really rough life, much brought on himself. But he would do anything for you, never stopping going and helping people. Just didn't want to clean up his own room. HAHA! He loved having breakfast with us and helped me with anything I would ask him to. He could do anything. He was a very creative kid. Though, with ADHD, some projects didn't get finished.....

We appreciate your prayers. We will have him cremated and have a Celebration of His Life here at our home. I will keep you updated when we know when we will have the Celebration of his life. As ornery as he was he had given his heart to Jesus. He is in loving arms for sure now!

A Celebration of John's life will be on Sunday, May 7, 2023, 2:00 - 7:00 PM, at our home:
1105 East 267th Street
Cleveland, Missouri

We will have pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans and others bring whatever...
