Robinson Dr., with burial following at Waco Memorial Park. In accordance with current regulations, seating is limited, face coverings and social distancing is required.

John was born to parents John Monroe Sr. and Marjorie Reeves, on February 19, 1946 in Houma, La. He graduated from Irving High School and received a certificate from Local Union 100 Plumbers and Steamfitters and worked as a Pipe Fitter traveling all over Texas until he retired.

He married Deana, the love of his life, in 1966, who survives him. John is also survived by daughter, Stacy Jones and husband Jimmy; son, Jeremy Reeves and wife Katrina; as well as his beloved grandchildren, Bailey and Brittani Jones and Jordyn and Gavyn Reeves; sister, Cathy Goodwin “Rhode Island Red” and husband Roy; sister, Mary Ann “Lou Lou” Anderson and husband Ricky; “Adopted” daughter, Tina Rider and grandson Brayden Reeves; two nephews; and a niece.

He was preceded in death by his parents John Monroe Reeves Sr. and Marjorie and his niece Casie.

John was known as “Red” to those that loved him. A quiet gentle soul that always let you know what he was thinking when the time was right. He had a very sentimental heart, loved being outdoors and all animals. His wife of 54 years was the light of his life. He always said he got the best when he got her. He was a devoted husband and father and loved when his little “chitlens” grandchildren were with him.

Deana, even though I did not know John, I always heard wonderful things about him. As you go through this trying time, please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. "Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal. Love leaves a memory that no one can steal." John is now another angel in heaven.

This sweet man was like a dad to me and treated me like his daughter. He was sweet, funny, loving and beyond all that accepting of me without judgement. I am forever blessed our lives were intertwined because my life was better with him in it. I'll miss and love you always dad...xoxo❤
