John had 40 years of experience in the industrial pipe field. John’s personality allowed him to get along with everyone, stranger, and friend alike. His enjoyment came from his family, especially his children’s’ and grandchildren’s’ activities. He thoroughly enjoyed the Montana outdoors with his friends and family. His love of music led him to playing guitar in a Christian band.
John was preceded in death by his parents and his brother (Larry). He is survived by his wife Sharon, his two children John M. (Pam) and Tricia D. Korcheck (Kevin) and grandchildren John William Pearson and Jordan Nicole Pearson.
A graveside service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 8, 2020 at Sunset Memorial Gardens. The family will receive friends at Smith Downtown Chapel, 925 S. 27th Street, from 12:00 to 3:00 following the graveside service. Condolences may be shared at www.smithfuneralchapels.com.
