John S Boone II

September 15, 1949 ~ October 6, 2020 (age 71)


John S. Boone II, a child of God and resident of Mineola, TX, stepped over into glory, unexpectedly, on October 6, 2020 at the age of 71. John is survived by his brother, Daniel Boone of Tatum, TX; his nephew, James Boone and his wife Lucy Boone of Tatum, TX; Niece, Denyse Blasdel and her husband Brady Blasdel of Dublin; CA, Nephew Anthony Boone and his wife Kristi Boone of Kilgore, TX. John had several great nephews and two great nieces; Ethan Blasdel, Carter Boone, Caleb Blasdel, Hollie Boone, Natalie Boone and Aaron Blasdel. He is preceded in death by his parents, John S. Boone Sr and Mary Boone of Carthage, TX. In his lifetime John wore many hats. He spent time in Shelby county in the late 70's and early 80's as a Texas Highway Patrolman. He was a trained machinist, a licensed Aircraft Mechanic, received a degree in mechanical engineering and later served on the Texas State Solar Energy Board. He was a graduate of both Letourneau College and Texas State Technical College. He was a nerd if there ever was one. So smart it hurt. He has a mind for invention and envisioned things that would come to pass long before they even existed. John was always keen to teach others about the things he had learned. He taught many young people about solar energy, Ham Radio, computers and all things mechanical. In his younger years, he was a rolling stone and never stayed put long. He tried to never miss an opportunity for a meal with family or friends. He was a dreamer and that caused some to misunderstand him including his own family. He never let that stop him from chasing his dreams. John loved the Lord and had a passion for Mission work. He has spent his last year's building communication modules for missionaries that were solar powered and equipped with Ham Radio equipment so that they could stay in touch with the world. John believed in missionary work to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. He didn't die with much money to his name and some call him a fool for that. But John died rich in treasures that thieves, moths and rust cannot destroy. He will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him. A funeral service is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on October 31, 2020 at the John's Home church. The Name of the Church is: HIS CHURCH 1916 FM 1255 Grand Saline, TX 75140. Pastor Don Fleming of HIS CHURCH will officiate. Flowers, donations and condolences may be offered at 200 Clements Cir Tatum, TX 75691.
