John B. Haddock of Saint Charles, MO, passed away at the age of 96 on Monday, May 13, 2019. Loving husband of 66 years to Betty Haddock; beloved son of the late Jesse and Maggie Haddock; devoted father of Suzanne (Larry) Thompson; dearest brother of the late Grady (Frances) Haddock, the late Ruth (Virgil) Hale, and the late Euthema (Carson) Deaton; dear uncle, cousin, and friend to many.
John served proudly in the U.S. Army during WWII. He had a successful career in sales with the railroad industry for over 37 years, and he retired from Norfolk Southern Railroad. He was a devoted man of faith and a deacon in the Baptist church for many years. He volunteered and played the organ for more than 30 years.
John loved music and enjoyed listening to hymns. After he retired, he played piano at nursing homes and retirement communities. He had a special place in his heart for nature and he took great pride and care in making sure his flowers and landscaping were always in fine shape. He always stayed active and had a seemingly endless amount of energy to take his bicycle out on daytrips. John was dearly loved and will missed by all who knew him.
Memorial contributions may be made in John’s name to Lutheran Senior Services Hospice Care.
