John "Big" Braziel
‘Big’ John Braziel, age 52, passed away on June 22, 2018 in Joplin MO.John was born in Bakersfield, CA to his Father James Braziel and Beloved mother Ruth Lindsey. He lived in CA for most of his life, and moved to Missouri in 2014 to be closer to family. John did lots of things in his lifetime, from firefighter to working in the medical field, to helping out at the church. Wherever he worked, he was helping someone as the title Big John comes mostly from the size of his heart! (And maybe his height).Most of all he was the happiest either sitting on a dock, or in a boat fishing. Family and friends are invited to join in the celebration of the life of Big John, Monday June the 25th 2018 6-7 pm, at Life Church of Carthage MO. Instead of flowers, the family would like to encourage you to take time with each other and go fishing this summer. We hope that ‘Big’ John, his mother, & his wife Jeannie are now standing on the shores of a big beautiful lake fishing! Cards and monetary donations will be excepted at the Celebration of Life on Monday 6-7 pm.
