John loved spending time at home with his family.
He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Lucy (Phenicie). Also surviving are a brother, Michael Seefried of Franklin and a sister, Patricia King of Franklin.
In addition to his wife and siblings, he is survived by three daughters: Stephanie Seefried (and significant other Marc Jennings), Christina Lane (and husband David Lane), and Jacqueline Hinkle (and husband Jordan Hinkle). He is also survived by seven grandchildren who were his joy: Shawn Tarr (and fiancé Alexis McLeod), Abigail Tarr, Emma & Ashlyn Gibbs, and Trenity, Max, and Nevaeh Lane, and also his favorite grandpuppy, Maxwell Bentley.
John proudly served his country in the United States Marine Corps in 1968 and then reenlisted with the United States Navy in 1973. He had hoped to join each branch of the military.
