John Kerry Mecham, went back to his heavenly home on Sunday, December 18, 2022 on his 82nd birthday.

He was born on December 18th, 1940 to Donald Miller Mecham and Melissa Vilma Montgomery Mecham Tanner in Yost Utah. He was raised by his mom and his step father Max V Tanner after his dad, Donald, was killed in a hunting accident when John was a small child.

John has taken his family on so many adventures through many states. There is not enough room on these pages to list them all.

He graduated from Box Elder High School and various trade schools. He was a ranch hand, ranch manager, level II structural radiologist, journeyman electrician, mechanic, potter, miner, defender of the less fortunate, story teller and many more things.

John enjoyed hunting, trapping, pottery, rock hunting, drawing, playing guitar and passing his knowledge of all things true or imagined on to his kids and grandkids. He enjoyed creating and reimagining new contraptions.

He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where he held many callings throughout his life.
