John Williams Shrader
John Williams Shrader, age 72, passed away Thursday, October 21, 2021 in Summertown, TN.
He was born on March 24, 1949 to the late Frank Gilbert and Ruby Lee Shrader in Lawrenceburg, TN. He married the love of his life, Joan Plunkett, on December 5, 1977. Shortly after they expanded their family by having a girl and two boys. As their children grew up and had their own children, it doubled their family in size, overjoying John with the precious gift of his grandchildren. John was a generous and selfless man. He looked out for his family and made sure they never went without. Family was the number one thing in life that he cherished the most.
John spent most of his life working as a truck driver for Sharp Transport for over 20 years, until his health led him to spend more time at home and with his family. You could always find John cheering on the Kentucky Wildcats basketball team and the New York Yankees baseball team. When he was outdoors you would find him enjoying the scenery, shooting his guns on their beautiful property, and riding on his Harleys.
He is survived by his loving wife: Joann Shrader; daughter: Deidrea (Jason) Robbins; sons: Rick Shrader and Michael (Kimberly) Shrader; grandchildren: Jansen Robbins, Dakota Robbins, Hunter Robbins, Rebecka Robbins, Weston Robbins, Hailey “Juice” Shrader, Matt Shrader, Addyson Shrader, Jonathan Shrader, Joshua Shrader, and Emily Shrader.
