John C. Crane



John C. Crane, 52, of Seymour, was surrounded by his loving family and friends at his home when he went to be with God on Monday, January 15, 2018. He was born January 12, 1966 in Connersville, IN to Charles and Patricia (Woodruff) Crane, both deceased.

John married the love of his life Jackie D. McClintock on September 24, 2016, with a beautiful beach wedding in Ormond By the Sea, Florida.

He is survived by his wife Jackie; a huge blended family including children, Nevada Crane, Olivia Newkirk, Jamie (Jami) Kiel and Taylor Newkirk; grandchildren, Charlee Kiel, Sampson Newkirk and Jude Hackman; brothers, Larry (Lisa) Crane and Barry (Amber) Crane; sister, Margie (Phil) Trimpe; aunts, Joan Hines, Carol (Kenny) Taskey, Marilyn Norris and Dottie (Don) Acton; nieces and nephews, Brad (Kate) Trimpe, Matt Trimpe, Jessica (Brian) Powell, Mickayla Crane, Alyce Crane, Matt, Jamie and Nick Birch. After the beautiful wedding in 2016, John gained Jackie’s loving family including parents, Jack and Lora McClintock; siblings, Leslie Reinhart (Ron Gregory) and Troy (Sarah) McClintock; aunts, Margie (Bobby) Troxell, and Belva (Eric) Sage; uncle, Jerry (Mary) McClintock; nephews, Matthew (Lisa) Reinhart, Jeremy Reinhart, Troy McCoy, and Jack McClintock; nieces, Macy (Michael) Moore, Maddison McCoy, Carly McCoy, Lily McClintock, and Abbie Taylor; as well as several cousins, great-nieces and nephews.

John was passionate about his work. He began working at Farm Bureau Insurance in 1989. He loved assisting his amazing clients with their insurance needs. John also shared his wife Jackie’s passion for helping people suffering with addiction. He was always volunteering with her and her coworkers at the Scott County Health Department and loved talking to their clients without ever passing any judgment on them.

He was an active member at Peace Lutheran Church where he was part of the praise team. He had a true passion for music. This passion started at an early age as he helped his mom with her music store. He enjoyed playing the drums in many bands. Additional interests included golfing, “choir practice” with friends, vacationing, playing cards, listening to live music, and spending time with friends and family. Family was the most important thing to him and he could not get enough time with them.

John had a huge loving heart, great hugs, and a booming greeting for everyone he interacted with. John had the chance to speak to each of his family members before his passing and let them know he was at peace and wanted each of them to promise to be right with God so he would see them again in Heaven. He was truly one of a kind and will be greatly missed.
