Obituary of John W. Sloan

John W. Sloan, 72, of Milford, PA passed away Thursday, April 29, 2021 at home. He was a retired mechanic, manufacturing auto parts for Teamsters Local 641. John, aka: ‘Big John’, ‘Johnny Bee’ had a zest for life. He was always drawn to music and in the early years was part of the bluegrass band ‘Jersey Ridge Runners’. John was a devoted Bee Keeper and had a fond love for wildlife and nature. His attitude on life was that of pride, he would often turn away help from others, but would be there for everyone and anyone else.  He loved his family more than anything, he was our neighbor, he was a friend, he shared stories and was a helping hand. He will be missed greatly by those who knew him.


The son of the late William and Elsie (Ackland) Sloan, he was born on January 28, 1949 in Jersey City, NJ. 


John leaves behind his wife, Nancy (Cameron) Sloan; children, Jesse Sloan and his wife Jami, Cory Sloan and his wife Jen and Marcy Williams and her husband Landon; grandchildren, Kiley, Ashley, Jacinda, Eisley and Marley and his sister, Patricia Jiosi and Mary Kaplan.
