He attended St. Richard Catholic School and graduated from Klein High School in Spring, Texas. He attended San Antonio College and graduated from the University of Texas in San Antonio with a degree in Political Science. He then spent a year at Dallas Theological Seminary. John’s faithful led life was full of many adventures. One of his most treasured memories was a mission trip to Brazil. John loved to travel and was fiercely independent. His determination, courage, and love of the Lord was an inspiration to all who knew him. He had a passion for sharing God’s words and spoke to many groups and churches. John never let any challenge stand in his way. He will be terribly missed. John is survived by his parents, BJ and Lucky; brother, Chris and his wife, Laurie Henley Chaplain; nephews, Cooper and Noah Chaplain; and numerous aunt, uncles, and cousins that he loved dearly.
