John Christopher Paredez, age 55, of Beaumont, Texas passed away on Saturday February 29, 2020.

John was born in Beaumont in 1964 and attended Kelly Monseigneur HS. One day, when he was riding his bike as a teenager, he met Brenda Gail Hayes. They fell in love and married at the age of 23 in 1987. Two years later they had their first daughter, Jade, and another two years later their second daughter, Jewels, was born.

John was a man that loved life and had many friends. He did not care what your past was or the mistakes you made, he only cared if you were having a good time. When John and Brenda’s two daughter were little, his favorite thing to do was take them on nature hikes and encourage their curiosity. Later in life, John had two more children, Juliana and Corbin, that he loved and spent every moment he could with them.

John is survived by his daughters Jade Paredez of Spring, Texas, Jewels Day and husband Jacob of Granite Falls, Washington, and Juliana Davis of Buna, Texas; his son Corbin Davis of Buna, Texas; and his brother Jude Paredez and wife Katherine of Beaumont, Texas.

John was preceded in death by his wife Brenda Gail Hayes Paredez and his parents, Paul Paredez and Eva Paredez.

I was fortunate to be able to hire John while working for Knife River. John was one of the most respectful polite guys you would meet. Every time I seen John out and about he still remembered me and we would spend some time talking about work and life. Honored to have known this hardworking man! RIP Paredez

John, Brenda, Jade and Jewels came to visit me in Dallas after I had Bryce. Bryce was about two months old at the time. John was sitting in a chair in the living room holding Bryce. I asked John if he could check and see if Bryce had a dirty diaper. Most people would pull the back of the diaper and look in the diaper. Not John! He stuck his finger into the diaper around the leg area. When he pulled his finger out he had shit all over his finger. He just said calmly yep. I was in shock what he did, but not surprised. He was always doing silly things like that.

I’ve know John since about 1987. I have many wonderful memories of him. He will be missed by many.
