John Akinloye Jr. 10/22/1982 – 2/20/2013

John Akinloye Jr. from Burnet Tx and resident of San Marcos passed away on February 20, 2013. He is survived by his Mother Cynthia Akinloye-Walser and husband Bill (Burnet); Father John Akinloye Sr. (Houston); Sister Marian Akinloye-Ennis and husband Tim (New York); Brother Joseph Smith, wife Nikki and nephew Phaeton (Cedar Park).

After graduating from Burnet High School in 2001, John received a track and field scholarship to Texas State University (SWT) where he won multiple conference championships. He earned a Bachelors degree in Exercise Sports Science in 2006 and later a Masters in Education in 2010.

John was a true renaissance man. He played the piano, harmonica, tuba, trumpet, bass and lead guitar, and drums. He was a music composer, writer, artist and was fluent in Spanish. John even played semi-pro football for the Corpus Christi Sharks arena football team in 2007. He loved hunting, fishing, barbequing and spending time with friends and family. He loved the Dallas Cowboys, the Burnet Bulldogs and most of all his Texas State Bobcats.

His passion was his band the Peace Pipe Prophets where he entertained crowds in San Marcos and Austin as the lead guitarist. John’s relentless pursuit of success was unmatched; he could do anything he set his mind to which is evident in his life resume. He made a positive impact on the lives of everyone who had the privilege to know him and he will never be forgotten. ROCK HARD YOUNG MAN FROM NOW AND THROUGHOUT ETERNITY!!

Well John…I still can't believe you're gone. I keep replaying Wednesday night in my mind and still wake up every day hoping that is was all a bad dream. Words can't explain the emptiness that we are feeling inside. It gives me peace knowing that you are in a better place and standing beside the Big Man above watching over us.
It's overwhelmingly amazing to see the number of people's lives that you impacted within your 30 short years with us. Joseph, Phaeton and I are going to miss you terribly… as well as everyone else. We will never forget the memories that you have left us with, your smile, your laughter, your MUSIC, your kindness and your overall happiness and love that you have for everyone. Out of the 13+ years that I have known you, I never saw you mad or upset. This world would be a better place if only everyone had just an nth of the heart and soul you had. I feel very lucky and privileged to have had you in my life as a brother and an Uncle to Phaeton! I know that you will always live on within our hearts and watch over and protect us. Joseph and I will continue to be proud of you and brag on you for all of your accomplishments…but most of all, we will continue to LOVE YOU and MISS YOU FOREVER! You are now OUR ANGEL!

From my family, we are truly saddened of your loss. God Bless Each of you.

The times we spent in that tiny little office will never be forgot. Everyone who knew you is better for it. I know I am! Thank you for putting me in my place when I needed it and having my back because you knew I had yours. You are someone I admired and aspired to be more like. Love you brother!

John left a positive imprint on everyone he came in contact with. His smile, his laugh, his cool, calm, and collected nature. The world seems dimmer without him in it. He is alive and well in our memories. John, you set the bar high for the rest of us. What a legacy! May we all be so fortunate to touch the lives of others as you have. May we all have the same courage to pursue our dreams. My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of this remarkable man.

"Joe, Words, however kind,
can't mend your heartache:
but those who care and
share your loss wish you
comfort and peace of mind.
May you find strength
in the love of family
and in the warm embrace
of friends.
