JOHN HENRY BOLIN, JR., passed away Thursday, March 28, 2019, at home peacefully surrounded by family. John put up a courageous fight against cancer. He was born on December 14, 1950 in Houston, Texas to John Henry Bolin, Sr. and Delfrieda Bolin. He was raised in Montgomery, Texas where he loved playing football with the Montgomery Bears during his high school years. John graduated from Montgomery High School in 1970. He then served four years in the United States Air Force and was honorable discharged in 1974. After returning from the service, he eventually returned to live in Montgomery, Texas where he married the love of his life and soulmate Susan Nutter Bolin on October 20, 1979.

John will always be remembered as never meeting a stranger and always willing to help someone whether he knew them or not. He made many friends during his lifetime and never turned anyone that needed help. John could fix or make anything for himself or for a friend. He was always on the lookout for a tool that he didn’t have. He loved meeting once a month for lunch with the Montgomery “Old” Bears football players.

Since it has been a week since John's passing, I never knew that I could feel this lonely. He left a big hole in my heart. When we first met, John's good nature and wonderful smile caught me by surprise. He was the only man that made me laugh on our first date. Everything on our property and in our house reminds me of our time together. RIP John

I can’t remember how I met John and Susan! I just know we were all young and healthy! But, even though I moved away, and I’ve went in a thousand different directions , those two were my friends. We had a common Love of horses, and my favorite memories are of being at their place, in their barn.
RIP John ! May God Bless your family at this time off loss.
