John Bynum was a loving, intelligent, and a hard working man. The motivation he had for life was astounding. Even with age he held onto independence that many can only dream to achieve. He lived a long fulfilling life. From a young man serving our country, to a loving husband/father/grandfather/great grandfather/friend, and a successful business man. He touched the lives of many and will be greatly missed. While I know he was grateful for every moment of life he had I also know he missed his loved ones that he had lost. I hope he has been reunited with all his friends and family that he so very missed. Until we meet again Grandpa, love you forever and always.

John Bynum was a man of honor, integrity, loyalty, dedication, and devotion. He did nothing part way, his hard work was just a part of what made him the man he was.
Everyone who knew him loved him. He had a way of making everyone feel important and valued. If he didn’t speak kindly of you, he didn’t speak of you at all. He was positive in everything he did and he brought so much joy, happiness, and laughter to all those around him.
As gentle as he was to others, he was equally strong and fierce in every goal, every duty, and in every endeavor he ever had. He was a man that has seen unimaginable things but he never let those things harden him. He was a rock you could depend on and an ear to hear and a word to give when that was what you needed. As hard as he worked, even up to his last days, he was never too busy for the people he loved.
Thank you for being the man and example you were to us all. With all the love in my heart, I will miss you. -Julie

My Grandpa Johnny was one of the greatest people in this world and I was lucky enough to call him Grandpa. He lived a life full of love and hard work. He was always looking on the bright side of things, even when things look really bad, he would crack a joke and everyone in the room would be laughing. You could never say "I love you!" without it being a competition, a great one at that. A game that continued on with every visit. Whenever I went to see my grandpa or talked to him on the phone, he always made sure that I knew how special I was to him and I made sure he knew the same. I loved my Grandpa with all my heart. He was an amazing man who loved so many people. He touched so many lives and brought an amazing energy with him. He will be greatly missed by so many, not just family but the people he saw on his daily routines and out on errands. He brought a light with him to ever room and even though he is gone, that light will continue to shine through people who cared for him most through the memories and stories each have with him. The quote "The beautiful iron y is that our loss is another's reunion" has stuck with me through my grief. He always said he was the last one standing out of all of his friends, it makes me smile to know he had one of the greatest reunions in Heaven when he left us. As I hold his memory close to my heart, I can only hope I continue to make him proud, just like I did on my graduation day. I love you Grandpa.
