John was born on November 24, 1964 in Chile, South America to James and Betty Sapp Whaley. John was a devoted husband, father, brother and friend to many. He was a career Electrician, exemplifying dependability and knowledge in his work. John pursued his compassion for serving the Lord by attending Vintage Bible College and shared his ministry with his church, local prisons and nursing homes.
