John and Bill

On this day the 20th of June 20th, John Louis Laprairie was born to parents Lucy Dee Wright and “Bill” John Alvis LaPrarie in Ferriday, Louisiana.

Our mom, Nelda, had great admiration for her oldest brother John. “Brother John” as most people refer to him, has served most of his life as a worship pastor in the Toledo, Ohio area.

He and wife Shirley are now enjoying retirement in the warmer climate of Birmingham, Alabama. Their daughter, Danna, with her husband Jeff Brown and son Jackson also reside in the Birmingham area. John and Shirley’s son John Howard and his family (son John, daughters Joanna and Stephanie, and grandchildren) still live in the Toledo, Ohio area.

Happy Birthday Uncle John!!!
