John was born November 16, 1953, to the late George Henry Sr. and Maudie Mosley in Jackson, MS where he lived his entire life. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend to many. John was the owner and operator of Clinton Body Shop for 43 years.

He was on the board of Society Collision Repair Specialists, one of the founding members of the MS Collision Repair Association and was a Consumer Advocate for the Automotive Repair Industry.
John was a graduate of Crystal Springs High School, class of 1971. He has been married to the love of his life, Carolyn, for 48 years. He was a member of Pocahontas Baptist Church. He was an entrepreneur, supporter of veterans, and had a deep love for aviation and plane restoration. Most of all, he was a true servant. He was the most hard working, generous, selfless, kind, and trustworthy person you would ever have the pleasure to meet. To know him was to love him. He touched the lives of so many and was always ready to fight for what was right. He was one of a kind; and one couldn’t help but admire his focus, energy and drive. “Blue skies and tailwinds”
