Obituary: John Sayles, 42, of Ludington.

John Sayles, 42, of Ludington, passed away on Thursday, Aug. 5, 2021.

John was born on April 12, 1979, the son of Donald and Christine (Saunders) Sayles. He was raised in Flint and attended Davison High School. On April 18, 2001, he married his perfect partner for life, Melissa Moorman, and they started their family with three beautiful children. John was a dedicated assistant line lead at House of Flavors and a member of Cornerstone Baptist Church.

John loved God with all of his heart and allowed the Lord’s light to shine through him. He was always encouraging others and was very goofy, as he enjoyed making people laugh. Many called him “Big John” and wherever he was, everyone was sure to be having fun. John enjoyed biking, hiking, and weight training. He loved camping and boating and anything else that allowed him to spend time with his family.

John is survived by his wife of 20 years, Melissa Sayles; children, Alyssa, John T., and Gideon Sayles; mother, Christine Sayles; brothers, Joe and Mike Sayles; sisters, Rebekah (Doug) Gregory and Angela Sayles; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

John’s father, Donald Sayles, preceded him in death.
