John Carlisle went to his heavenly father on August 10th, 2019. John was born in New Orleans, LA on November 23, 1939. At the age of three John and his sister were placed in a great foster home where John stayed until the age of 21, when he joined the Air Force. John retired from the Air Force in 1981 and then worked for the post office for 20 years. There are so many nice things to say about John but to quote a friend, “He loved everyone and was always willing to help others. Not a selfish bone in his body. A wonderful role model for us all. Heaven’s Angels Are Rejoicing.” What a wonderful tribute to a wonderful man.
