Mr. Echols was a true patriot joining the Army at age 17 during WW2 serving as a ball turret gunner on over two dozen missions. He was one of the most positive people and strongest Christians I have ever known a true friend.
John Echols will always be remembered as a proud Veteran who served his country with honor and pride. He loved his Country, his Family and old cars.
His was a full life and he leaves behind a grateful Nation and friends who will cherish his friendship.
