John Michael Babb, 77, of Glenwood, formerly of North Platte, Neb., passed away June 6, 2018, in Omaha. He was born on March 19, 1941, in Falls City, Neb. to John Albert and Virginia Annette (Hall) Babb.
John was united in marriage to Janett G. Fourtner on Nov. 23, 1962, in North Platte, Neb. To this union two daughters were born, Kristine and Cindi. John was employed with Union Pacific as a Special Projects Engineering Designer. He was a master builder of motorcycles, woodworking projects and building two additions on to his home. He and Jan enjoyed hosting many bon fires and gatherings at their home through the years, so it seemed fitting to remember John to share memories together with family and friends.
Preceding John in passing were his parents. Survivors include his wife Janett Babb of Glenwood; daughters, Kristine (Daniel) Duffy of Glenwood; Cindi Babb of Pacific Junction; grandchildren, Michelle Cowles, David Babb, Jennifer Cowles and Katie Cowles; sister, Jane (Tom) Pappas of Idaho Falls, Idaho; brother-in-law Rich (Jeannie) Fourtner, of North Platte, Neb.; extended relatives and friends.
Friends are invited to remember John on Saturday, June 16, 2018, at 3 p.m. at the Babb family home, 54186 222nd Street, Glenwood.
Interment to be held at a later date.
