John was born in Rochester, MN on June 14, 1961 to Harold W and Susan Emmett Milner (later divorced). He was named for his grandfathers. He grew up in McLean, VA, was active in scouting, becoming an Eagle Scout. He attended BYU and Weber State. He served a mission in Costa Rica and Panama and held various positions in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. His favorite job was teaching skiing at Deer Valley Resort.
Throughout his life everyone knew him for his ever-present smile and his sweet and loving disposition. His best childhood friend said of John, "He was one of the sweetest, kindest, most sensitive friends one could ever have."
John's last year of declining health was made bearable by the incredible care and devotion of his beloved wife, Tiffani. He loved her unconditionally and would have made a wonderful dad to their infant daughter, Audrey Grace, who preceded him in death.

He is also survived by stepsisters, Suzanne Sackas, Jane Riley, Mary Ann Empey, Julianne Parkinson and Katherine Parkinson.
