On Saturday, December 4th,2021, John L. Muse, loving husband and father of eight, passed away at Turkey Creek Tennova Hospital at the age of 66. He was surrounded by his devoted family and friends.

John was born to Richard and Adaline Muse at Jellico Hospital. He was the youngest of 11 children. He was a man of many trades such as butcher, mechanic, towe service and heavy equipment operator. He was a tried-and-true work horse. He had all the callouses to stand behind it. 

He was known for his quick wit and aggravating pranks. He was an ad vide fisherman. He was a compassionate man, who hated to see others do without. He had a heart the size of the mountains he loved. 

He had a special vision he wanted to do before he passed. He called and arranged a special cake be made with his Barbie (his wife) sitting on the top of the cake for her birthday and their anniversary. I think she has the right to know of his plan. He loved her with all his heart!
