He was born on May 29, 1988, in Terre Haute to David B. and Karla L. (Keck) Wynn.
John was a 2007 graduate of Linton-Stockton High School and was attending Ivy Tech Community College. He loved martial arts and spending time with his friends. Jack McVickers was his mentor and the McVickers Martial Arts Studio was a great part of his life. He attended Lawton Street Christian Church.
John's lifelong dream and aspiration was to be a police officer. He was on his way to fulfilling that dream. He was working with the Indianapolis Metro Police Department. He was waiting for his 21st birthday at the end of this month. That was his magic number! John saw the good in everyone and had a forgiving heart. He will live in our hearts and memories forever.
