John K. Ferguson
John K. Ferguson, 65, of Wells, NY, passed away suddenly Thursday, July 2, 2020.
He was born August 15, 1954, in Gloversville, NY, the son of Marian Ferguson and the late Elwyn Ferguson. John is a graduate of Northville Central School and went directly into the workforce as an avid logger for many years. He was employed for the last five years with Miller’s Ready Mix Concrete & Block. John enjoyed working at Miller’s and Steve, Pam and crew hold a special place in his heart. John enjoyed the simple pleasures in life: his two beloved dogs, Bonnie and Bailey, hunting, spending time with his family and friends and he especially enjoyed his nights at the Four Corners Diner meeting up with his dinner crew for many jokes and laughs.
John is survived by his loving daughter, Tammy (Chad) Saddlemire; and two grandchildren, Timothy and Madysen Saddlemire; his mother, Marian (Dewey) Ferguson; his brothers, Elwyn (Archie) Ferguson, Joel (Denise) Ferguson, Douglas (Marg) Ferguson, Gregory Ferguson; and sisters, Deborah (George) Reynolds and Denise Milnyczuk; his aunt, Helen Ferguson; along with several nieces, nephews and cousins.
He was predeceased by his father, Elwyn Ferguson; loving wife, Cathy Ferguson, whom he married on July 21, 1973; and his son, Eric Ferguson; sisters, Carol Bowers and Mary Ferguson; nephews, Chad Ferguson, Jeffrey Edwards, Justin Milnyczuk, Jamie Nichols; and niece, Jessica Marth.
Anyone that knows John, know his go-to words are ain’t that awful, ain’t that rotten and ain’t that stupid and we will all miss hearing those words every day, along with his nightly telephone calls he made to many of his family and friends.
Calling hours will be held on Wednesday, July 8, at the Northville Funeral Home from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. A graveside service will be held at the Algonquin Cemetery, Griffin Road, Wells, NY at 11 a.m, on Thursday, July 9.
