John Stringer

Obituary Date: Monday, April 20, 2020

Mr. John Stringer, age 89, of Gainesville, passed away Monday, April 20, 2020.

Mr. Stringer was born in Hall County to the late Charlie Washington and Venie Peck Stringer.  In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by wife, Charlotte Stringer; siblings, Ione Stringer, Mary Lou Stringer, Verdelle Stringer Chambers, Jim Stringer, Sallie Mae Stringer Collins, Tom Stringer, Winston Stringer, Charles Stringer, and Idessa Stringer Tankersley.

He loved being outdoors, gardening and tending to his honeybees.  He had a soft spot for animals of all kinds, making sure to feed the birds every morning.  He was known for his love of holiday decorating and baking, often sharing his creations with family and friends. 

He began playing the piano in church at an early age, loved singing hymns and continued to play the organ at White Creek Baptist Church until his passing.  He was a true jack-of-all-trades and spent his life taking care of his family.  He loved God and his family with all of his heart and was quick to share how blessed he was.  While he will be deeply missed, his family is comforted by knowing that he has joined Nana in the Heavenly Choir.
