Obituary for John Wesley Counts

John passed away on May 20, 2019 survived by his family. He will be remembered most for his devotion to his wife and family. John was born in Ventura, CA on August 12, 1941 to Gay and Minnie Counts. His family moved to Lakeview, OR in 1948. John moved to Medford, OR in 1960 to pursue a career in carpentry. John was proud to be a lifetime member of the carpenters union. John spent many weekends driving back and forth to Lakeview, OR to build his parents and brother Jay’s homes. A signature of his devotion to his family.
John enjoyed traveling, sports, bowling, woodworking, and biking. He was an avid 49er fan. John rode his bike almost everyday. Unfortunately, on May 20, 2019 this activity took his life through an unfortunate accident.
John “Gramps” never missed an event for his grandchildren whom he loved, unconditionally. He loved watching them play soccer, football, swimming, baseball, and march in the band. He was very proud of all of them. He was most recently proud of becoming a great grandpa.
John volunteered weekly at the Mormon pantry as devotion and giving back were important to him.
John and Lois shared special memories traveling together. They traveled through Europe, the United States and took several cruises throughout the world.
John is survived by his wife, Lois Counts; his children, Kevin Counts, Debbie Counts-Tabor, Ronnie Dillon and Tina Qualls; daughters-in-law, Barbara Counts, Becky Dillon and CJ Tabor; son-in-law, Bart Qualls; his grandchildren and great-grandchild; two brothers; nieces and nephews. John will be greatly missed by his family.
The family is having a gathering to celebrate John “Gramps” on June 1, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at Hanley Farms 1053 Hanley Rd. Central Point, OR. There will be a toast for John at 6:45 pm.
In lieu of flowers a memorial donation can be made to the North Medford High School Band at NMHS 1900 N. Keene Way Drive, Medford, OR.
The family would like to extend gratitude to the amazing and compassionate nurses, physicians and staff in the ICU at RRMC. They provided extraordinary care for John and his family during this difficult time. A special thank you to the crew at fire district #3.
