John lætur eftir sig eiginkonu sína Anglelu til 31 árs, ogsynina Alexander og John David Witherspoon.
So…my Dad died today & honestly I’m not sure how to feel. I’m sad, but I’m also happy 4 all the great times we had together. We’d roast each other like homies more than Father & Son, and I really liked that. He was my best friend & my idol.
Love U Dad…I’ll miss u.
