John Eddie Paxton was born on January 2,1931, to Eddie and Florence Paxton.
John was uncle to a host of nieces and nephews as well as great nieces and nephews. Uncle had a very witty sense of humor as he was a real easy-going person who loved cookies. He enjoyed watching gospel ministry which led him to recall how he was taught the power of prayer as a young man. Uncle was a deacon at his former church in Milwaukee. Oftentimes I would hear uncle in his room praising, singing and praying.
