John Denton Reese

John Denton Reese passed away June 27, 2022 in Ogden, Utah of cancer.  He was born June 18, 1966 in Las Vegas, Nevada to Jaydee Reese and Brenda Lee Millard Reese.   On September 17, 2000 he married Kirsten Boone.  John has a son, Ryan Reese and two stepdaughters; Rainey Nunez and Tisha Pollard.  

John earned his CDL in 2004 and drove over the road for a few years.  Kirsten was very excited to go with him.

John was a mechanic with Clinton City. He was very meticulous in his work and wanted everything done according to the book.  He was awarded numerous certifications including being OSHA30 certified.  He was very proud of obtaining that certification in a short amount of time.

He loved classic muscle cars. He owned a 1970 Dodge Dart that he was very proud of.  For many years he drove a 1974 Dodge Ram pickup because he thought the old trucks were so much better than new ones.  With his mechanical knowledge he was able to keep it running for many years past its expiration date.

John loved classic TV shows.  He loved M.A.S.H.  He was a history buff and enjoyed watching WWII movies.  He could tell you anything you wanted to know about history.  

John especially loved the Seattle Seahawks.  

John is survived by his mother and step-father, Ron Russell; his son, Ryan; a sister, Karalee Weaver; a brother, Jason Reese; his sister-in-law Charee Clark and many cousins, nieces, nephews and grandchildren.  

He is preceded in death by his wife Kirsten Boone and his father Jaydee Reese.

There will be a Memorial Service to John on July 15, 2022 from 6-8 p.m. at Serenicare Funeral Home, 2281 S. West Temple, SLC, UT 84115.
