Obituary for John David Owen

John “David” Owen “Coach”
12/30/1951-7/16/2018

John “David” Owen, 66, of Bartlett, TN after a 1-1/2-year battle with cancer, went to be with the Lord on July 16, 2018.

David was born on December 30, 1951 to William Owen and Mary Moore in Jackson, TN. He was a graduate of Millington High School and also was a graduate of Union University where he earned his teaching certificate. He was also a proud Navy veteran. He retired from the Shelby County School System where he taught Algebra and coached baseball, softball and basketball for over 32 years. He loved coaching and participating in sports but what he enjoyed most was making memories with his wife, children and grandchildren. He was a dedicated member of Christ Church in Bartlett and considered it an honor to serve the Lord there.


David is survived by the love of his life, his wife of nineteen years, Lynn; his brother Joseph Owen of Atoka TN; his children and step children, Michael of Columbia, TN, Matthew (Crystal) of Arlington, TN, Becca Brown (Hayden) of Arlington, TN, Michelle Thomas (Stephen) of Jackson, TN, Kelli Hurdle(Bubba) of Brighton, TN and Jill Luna(Craig) of Bartlett, TN. He also leaves 11 grandchildren, Haley, Addison, Peyton, Bailey, Davis, Daxton, Tucker, Dannon, Nick, Nicolette and Myra.
