John Reardon


Memorial Gathering: 12:00-2:00 pm Saturday, July 15, 2017 at

Riverwood Family Funeral Service with Memorial Service to follow at 2:00 pm.


John Raymond Reardon, 48, of Brookhaven, Mississippi, passed away Sunday, July 9, 2017.


John was born July 7, 1969 in Tupelo, Mississippi, to Glen and Rayceine Reardon.

He attended Brookhaven High School and continued on to receive both a Bachelor’s

of Landscape Architecture and a Masters of Business Administration from Mississippi State University.


John loved to be outdoors, especially if he was floating down the river in a canoe.

John was also a fantastic cook.  One of his favorite places to be was in front of the grill. 

He said that seeing his friends and family smiling and enjoying his food was the

greatest compliment he could ever receive.  John will be remembered most for his charismatic personality,

his tremendous charm, and his contagious smile.

Olivia Caviness; his mother, Rayceine Carpenter Reardon; his sister, Rachel Reardon Shaw; his brother,

G. Allen Reardon, Jr.; nieces and nephews, Rebekah Stefanski, Joshua Shaw, Sarah Shaw Wilkes,

Timothy Shaw, Trey Reardon, and Jack Reardon.  John was preceded in death by his father,

Glen Allen Reardon, Sr.


Memorial donations may be made in honor of John to the National Park Foundation.
