John Wayne Bridges


John Wayne Bridges, 77, of Conroe, Texas was born on February 6, 1942 in Shreveport, Louisiana to the late June Ruth and William Montgomery Bridges. He passed away unexpectedly at his home on October 3, 2019. At this time, funeral services are pending and will be released at a later date. Interment will follow in Dry Creek Cemetery.

John was a loving father, brother, and friend. He proudly served our country in the United States Navy before becoming a long-haul truck driver. He worked hard and loved meeting new people-he never met a stranger and made a friend wherever he went. John enjoyed dancing, cook-offs, being with his friends, and spending time with his family. He was an active member of the VFW Post # 4709. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

Those left to cherish John Wayne’s memory include his children: Jessica Rene Bridges, Bill Cooper, Carolyn “Sissy” Cooper, Kim Cooper, C. Dan Dugan and wife Julee and Brittany Bennett; as well as 17 grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

He is preceded in death by his parents.

Burial arrangements are entrusted to McNutt Funeral Home of Conroe, Texas.
