John was born on October 13, 1965 in Louisville, KY, and grew up in Jeffersonville, IN. John was a man of many talents. He was a barber for 25 years at the Clipper, an entrepreneur, leading him to becoming a mortgage broker and partner at Genesis One, the Utica Township Trustee, and a self-proclaimed comedian and the best storyteller ever; he could always make you laugh!

He enjoyed spending time with his family, fishing, smoking his famous brisket, cutting his grass, singing, and watching Big Foot shows and Ancient Aliens. John was a Past Master Mason of Utica Lodge 337 and was bestowed the honor of being a Kentucky Colonel.  He was a pillar in his community, a man of faith, and an amazing husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He was truly one of a kind.

He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Donna (Edlin) Durbin.

He is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Robin; daughters, Piper Durbin and Payton Durbin, and her fiancé Zach Coleman; grandsons, Colt and Levi; brothers, Jeff and Jody; along with numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and too many friends to mention.

Memorial contributions can be made to Utica Masonic Lodge 337.  Envelopes will be available at the funeral home.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
