John Coaxum II

July 27, 1962 — January 12, 2022

Johnny was born on July 27, 1962, and passed on January 12, 2022, at the age of 59. John was born in Champagne, IL. However, he was raised from the age of 10 in Sacramento, CA. He is survived by his wife, Sheila Coaxum, and five children (John III, Jason, Justin, Sheonnie, and Jamal). He has six grandsons and one granddaughter, as well as his two surviving brothers (Charles and Paul), and two sisters (Janice and Sandra).


John was a good person who loved nature and to make people smile. He left us here on earth, but rejoins his mother, father and oldest brother that passed before him. We miss him very much… forever. Until we meet again, we love you.


 In loving memory of John Coaxum


John III
Dear Dad, I write this with a heavy heart in essence of you leaving so soon. I want you to know I will cherish all we have created and lessons I have learned from you. I know in my moments of sadness and weakness it’s just you tapping me to say “what’s up Johnnie, what’s wrong with you boy?”. I will truly miss you, I wish you happiness and peace in your final resting place. I love you and will always
Your son, John Coaxum III


Dad, I’m glad over the years me and you were able to build a relationship and spend time together with me and Baby J. 👦🏽 I’m thankful for all the lessons you taught me even when you didn’t know you were teaching. I applied them to my life and it’s helped mold me to the man I am today. When I think of you I’ll smile instead of feeling sad and remember all the time and memories we had together. I’ll miss you every day, and I will carry you with me, whatever I do.
Your son, Jason John Coaxum


To my dad John Coaxum. I can only imagine the world you finally have. All these years of being here for us and raising us to be men and teaching us. I know you can finally rest and enjoy your world cause your pain is gone. Please do enjoy that. I will always miss you and love you.
Your son, Justin


“ away “
I cannot say, and I will not say
That he is dead- . He is just away!
With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand
He has wandered into an unknown land,
And left us dreaming how very fair
It needs must be, since he lingers there.
And you- O you, who the wildest yearn
For the old-time step and the glad return- ,
Think of him faring on, as dear


In the love of There as the love of Here;
Think of him still as the same, I say:
He is not dead - he is just away!


I miss you now & I’ll love you forever. Until we meet again old man.
Your daughter, Sheonnie


Hey dad this is your youngest boy, I will never forget the times we had by the water and the times we had doing Christmas trees and taking them long drives. I wish there could be more time like that but I know you will allways be with me, and I want you to know that you’ll always be missed and loved dad. From all of us, love you and see you again one day.
Your son, Jamal
