In Memory Of John Denver

John was a loving person. He wrote many songs during his short life of only 53 years. Each song that he wrote touched people's hearts. He tried what he could to make the world a better place. His death shattered his family, friends and fans. He will be remembered.

He was born Henry John Deutschendorf Jr on New Year's Eve 1943. As the son of an airforce test pilot, he moved around alot. By age 12, he started to write his own songs. He had been given a guitar by his grandmother which she used in her early years. In 1965, John joined the Chad Mitchell Trio. He tried his luck with Randy Sparks but did not get anything from him except for a new surname. Henry John Deutschendorf was now John Denver.

In 1967, the same year that he married his first wife Ann Martell, the Trio split. He gained fame in the 1970s. He had a huge string of hits. He and Annie adopted their son Zak and daughter Anna-Kate. The late 70s turned into the early 80s. He still wrote songs but they did not make it on the charts. His music sales began to dwindle but he remained as famous as he did in the 70s. He spent most of the 80s trying to help the world become a better place. He was still writing and recording his own songs. He recorded Two Different Directions. He wrote and recorded the songs for the album as the late 80s turned into the early 90s. He married Cassandra Delaney. He and Cassandra became biological parents to a daughter named Jesse-Belle. 

In 1995, he did a concert benefiting the wildlife conservation society. It was to be called the Wildlife Concert. He still wrote and recorded his own songs. He planned to record 2 more albums but did not live long to do anything like that. On October 5th, he did a concert in Corpus Valley, Texas. That was to be the final concert as he did that concert just 1 week before he died. On October 12th 1997, John Denver died when the plane that he was flying crashed into the sea. He will be remembered for the talents that god gave him. His ability to talk to people of all different generations and his ability to write and sing great music.
