John Wayne (J.W.) Moreland, 27, of Horton went to be with the Lord on Oct. 9, 2010, in Canyon. Funeral services were at 10 a.m., Oct. 13, at the Cross Trails Cowboy Church in Fairlie with Shannon Moreland officiating. Interment followed in the Shiloh Cemetery.
Delta Funeral Home in Cooper was in charge of arrangements.
John died due to complications from a motorcycle accident which occurred June 20, 2010. John’s smile and compassionate heart for others was his trademark and was known to literally give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. He was a gifted athlete in every sport he played, and his greatest love was climbing and rappelling big trees.
He was preceded in death by a brother, Montana Moreland, in 1990.
John is survived by his father and stepmother, Shannon and Evette Moreland of Canyon; his mother and stepfather, Laura and Paul Gillham of Horton; brothers Jimmy and Timothy Gillham of Horton and sisters Cheyenne, Cherokee and Shawnee Moreland of Canyon.
