John Brian Wishard


John Brian Wishard, 58, of Pearland, Texas passed away on September 16, 2021. John was born to Clarence “C.J.”  and LaNell Wishard on August 1, 1963 in Sugarland, Texas. John was a life-long resident of Pearland. After graduation, John enlisted in the US Air Force Reserves, and then enlisted in the US Air Force, where he received an Honorable Discharge.

John was so proud to serve in the US Air Force, and just below his love for God, was his love of the United States and the Armed Services. As a patriot, John continued to be a proud supporter of the Armed Services throughout his life. John was fortunate to have an exceptional “CARE” team at the Houston VA, which included Nurse Q and Dr. Bauer.

As a child, John loved to play in “the woods” behind his house with his siblings  – building “forts,” following animal trails, and enjoying nature. As an adult, John continued to love being surrounded by nature, but soon his love of fishing took top priority. John spent countless hours with his dad at the “Lakehouse,” fishing at Lake Livingston.

John will be laid to rest at the Houston National Cemetery with full military honors.

John was preceded in death by his loving grandmother: Bobbie C. Modisette and step-father: Gerald Farmer, a decorated veteran. Left to cherish the memories of his gentle nature and ability to love unconditionally are his mother: LaNell Wishard Farmer; father: Clarence “C.J.” and wife Myrna; sisters: Sharon Mikeska and husband Greg; Karen Nutt and husband Keith; brother: David Wishard; nieces: Jen Campbell, Tiffany Craig, Lauren Mikeska; Krista Presswood and husband Cody; nephew: Kevin Nutt; and numerous other family members and friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations be made to “PTSD Foundation of America: Houston, Texas – Camp Hope”, a vital resource for military veterans suffering with PTSD.


  1. We are so sorry, have just heard. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
    God bless

  2. John was a good friend of mine for about 2 years at Montgomery high School in Montgomery Texas. He had an old Camaro with that 327 small block that he said he rebuilt it was a fast car. I thoroughly enjoyed riding with him he was a good driver scared me sometimes but he was a good driver. I lived in April sound with his mother and I. We went our separate ways. I always thought about him. I just found him on the internet he’s with the Lord and I will see him again someday. God bless John and his family.
