John Thrasher, 58, passed away April 25, 2020.  He was born July 27, 1961 in Wheeling, West Virginia.   John loved music, singing and performing for others and was in the band Mozez for several years.  Most of all he loved spending time with his family, fishing and golfing with his grandsons, spending the summers boating on Indian Lake and the Portage Lakes and riding his Harley.  John has impacted the lives of everyone he has met and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.  His absence has left an emptiness in our hearts.
