John Christopher Recker

John Christopher Recker, 69, of Pasco, Washington passed away on Friday, April 12th 2024 in Kennewick, Washington.

Born at Camp Hanford, Washington in 1954 to Stephen and Marjorie Recker, John grew up alongside 7 siblings: Ken, Theresa, Bill, Linda, Steve, Debbie, and Donna. John found himself finding passion in being hands on with all things concrete, ultimately establishing his own small business constructing pools, driveways, statues and foundations.

Throughout his life, John has always been one who loved life and lived it to its fullest. An adventurist who enjoyed meeting new people and making life-long friends, John frequently traveled, fished, and took his numerous cars to car shows.

John is preceded in death by his mother Marjorie Recker, his father Stephen Recker, brothers Billy and Ken, sister Theresa, and grandson Austin; he is survived by wife Edith Grerr Recker, daughters Noelle Holden and Katrina Recker, brother Steven Recker, sisters Linda Dawidjan, Debbie Petross, and Donna Barthuly, as well as five grandchildren: Chloe, Brady, Jamin, Kaleb, and August, and three great-grandchildren: Jadea, Marcelo, and Vicente.

  • Johnny, when we move to Richland in February 1968, you were one of the first to welcome me to town. You were always the first to come up with something fun to do when we were bored and would sell it with that look in your eye that we should have all known meant trouble! Thanks for being a friend and for driving the bootleg car when we’d drive to Moscow for coveted “illegal” Coors beer runs. Rest in peace, John. You will be missed.

  • Johnny, what a wild and crazy time we had! Ups and downs but you always had you infectious smile, a mischievous twinkle in your eye, and your carefree laugh as tho there was no problems in the world. I will miss those time with you my friend.
    Until we meet again, rest in peace my friend!

  • Johnny, so many years of memories. There aren’t enough words to express the feelings of the loss and time shared with you growing up. From my sister’s high school boyfriend, teaching us to drive, helping my mom with outside chores, boat races, double dating and many parties in Richland and California. Time goes by so quickly and so does life. Thank you for being part of mine. You will be missed my friend … my brother.
