John Erwin "Johnny" "Johnboy" Hadley Jr. from Battle Creek, passed away Tuesday, June 20, 2017 at Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital, Grand Rapids, and is in his heavenly home with his savior. He was born on June 28, 1960 in Long Beach, California to John Erwin Hadley Sr. and Judy Lee (Danek). His dad was stationed at the Naval Base and John and three of his siblings were born there before coming back to Battle Creek where both of his parents and their family resided.

John went to Battle Creek Public Schools and Pennfield Schools. He was married to Frances E. Clifford who proceeded him in death. His family lived in Dearborn Heights a few years where Frances family was from. He is survived by six children, step-daughter Shannin Monarch, Corwin (Tonya) Hadley, Kristal Hadley, Andrew Hadley, Jazmin (Bradley) Hillman and Matthew (Haylee) Hadley. He has twelve grandchildren and one on the way. Also surviving are his sister, Sheryl (Daniel) McNally and his four brothers, Jym (Cathy) Hadley, Steve (Heather) Hadley, Scott (Penny) Hadley, and Topher Hadley. John was preceded in death by his parents.

John was a team leader at TRMI working there for 18 years. John loved spending time with his children, grandchildren, siblings, nieces, nephews and friends just hanging out, chilling and conversating. He learned to work on autos from his dad as an adolescent and therefore would be the auto mechanic for whoever needed his assistance.

A memorial service to celebrate John's life is going to held at 11:00 am Saturday, June 24, 2017, at Bethel Baptist Church, 141 S. Finlay in Battle Creek, MI 49037 with Pastor Randy Stewart officiating and a luncheon following downstairs. In lieu of flowers please make contributions to a rehabilitation center of choice.
