John Michael Babb, 77 of Glenwood, Iowa formerly of North Platte, Nebraska passed away June 6, 2018 in Omaha, Nebraska. He was born on March 19, 1941 in Falls City, Nebraska to John Albert and Virginia Annette (Hall) Babb.

John was united in marriage to Janett G. Fourtner on November 23, 1962 in North Platte, Nebraska. To this union two daughters were born, Kristine and Cindi. John was employed with Union Pacific as a Special Projects Engineering Designer. He was a master builder of motorcycles, woodworking projects and building two additions on to his home. He and Jan enjoyed hosting many bon fires and gatherings at their home through the years, so it seemed fitting to remember John to share memories together with family and friends.

Preceding John in passing were his parents. Survivors include his wife Janett Babb of Glenwood, Iowa; daughters, Kristine (Daniel) Duffy of Glenwood, Iowa; Cindi Babb of Pacific Junction, Iowa; grandchildren, Michelle Cowles, David Babb, Jennifer Cowles and Katie Cowles; sister, Jane (Tom) Pappas of Idaho Falls, Idaho; brother in law Rich (Jeannie) Fourtner, of North Platte, NE; extended relatives and friends.

Interment to be held at a later date.

Memorials may be directed to Hooves and Paws Rescue of the Heartland, Inc.

    To John’s family – You have my deepest sympathy. John was always a hard worker. The diligent work that he did taking field notes at the North Platte Classification Yard was a good example of that. I will never forget him. He was tops in my book….Tom Wallace
