John Wesley Heard

 A private funeral service will be held for John Wesley Heard, 51, of Many, Louisiana.  John was born on January 17, 1973 to Joel Heard and Gay Scott Heard in Pleasant Hill, Louisiana. He passed away on May 28, 2024 in Many, Louisiana.

John lived every day of his life true to himself. He was a hardworking, loyal man to those who knew him best. He was also a loving and caring son, brother, uncle, nephew, and friend to many. His greatest title, however, was DAD! He was a one-of-a-kind father, who meant the world to his girls. His passing was sudden and unexpected, and he will forever be remembered and missed. His family can find peace in knowing he is at rest in his heavenly home.

He spent his working career in the forestry service and as a heavy equipment operator in various job titles. He learned his passion for heavy equipment operating and dirt work early on from his father, whom he shared a very close relationship with. He was a God-fearing man and had a close walk with the Lord. He inspired his children and family with his strong faith.

John was preceded in death by his mother, Gay Scott Heard. He is survived by his father, Joel Heard; wife, Charlotte Heard; and daughters, Avery Heard of New Llano, Louisiana and Paige Heard of Many, Louisiana; sisters, Karla Oglesby of Palasade, Colorado, Jennifer Borel and husband, David, of Many, Louisiana, and Amy Jones and husband, Ivan, of Minden, Louisiana; brothers, Mark Heard and wife, Dusty, of Many, Louisiana and Jason Heard and wife, Sandra, of Many, Louisiana; and a host of nieces and nephews. 

Honoring John as pallbearers will be Calvin Dale Campbell, Jacob Heard, Jason Heard, Mark Heard, Ivan Jones, and Ross  Skidmore. Serving as an honorary pallbearer will be Landon Jones.
