Grave Location Description
As you walk through the front gate walk straight ahead and veer slightly to the left as you approach the cemetery plot of 10 graves surrounded by a waist-high iron fence. Walk past the iron fence on your left and the Heard Family plot is right in front of you facing the river. Please note as of 2021 his grave remains unmarked and it is rumored his son Max (who died of an overdose just six months before the passing of John) is buried to the right of his father.
