John Edwin Bloxsom, age 64 of Denton, passed away on Friday, August 12, 2022.

John was born on November 1, 1957 in Camden, NJ. John was the rock of his family and had one of the most infectious smiles and laughs. He was a former owner/operator of Colonial Materials in Pleasant Garden before retiring. He liked to hire local folks and was a mentor to many of them. When he wasn’t working, he was an avid fisherman and hunter. John loved working in his garden and enjoyed giving away much of what was grown to family, friends, neighbors, and organizations. John loved working on the family land, riding his tractor, playing guitar and singing. He is a member at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church in Lexington where he served on the parish council, finance committee, and sang in the choir. John loved his family and adored his eight grandchildren. John is preceded in death by his sister, Patricia Ann Bloxsom.
