John was born on July 31, 1953 in Midland, Texas to Kirk and Alice Newsom Primm and he passed away at CHI St. Vincent’s ICU unit in Hot Springs, Arkansas.John is now free of all the disabilities he experienced here on earth. He was born with poor eye sight and started wearing glasses at 6 months. He was always listed as legally blind. He was also born with physical disabilities.He attended Elementary School in Smackover, Arkansas, and graduated from Benton High School in 1972. Because of his disabilities, he developed a remarkable memory. He was trained at the Arkansas School of the Blind and secured a job with the Federal Government in Boston, Massachusetts. He worked with the IRS in answering telephone questions about federal income taxes. John loved Boston and worked there for ten years. As his health declined, he had to leave Boston and move back to live with his family in Ashdown, Arkansas. After the death of his mom and step-dad, John moved to Hot Springs in 2016 to be near extended family.John was preceded in death by his mother, Alice Newsom Primm Fain, and step-father, Marshall Fain. He is survived by his father, Kirk Primm in Phoenix, Arizona, a brother, Mark and wife Sheila Primm, nephews Jonathan Primm and Roy (Alanna) Primm, and great nephews Jeremiah (Jonathan) and Teagan (Roy) Primm. Other family and loved ones include Mary Ellen White, Kathie White, Greg andKaren White Lewis, Sam and Kristi White Anderson, Julie Anderson and Rusty Lookadoo, Kasey and Rebecca Anderson Schultz, and Gloria Plumlee.John never met a stranger and loved to visit and talk to everyone. He often remembered details about family history that few knew and always ended a visit by his family with the words, “I love you”. He was a Christian by faith, a Baptist by denomination, and assured everyone that “everything was right with him and Jesus.”Because of the Corona Virus, there will only be a private grave-side service at Smackover Cemetery in Smackover, Arkansas. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
