He was born on November 6, 1956 in Trenton, NJ to John and Mamie (Greene) McKinney. On May 29, 1983, he married Maryann Gager, together they had six children. In 1976, John began his lifelong career of truck driving and hauling materials, which he did for thirty-two years.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 35 years, Maryann (Gager) McKinney; daughter Marybeth; son John (Jennifer); daughters Katie, Kayla, and Janiya; son Julian; two grandchildren Sadie McKinney and Khloe Williams; parents John and Mamie (Greene) McKinney; sisters Barbara (Robert) Urban; Brenda (Jack) Peternich; Edna (Kevin) Ridley; mother-in-law Rickey Gager; brother-in-law Robert (Geraldine) Gager; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins; and countless friends that were like family.
