John Ignatius Reidzans, age 83, of Greenville, is now walking with Jesus as of Thursday, July 14, 2022. He proudly served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. John radiated the joy of the Lord. He was a generous, loving man that would drop everything to help others and share whatever he had. His faith in Christ gave him such joy which was a reflection of his selflessness. Most of all, he loved spending time with his family. Most people knew him as an avid Nascar fan.
