John Decker

August 26, 1956 — December 20, 2020

John Michael Decker, age 64, of Flatonia, Texas passed away on Sunday, December 20, 2020. John was born August 26, 1956 in Houston, Texas to Josephine Elizabeth Davies Decker and John William Decker. John was a loving son, husband, father, brother, and friend to all of those who knew him. He always found a way to make those around him laugh with his jokes and his stories. There was always a lesson, a solution, a life perspective, and endless words of wisdom from him. He instilled his spirit of hard work in his children and those around him, preparing them and molding them to prosper in their own lives. He leaves behind a legacy that is more than just the stories, the instruction, or the provision, but the joy from every conversation we have shared and the smiles, chuckles, and the emotions that came with it. John is survived by his wife, Diane Decker; mother Josephine Decker of Houston, Texas; Sons John Decker Jr. of Sugar Land, Texas, Alan Decker of Sugar Land, Texas and Stephen Decker of Flatonia, Texas; daughter Elizabeth Humphries (Christopher) of La Porte, Texas; brother Matthew Decker of Conroe, Texas; and sister Margie Huegel of Montgomery, Texas.
