John D. McKinney passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, April 3, 2021 surrounded by his family at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center in Philadelphia. John was 49 years old.

A lifetime resident of Warminster, John was the son of LeRoy T. (Brenda) and the late Anna R. (Leary) McKinney.

John was a graduate of Archbishop Wood High School, Class of 1989, where he was a 4-year All-Catholic member of the football and wrestling teams. In John’s senior year he was the National Prep High School Wrestling Champion at 189 lbs. As an adult, John helped coach with his brother Mike at George Washington High School.

John attended Gwynedd Mercy University and earned certification as a radiologic technologist. More recently, John was self-employed as the owner of McKinney Exterior Cleaning.

In his kind and gentle way, John volunteered at the Benjamin Wilson Senior Center in Warminster. He also donated regularly to Bethanna in Southampton and sponsored several children through World Vision.

John enjoyed listening to music, playing the guitar, going to drive-in movies, and spending time with friends and family.

In addition to his father Roy, John is survived by his brothers Michael (Maureen) Daniel (Karen) and Eric McKinney. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. John will be fondly remembered by his many friends.

John was a great guy. A kind and gentle soul. John always had a smile and always made you feel happy to be around him. I have a lot of great memories of John from when we were kids and as adults sitting around listening to music when the cousins got together. Family parties and cousin get togethers will will never be the same without John, but I know he will be there in spirit.
I am heartbroken over John's loss but I will always remember him with love.

John brightened our lives with his joyful smile when he came into the room. Lived seeing him and talking with him at family parties. He was a wonderful caretaker to his grandfather. He was kind to everyone. John was a cute redheaded baby. We will miss him greatly. Aunt Maureen and Uncle Steve

When I think of John I go back to the days spent on my back patio , covered with a sheet of linoleum , practicing break dancing moves with Kevin and Brian Nolan,
It was nice to know that John was still in the circle of friends after all these years!
Such a nice guy, gone too soon!
Condolences to the Mc Kinney family!

My heartbreaks for the entire McKinney family and to all of John's friends. John was as genuine a person as you could find. He brought joy and laughter to where ever he went. It was an pleasure and a honor to call him my friend.

Rest easy, Big John....we love you!

My sincere condolences go out to the entire McKinney family. I've known John since our early years in grade school. We became close friends in 6th grade. Not only were he and I in charge of distributing milk to all the classrooms, but we both started playing basketball for St. Joe's that year. Neither of us were very good, so we spent a lot of time sitting next to one another on the bench. We'd been friends ever since. I always looked forward to seeing him and sharing some laughs. John was one of the good ones! Taken from us far too soon. I will miss my friend. RIP, buddy.
