John Dean Burchett, 61, of Ankeny, IA, passed away peacefully in his sleep on October 2, 2022.

A Celebration of Life will be held Thursday, October 6, 2022, beginning at 5:00 p.m. at the American Legion Post 232 (114 W. Broadway St.) in Polk City, IA.

John was born October 1, 1961, in Fort Madison, IA, to Roy and Darlene (Pulpeater) Burchett. He graduated from North Polk High School. He owned his own drywall business, Burchett Drywall, for around ten years before working at Granger Motors where he worked for six years.

John was an avid golfer and Minnesota Vikings fan. He enjoyed bowling, playing pool, and drinking his Busch Light. He never knew a stranger and was well-known for his “Bad Dad” jokes. He went by many nicknames, but most knew him as “Johnny B.” John always put his family first and he loved spending time with them.

He is survived by his wife of 18 years, Kim Burchett; daughters, Cortney Burchett and Kerri (Aaron) Burke; grandchildren, Bryce Burke and Brianna Burke; siblings, Bob Burchett, Ron Burchett, and Deanna Burchett; and many friends. He is preceded in death by his parents; and first wife, Beverly Burchett.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the family.
