In Loving Memory

John Alan Revell

May 21, 1959 – June 2, 2021

John Alan Revell, 62, of Friendswood, Texas passed away suddenly at his home on June 2, 2021.  

John was born in O'ahu, Hawaii on May 21, 1959.  He was preceded in death by his mother, Barbara Revell Jones, father, Joseph Revell, his brothers Phillip, David and Michael Revell, and sister Kathryn Revell Fowler. 

John is survived by his loving wife and best friend, Maria, his daughter Heather Walker and husband Christopher, his sons, Joshua Revell and wife Amy, Joseph Revell, Jacob "Jake" Revell, Jeremy Revell and wife Brittany, and grandchildren, Zachary Walker, Josie Revell, Kelsey Walker, Drake Revell, Avery Walker, and Reef Revell.  He is lovingly remembered by his sister Theresa Schmidt and husband Frank, and numerous extended family members.

John and Maria's marriage is an inspiring story of commitment, dedication and love that began on Valentine's Day 25 years ago.  John was a friend to many and always ready to lend a hand.  He was known for his integrity, building skills, work ethic, and his love and devotion to his family and faith in Jesus.   John was always busy outside on his property and went to be with the Lord while doing what he enjoyed.       

John has held a list of notable positions in Commercial Construction over the years including the past 10 years at Karsten Interior Services as the Director of Project Management.

We will celebrate and honor his life on Thursday, June 10, 2021 at 10:00 A.M. beginning with Mass at Mary Queen Catholic Church, 606 Cedarwood Drive, Friendswood, followed by his Rite of Committal at Forest Park East Cemetery, 20620 Gulf Freeway, Webster.

  1. Joyce & Tom Dill

    So very sorry for the sudden loss of John. We didn't know him very well but still mourn the loss of a good man, husband, father and ex neighbor! We miss you and the neighborhood but are pleased with our new home and new friends we've made here for the past 1 1/2 years in spite of the pandemic. Our sincere thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.

  2. John's integrity was immediately apparent to me the day we first met t over two decades ago and reaffimed each and every time we spoke thereafter. His commitment to Maria and the kids exuded sacrificial love and service. I feel fortunate to have known John and he will be greatly missed.

  3. I will always remember John as a giving, kind man who was always available with a helping hand and a smile. I am so sorry for your loss.

  4. So sorry to hear about John! He did a lot of work for me for many years. He was a hard worker, man of very high integrity, good friend and an all around great person. You will be truly missed.

  5. I was one of the fortunate ones that got to work with and be mentored by John. We worked side by side for several years. We had lunch together every day. A tradition that continued monthly after I left. We prayed together every day, and shared a special bond. As I am the parent of a special needs child as well. He was my friend, mentor, and confidant. Truly a one of a kind, gentle giant. In his family, faith, and work. Words just can not express how amazing Pappa John was. He was a dad to us all.

  6. John Revell was the embodiment of what is good in people. I had numerous conversations with him over the years, and he inspired me to no end each time our paths crossed. His love of God, family and his country was inspirational and the world will be much darker without his presence. May God keep him in his kingdom until we all see his smiling face again.

    Maria and family, we are so sad that John at John's passing. He was an amazing man, husband, father, and friend. He was so selfless, caring, and always willing to help out or just sit and chat.

    Dear Maria and family,
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. John was a good man and great father, especially to Jake. May God's peace be with you in the coming days and only happy memories remain.

    To the revell family,
    It was so good to get to know John with the little time we had on the baseball team this challenger league past season. He was always friendly and had a smile and could tell his love for Jake. I'm so so sorry to hear about this news. Praying for your family during this.

  12. I am so very sorry for your unexpected loss. It seems we keep losing more and more of the good people. Maybe it's because they've made such an impression on those around them and been good stewards of God's love that they earned their way into Heaven quicker than most. Either way, I am sorry this happened to such a sweet and caring family and I'll keep you, Jake and the rest of your family in my thoughts and prayers. God bless!
