While the show must go on in Branson and the entertainers will continue to deliver excellent performances for our entertainment pleasure, they will be delivered and received with bittersweet joy and very heavy hearts as Branson will never be the same. It will always be missing the sparkling energy of John Sager.

Beloved by all who knew him and all that had the pleasure of meeting him, John Sager fulfilled his mission on Earth way too soon and returned Home the morning of September 17, 2017.

Those of us that were fans of his magnificent talent, his infectious and enthusiastic joy for life, his zany sense of humor, and his ever-present smile will forever miss his presence among us. But as family, friends and fans we were lucky to have been in his life and will carry him in our hearts forever.

To know John was to love and enjoy life. We learned that from just being around him.

He was fun, friendly, and fantastically talented. Repeatedly he was #1 in various categories every year-whether Branson award shows, Rio Grande Valley award shows or Branson Radio’s Top Ten Requested Songs.

He loved his family, his friends, and his fans and that love was always openly displayed. We all saw it on Facebook!

Rest in Peace, sweet, loveable John. We will miss you forever!
