John was born on April 2, 1944, in Seminole, Texas, to Elmer and Olaine Driver. He grew up and attended school in Seminole, Texas.

He later owned and operated Driver Investment and River Resources and Driver Quick Line. John also enjoyed traveling all around the USA going to auctions and trying to get a good deal on a piece of equipment, but what he truly loved was being in the company of friends and family, using his dry, Driver sense of humor and wit to entertain everyone.
John is survived by four children. Daughter, Jennifer Marchant and her husband, Johnny of Cabot, Ark. Son, Brady John Driver May and his wife, Amy of Prescott, Ark. Daughter, Tami Kuntz and husband Kim of Watertown, Minn; and daughter, Christin Driver of Romulus, Mich.
