November 30, 1935     ~     October 29, 2011

John C. Short, 75, Glasgow, died Saturday, October 29, 2011, at NHC of Glasgow. A native of Barren County, he was a son of the late Rodman and Altie Jones Short.

As a child, John suffered from Scarlet Fever that left him deaf. At age 7 he entered the Kentucky School for the Deaf in Danville, where he continued to study for the next 11 years. Upon returning to Glasgow, he was hired by Dusty Miller at his dry cleaners as a presser—a vocation John kept until he retired. He worked most of his life at Miller & Johnson Cleaners, which later became Bertram & Jolly Cleaners, and then later at Custom Touch Cleaners. He was a member of Dover Baptist Church at Haywood and had been attending Calvary Baptist Church, where he had been actively involved with teaching others the art of sign language.

Survivors include four brothers, Rodman Short, Jr., James Short (Joyce), Billy Short (Carlotta), and Donald Short (Terri); three sisters, Sandra Muir (Jim), Linda K. Shaw, and Beverly Wells (Wayne); several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two sisters, Ruby E. Short and Phyllis Lee; and by two brothers, Herbert Short and Kenneth Short.

Funeral services will be held 2:00 p.m. Monday at the Hatcher & Saddler Funeral Home with burial in the Glasgow Municipal Cemetery. Friends may call after 12 noon Sunday at the funeral home.
