John "Jade" Anthony Bates
It is with great sadness that on Friday, April 30th, 2021, John "Jade" Anthony Bates, a loving husband and father, passed away peacefully at home from a long battle from a rare disease, with his wife by his side.
Jade was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI and lived most of his life in Minneapolis, MN. He loved music, movies, art and being with friends and family.
Enjoyed cooking and baking for his family. Worked hard his whole adult life. Became a devoted husband to Liz, and father of twin boys Ki and Kadin now age 11, who were the light of his life. Loved his Mother dearly and had faith in the Lord. He will be missed greatly and never forgotten. Taken from us way too soon.
He leaves behind his wife Liz, their twin boys Ki and Kadin and many family members and friends. He may rest in peace now with his Mother and two older brothers.
In his honor, we will have a celebration of life this summer
