John Howard Larrabee II, 23, of Knox, Maine became heaven's newest angel on February 03, 2023, when he lost his battle with mental illness.
John grew up in Belmont, Maine, where he discovered an amazing love for nature and wildlife. He saw the beauty in everything from wildlife to clouds in the sky capturing it all through the lens of a camera. John graduated from Belfast Area High School in 2017, he went to work at Wallace Moving Company, where he continued to work until shortly before he was sadly called home. He loved going for walks daily, he enjoyed listening to his favorite bands including Gorillaz, AC/DC, tool, and Seether. John loved visiting his sister Rachel Larrabee at their nana Moores house, he also loved picking on Rachel via text, phone call, or in person. He really loved spending time with his sister raising hell and singing songs.
Sadly on February 3, 2023, our sweet John couldn't handle the pain of his mental illness any longer and he took his own life. He leaves behind a devastated family who wants everyone to understand the pain of mental Illness. John was a sweet man, with a sweet soul he will be missed and forever loved.
