John Wesley Oldham IV

July 1, 2001 — March 4, 2021

John Wesley Oldham IV transitioned on Thursday March 4, 2021 at his residence in Hampton, Virginia.

Our beloved John Wesley Oldham IV, 19, of Virginia Beach was born on July 1, 2001. John was cool, stylish, and loved to play basketball. He was the light of the room, the rays in the sky and our pride and joy. John graduated from Bayside High school. He could be very quiet and shy but often told us he loved us. John touched so many with his smile and spark, and exemplified us every time we saw him. Now John can spread his wings and soar. John is preceded by his Grandfather Booker T. Whitfield III. Survived by his mother, Shelane Williams, sisters (Arianna, Ileenna, and Gabriella) Paternal Grandparents (Betty Whitfield) (Sandy Magee, Sedrick) Father John Wesley Oldham III (John Wesley Oldham II, Pearl) Two best friends (Traiviyon Wilson, Sylvia) (Keshawn Roundtree, Betty) and a large host of Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins.

John 3:16 For god so loved the world. He gave his one and only son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
