John Condrone

November 16, 1960 — October 20, 2020

John Condrone, 59, passed away Tuesday, Oct. 20th after a month-long battle with COVID-19. A lifelong musician and songwriter, John’s gift was music, and he shared it generously with the world. From countless workshops and performances to his years as a worship leader and his work as a DJ for weddings and parties across the Southeast, John spent every free minute filling the world with songs. Those who knew him at DENSO or Dollywood will remember him for his unstoppable work ethic as well as his uncanny ability to always put a smile on your face. Whether singing a silly song or having just told one of his delightfully corny jokes, John’s joy and good nature were infectious. As an award-winning, Dove and Grammy-nominated songwriter, professional wrestler, children’s book author, and more, John lived a fuller life in 59 years than many do in 90. John is survived by twin sons, Chandler and Chase; their mom, Karen; his significant other, Marie Owen; her daughters, Stephanie Owen and Ashley Cornwell (husband, Michael and daughters, Emerie, Avery, and Kylee); three brothers, Bruno (wife, Sharon), Butch (wife, Glenda), and Tim (wife Brenda); and many nieces and nephews. John was preceded in death by his father, Joseph; mother, Marie; and stepmother, Mona; as well as three brothers, Joe, Jimmy, and Billy; and is no doubt serenading them all now alongside his beloved corgi, Cherry Pie. As one of his many wonderful songs said, John truly left "a little love in the world" ...and a whole lot more after that. He will be sorely, sorely missed. In lieu of flowers, John’s family has set up a GoFundMe to cover expenses and help memorialize John’s legacy.
