John Denver born on December 31st 1943 and died on 12th October 1997, the same year as Princess Diana, in a two-seat light plane along the California coast. It was and engine failure around 5pm, plunging him into ocean waters just past Monterey Bay. John was 53 John Denver earned international fame writing songs performing acting, was foremost in environmental issues and humanitarian. John’s music lasted over 3three decades and many styles during that era.
Denver's first marriage was to Annie Martell. Annie was the inspiration for his hit "Annie's Song". He and Annie adopted a son Zachary and daughter Anna Kate as he was unfortunately infertile. He divorced Annie in 1982. His 2nd marriage was to Australian actress and singer Cassandra Delaney in 1988. They had a daughter named Jesse Belle, after Denver had medical treatment for his infertility. They divorced in 1993.
My favourite song he sang was Annie's Song and many of his songs were being played during a very difficult time in my life. I often sit and listen to this song and think back. What if!
For him his life was believed he had some issues with drinks and drugs, quite typical of this time, and for me, will only say, just more dramas..
John's death came as shock to me seeing him on the TV again and his songs being played on radio. I loved his speaking voice and his views on the environment. May you rest in peace John
