John H. Mott

Mr. John H. Mott, age 90, died Monday morning at North Florida Regional Hospital. Mr. Mott was business partners with his late wife, Valair Mott, in the operation and ownership of the John Mott Tire Company in Gainesville, FL. for more than 35 years. John was born October 4, 1926 in Brooker, FL. to Jim Mott and Bonnie Sapp Mott. He was raised in Brooker and graduated from Bradford County High School. He served in the U.S. Navy and was a member of the First Baptist Church of Gainesville, the D.O.W. Sunday School Class, the Eastside Garden Club, and the Masons. John was preceded in death by his beloved wife Valair Mott, and siblings L.A. Mott, O.J. Mott, and Mary Sue Mott Rahn, and is survived by many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Two of John’s greatest enjoyments in life were traveling with Valair, and acts of philanthropy. John will be remembered as a gentleman who always spoke kindly of others, and who was beloved by all – especially by those who knew him best. A graveside service will be held Friday, November 11, 2016 at 11:00 A.M at the Antioch Cemetery, La Crosse, FL. Those who wish may make a contribution in John’s name to the organization of their choice.
