John Jarman Rymell

John Jarman Rymell, 53, claimed the promise of his baptism on Wednesday, October 28, 2020 surrounded by his family as he peacefully passed into the arms of Jesus.  He is now healed and whole after a hard fought battle against bladder cancer.   John was born August 11, 1967  in Fort Worth, Texas to Robert and Mary Katherine Rymell.  He graduated from Texas Christian University where he met his beloved wife Erica Kroh.  They married February 8, 1992. They made Fort Worth their home as he and Erica added two beautiful daughters, Kendall and Lily to their family. His hardworking spirit and loyal character translated well into his working life; allowing him to help create a flourishing international oil and gas corporation, PMR Global where John served as the the Owner and President.  His daughters speak glowingly of his care and concern for the people he worked with: he treated everyone with respect and genuinely enjoyed going to work with not just co-workers, but friends.  He and his family were long time members of Arlington Heights United Methodist Church where he was happy to serve in many capacities over the years.   His family says of him, “He was a guy’s guy and an extraordinary girl dad.”  John epitomized living life to the fullest. He loved spontaneity and delighted in spur of the moment experiences with his family (like last minute ticket purchases to take his precious daughters to a concert, even if he was one of the few dads in a girl-packed venue).  His ongoing sense of humor showed up at the most opportune times.  When asked about his favorite Scripture he said, “John 3:16…because it’s short enough for me to remember, but it pretty much sums it up.” He loved to laugh, play and watch golf, fish, and follow all sports (especially his TCU Horned Frogs). None who knew him well would deny that he had an “encyclopedic” knowledge of Horned Frog football stats!  His yearly fishing trips to Jackson Hole with his family and friends were a priority.  Fishing, in general, was a passion, earning him a world record Chum Salmon catch in Vancouver, Canada…with a picture to prove it!   John’s priorities and focus crystalized as his battle with cancer ensued.  He still lived life to the fullest, drawing even closer to the precious family that poured back into him: “his girls,” as he called Erica, Kendall and Lily, were his treasure, but he also drew ever closer to his Savior, Jesus Christ. Truly,  his increasing calling was to be “a fisher of men.” He taught this lesson saying,  “in the end, the only thing that matters is the love for Jesus and my family.”  The ripple effect of his love, laughter, generosity of spirit, and his faith are eternal.  He is now free, blessed, and healed.   John is survived by his wife, Erica Kroh Rymell, his daughters, Kendall Kroh Rymell and Lily Jarman Rymell; his parents, Robert and Mary Katherine Rymell, his brother Thomas …

Throughout his life, Blaine had a special fondness for music, classic automobiles and all types of beer. Blaine was a great uncle (especially to his grand-niece Shelby, who he always delighted with a “special” present at Christmas) and life-long friend to many.  He lived life on his terms and did not let his handicap define him.  You can’t think about Blaine without seeing his smile and hearing his laughter.  Blaine will truly be missed. The family would like to especially thank Dr. Stephen E. Hohmann and the many other doctors at Texas Vascular Associates and Baylor Hospital who treated Blaine for his vascular disease.  Their treatment saved Blaine’s life, and allowed him to continue living a full life for a number of years. Blaine is survived by his brothers Bruce (Judy) and Kurt (Ann), and many cousins, nieces and nephews.  Blaine was preceded in death by his parents Louis and Delores, step-mother Joanne Rozek, and step-brother Randy Meade. Blaine will be cremated at the Alpine Funeral Home in Fort Worth, Texas.  He will be interred in August of 2021 at St. Patrick Cemetery in Bay City, Michigan with a celebration of his life.
