Her Father- John Denver

Born 31 December 1943, John Denver was an American actor, singer-songwriter, humanitarian, and activist whose loud success was as a singer. He started a career in music with folk music in the 1960s. Denver recorded about 300 songs, out of which Denver composed 200. He performed and recorded primarily with a guitar and sang about his disdain for city life, joy in nature, enthusiasm for relationship trials, and music. John Denver’s music has appeared in charts like adult contemporary, Billboard Hot 100, and country music. He has earned four platinum and twelve albums with his songs.

His Music

In 1997, he released the song Oh, God, alongside George Burn, and in his autobiography in 1994, titled Take Me Home, Denver described his upbringing as the eldest son of his family, which was shaped by a stern father who could not express his love for his children. Denver’s father was a military who was constantly on the move. It was hard for Denver to fit into his peer groups’ lives as they changed location all the time.

He grew up changing environment and friends, which made him suffer from an identity crisis. When his family relocated to an Air-Force base in Tucson, Arizona, Denver became a member of the Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus for two years. After which, his father was transferred to a military base in Montgomery, Alabama. 

Denver completed his High School education at Arlington Heights High School. He was distressed, and while in his third year in school, he left school for California to begin his music career. His father flew in a friend’s jet to retrieve him. Denver came back and reluctantly finished high school.

John Denver’s first wife

Denver married Annie Martell, who became the subject of his song Annie’s Song, which Denver composed within just ten minutes. After his song Rocky Mountain High went viral, he bought a house in Colorado. Denver and his wife Annie adopted two children-Anna and Zachary. In 1982, Annie and Denver divorced; Denver mentioned that career demands drove them apart. While Annie said both of them were too immature to handle Denver’s explosion in the music industry.

Denver and Cassandra

In 1986, Denver started dating an Australian actress, Cassandra Delaney, and they tied the knot in 1988. She gave birth to a daughter, Jesse Belle. Denver said Cassandra made a fool out of him. The couple had irreconcilable issues that led to their separation in 1991, and they divorced in 1993.

His Charges and Convictions

John Denver pleaded guilty to a drunken driving charge in 1993. The law enforcement agents placed him on probation. While on probation in 1994, the cops charged him with misdemeanor driving after crashing his Porsche into a tree. The Federal Aviation Administration concluded that Denver was medically unfit to operate an aircraft due to his inability to desist from alcohol. After his drunk-driving conviction, the FAA instructed Denver to stay away from alcohol if he wanted to continue flying airplanes.

John Denver was also interested in artwork painting, but he ventured into photography because of his limiting schedule. He once said, “photography is a way to communicate a feeling”—lean Gallery in Colorado exhibited Denver’s photos in 2014. Although his significant interest was in flying, the famous singer was also a golfer and avid skier.

His Aircrafts

Aside from music, Denver loved to fly, and in 1974, he bought a Learjet, which he used for his Concerts. He owned two Cessna 220 centurion airplanes, a collector of vintage biplanes. And in 1997, he got an amateur-built Rutan Long-EZ.

On 21 April 1989, while taxing down the runway at Holbrook Municipal Airport in his vintage biplane, he was involved in a plane accident. Denver had halted to refuel on a flight from Arizona to Mexico. Sources said that wind gusts caught the plane, making it spin and sustain extensive damage. The accident did not cause him any harm. 

Is Denver dead or alive?

On 12 October 1996, Denver died when his home-built aircraft crashed into Monterey Bay near  Pacific Grove, California. John was the only occupant in the plane. Denver died from multiple blunt force trauma resulting from the crash. John was not legally allowed to fly a plane at the crash. Although, alcohol use was not the cause of the crash. An autopsy report revealed that there was no drug or alcohol in his system.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigation showed that John Denver’s inability to switch fuel tanks during the flight caused the accident. And before the flight, Denver and his mechanic attempted to solve the problem of the flight. But it did not work. After his death, friends and family held his funeral service in Faith Presbyterian Church in Colorado.
