John will be remembered by his fellow realtors, clients, and building contractors as a true professional, dedicated and loyal. It was a profession he loved and gave his all to insure there were no issues left unresolved.

Personally, while exhibiting a sense of adventure, John was a kind, generous and loyal friend, always willing to lend a helping hand. When the end was near and word of his condition reached those who touched his life, a continuous stream of visitors recalled how John had influenced them and touched their lives. Even today, they are close – sharing in the joys and pains that occur in life, celebrating an event or mourning a loss.

To John, Liberty Christian Fellowship Church and the Outer Banks Men’s Bible Study were a central part of his being. In addition to his parents Marvin and Rheba, John is survived by a number of aunts, uncles, cousins and countless close friends who were equally his brothers and sisters.

The future Outer Banks Hospital Outpatient Cancer Treatment Center will house the John Register CT Scanner Area. In lieu of flowers, the Register family is gratefully asking that anyone wishing to honor John’s memory do so with a donation toward this project by visiting the We Love You John Register Facebook page or by calling Jennifer Schwartzenberg directly at 252-449-5933.
