John Metro Wise quietly entered into rest on June 14, 2022. He was born in Atlanta, Georgia on November 8, 1946, to the late John Henry Wise and Leona Wise.

He attended Anderson Park Elementary School and Henry McNeal Turner High School. He was drafted into the Army and served in the Vietnam War. When he returned home, he worked with his father. John Metro loved worshipping the Lord. He attended West Mitchell Street CME Church which was the family church and in his golden years Berean Christian Church.

John Metro affectionately went by his middle name. He loved taking long walks though out his neighborhood and watching television. His life was centered around spending time with the family on occasions such as the holidays, family reunions and simple family dinners. Anyone who knew him knew that his favorite pass time was eating especially eating his snacks. He had an easy going spirit and was loved by all. Metro kept up with the activities of everyone in the family. He always wanted to know how everyone was doing especially the great nieces and great nephews.

Metro leaves to cherish his memories: one sister Myrna Annette Wise; one niece Lisa Sharise Wise; three nephews Curtis Anthony Wise (Monica), Kenneth Allen Wise (Kimberly) and Derek Durrell Wise; six great nieces Kyrie’ Wise Smith (John), Andrea Wise, Kailey Nicole Wise, Quovadis Wise, Tiffany McCarter (Darius), DeEreka Wise; one great nephew Soloman Jacob Wise and a host of great-great nieces, great-great nephews, cousins, and friends.
