Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

As most of you may already know, John was diagnosed with grade 4 glioblastoma multiforma (GBM).  He discovered it after having a seizure on July 12, 2017.  In an instant, he went from the man you all know and love, who walked 3 miles a day to fighting for his life.  It has been over a year of brain surgeries, radiation, chemotherapy and a host of other medications.

After over a year of fighting, he is tired and weak, but still there inside his damaged body.  He is groggy from the medications, but still has his great wit and charm.  He has recently decided that medicine has done all that it can for him and his fate is in God's hands now and has begun the Hospice phase of his treatment.

We can't begin to express our thanks to all of you who have been so supportive with your notes, cards, and especially your prayers and good thoughts.  We only ask that you hold your own loved ones tight, tell each and every one of them how much you love them and continue to send John your thoughts and prayers as John begins his journey home to God.

We pray that his eventual passing will be peaceful.
