Most of us know John Pederson as John Fu, JP, Homer Beanfang, Friend, Husband, Dad, and Papa. He has always had a heart of gold and a personality that can fill up any room he enters. On Thursday, March 16th, John had a stroke affecting the right side of his brain. As a result he's currently experiencing paralysis along his left side. That's the bad news. The good news is he is still with us, can still talk and has the same John Fu personality we all know and love. However, it's going to be a long road to recovery. We will do our best to keep everyone updated through this site. Cyndi and the family are so grateful and overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support in the short time since this happened, it truly shows how many lives John has touched and it means the world to have you all in his corner.
