John McNeilly

Friend to so many and fixture in the Sonoma Valley, John McNeilly, was involved in a serious car accident in Marin County on his way home from work late Monday night 2/21/22. The collision was such that required John to be extricated from the car, where he sustained significant injuries. John was transported to a hospital in Marin County, where he has undergone several surgeries. Due to his condition, John has been unable to provide much detail as to the cause of the collision, and more information will be forthcoming in the days ahead. John has been stabilized and he continues to show incremental improvements. While much remains unknown, the extent of his injuries is such that will require extensive assistance and rehabilitation. I will update this site with information consistent with the wishes and at the direction of John’s daughters, Megan and Emma.

In my opinion, John’s servant heart and his love for this community are best reciprocated by rallying in his support in his time of need, and pooling the resources necessary to ensure that John’s only focus will be healing. Other fundraising avenues will be announced in the future, and any contributions in John’s support are so very appreciated by his family.
