John was diagnosed with AML, Acute myeloid leukemia, in October 2017. After several unsuccessful rounds of chemo at CBCI, a specialist clinic for treatment of blood cancers at Presbyterian St Luke’s in Denver, John went home for hospice care.

Though he was greatly weakened by his difficult hospital stay, John managed to enjoy normal life with his family. His determination and positive attitude were inspiring. He relished his final days with his beloved wife, growing granddaughter, good wine, friends and family.

After two months at home, his leukemia began to advance rapidly. He lived life to the fullest until he wasn’t able to anymore. On March 2nd, after only 4 days on his death bed, John left this earth. His family, friends and colleagues will miss him terribly. His legacy as a generous, kind, wise and sometimes mischievous man will live on in the memories of all who knew him.
