John passed away on Wednesday
March 23rd, 2005 peacefully with his wife Roberta and
children by his side. Our deepest sympathies to John's
John was diagnosed of March 2004 with Renal Cell
Carsinoma. He had a radical nephrectomy (kidney removal).
He did receive a 6 wk treatment of immunotherapy which was
the IL-2. In that process we had found out he had
metastatic cancer that had spread to his bones. In August
2004, John had a brain MRI done. It was confirmed that
there was a tumor on the brain. The tumor is too far down
for surgery to be a possibility. He is currently under
hospice care. .
Prior to his illness, he worked as a senior
distribution representative. John and I have only been
married for two years.
John has 2 children who lost their mother to breast
cancer in September 2000. I have recently adopted those
children and I have one of my own. We have a daughter,
Skylar, 14, and two boys, Anthony and Jordon, both 11.
John enjoys hunting, fishing and family camping trips.
He also loves the beach and the outdoors. His favorite
animals are deer and turkeys along with his Shih-Tzu,
Gremmi. He loves listening to Country Music. His favorite
color is green.
Some of his favorite snack foods include 3 Musketeers,
Cashews and Slim Jims.
