John was a fighter who always had such a positive outlook and wonderful attitude. I knew John from the Y when he would join his son during Tom's volunteer shift at the front desk. He later was part of my Livestrong group when I led the evening group. He always was upbeat and always pushed hard to make himself stronger during those sessions. He had a great love for life and his family. His story endures on the story wall at the Y. He will be missed by all who knew him.
