John was a devout Catholic and his pastimes included reading, writing and engaging in religious and philosophical discussions with his friends. His generous nature and positive outlook have been an inspiration to many. His insightful posts on social media have uplifted and comforted family and friends alike.

John was born with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and has had many obstacles to overcome, which he did with great faith and his characteristic smile and twinkle in his eyes. Due to the extraordinary care his mother provided, John surpassed his life expectancy by 30 years. He was amazing - a true miracle.

With the remarkable care of Valley Hospice, John was able to remain at home, surrounded by his family, where he wanted to be. Thank you Valley Hospice staff for your excellent care and compassion.
