Son Needs Help For Funeral For Dad

$8,165 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 123 people in 23 months
Created July 8, 2017

John Senior fought hard to stay with those who love him but his body could not keep up with all he was going through.  Doctors were unable to proceed further with additional treatment as it would have caused more damage and/or sudden death.  He passed away last night with John,  Brittney, and Lisa by his side.  John Senior can now be at peace without pain. We will all miss the love and kindness he shared of himself . 

Donations are still being accepted to fund funeral, burial, and medical expenses as John Senior used all his savings and equities, including his home and life insurance, to pay for the care of his ailing wife who passed away in 2013 from breast and colon cancer. Following the death of his wife, John Senior was forced into early retirement due to a heart condition. His son John now has the sole responsibility of paying these expenses.

John is a dedicated son and future son-in-law who we love very much!  At age 25 years old, this is a  financial  burden  on him.

John Jr. spent 4 years as a Marine serving our country. He is staying brave and strong but is too proud to ask for help so we are doing this for him. He’s such a kind-hearted, strong willed and hard working person. 

There are not enough words to thank those of you who have already donated. Our hearts are warmed by your generosity and prayers.

Sharing this page would help to meet the financial responsibilities John is now facing.

With Love and Thanks,

Deb, Jim, Emily and Brittney

John is having the breathing tube removed from his mouth and having a tracheostomy tomorrow. We're wanting him to breathe comfortably. We are praying he can breathe on his own very soon.
He can move his right foot a bit but we are still wondering why he isn't waking up fully to communicate with us. We are told that the multiple strokes he had are most likely the reason why he won't move parts of his body. His left side is paralyzed. The neurologist doesn't have much information to provide us at this time while John isn't able to move much or speak.
He is able to respond to John Conrad, Lisa and Brittney when they ask him questions by moving his right foot. He opens and closes his eyes at times but we don't know if he can see fully.
His Leukemia is under control which is a good thing. But we need to be very careful of infection due to his low white blood cell count.
The doctors also think he will have to be on dialysis for the rest of his life if his kidneys don't pull through.
There are many more details but right now its all about time and a slow recovery. He is in our prayers and he loves all of you very much!

-Brittney and John C.
