John Vidra Memorial Page

A beloved husband, father, grandpa, friend, and so much more is not with us anymore. John was in the hospital for quite a while, since January 7th. He started his fight in a regular room with pnemonia/aggitated COPD. Complications of all sorts, including an infection and H1N1 flu, landed him in the ICU and he was intubated until they were confident in pulling him out of sedation. In the past week or so he was moved back into a regualar room and seemed to being so much better. He was awake and talking, and slowly getting back to being the John that we all know and love. Unfortunately today because of further and sudden complications, he has passed on. 

Right now, his family does not need to be struggling to worry about expenses. John did not have life insurance and in their time of mourning, I ask for all the donations possible. Any amount of money will be so helpful during the hardest time of his family's life. Whether you are able to make a donation or not, PLEASE get the word out. 

John leaves behind his wife Julie, and daughters Dana, Shannon, and Amber who just turned 6. He touched every single person who he met and the loss is already being felt by us all.
