John peacefully came to the end of his battle with liver failure, on Sunday, June 23.
For the past several months, John’s illness required a number of hospital and long term care stays. His most recent stay at the Burlington Health & Rehab facility came with a $7500 bill. Multiple rescue and transport bills, and funeral costs are yet to be known.
During this time, his wife Linda, who runs her own furniture business, was often sacrificing the family’s income by taking time to be with, and care for, her husband. Linda is also the primary care provider to her paraplegic son, who requires full time care, and her 11 year old grand daughter.
Any funds donated will go toward John’s medical expenses and funeral costs. Any additional funds raised will go toward covering the family’s unexpected loss of income.
