John is a proud graduate of Bergen Catholic and Dayton University.
Help us see John’s legacy live on!
He had envisioned a covered patio behind the firehouse where members would be able to have family BBQs or even just sit and have a hamburger after a Sunday morning drill. The setting would be very laid back and welcoming; perhaps some flowers or bushes to represent his love for gardening. We all know John had a deep love for his numerous dogs over the years, so we will include a station with a dog bowl for water and food in memory of Moe, Sybil, Peaches, Murphy, Hagen, Sophie and Grady who is still with us.
Our goal is for the project to be completed by July 4th, 2018 with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Please continue to check this page for updates.
Your monetary contribution will help support the cost of building the patio, including labor, pavers, plantings, indirect lighting, a covering/tent, and a barbecue. Please know that no amount is too small and greatly appreciated. All donations are fully tax deductible.
In advance, many thanks for your generosity and support for John’s Memorial.
