I am sorry for the late post. Just realized that I had not heard anything through TFD.
John lost his three-year battle with multiple myeloma cancer on Sunday, June 30, 2013. When he passed at his north Spokane home, he was surrounded by his wife Shawna and his three beautiful girls Kiley, Kasey and Ashley, along with members of his family. He was 45.
John was a 19-year veteran of the Spokane Fire Department. He served his country as a Marine and will be buried with military honors.
