John first exhibited symptoms of MS in August 2003 and was formally diagnosed in June 2004. On March 20, John and his family served as ambassadors during Walk MS Sarasota, a fundraising event. A fast infection struck John two months later.
Prior to his position with Storage Spot, from 1994 to 2001, John worked in the management and real estate departments of Public Storage Inc. His participation, influence and connections in the self-storage industry were long-reaching. He was known for his great sense of humor, business acumen and dedication to family.
John is survived by his wife, Gail, and their children, Michael, Matthew and Lindsay.
