John was instrumental in the development of the Chester Creek Trail. A proposed trail that has been in the works since 1991, more than a decade before SEPTA transferred ownership of the right of way to the County. And while he will not be able to see his vision come to fruition, he knew that the plans were finalized and that construction will begin later this year.
According to his obituary on Legacy.com - "At John's request, please make memorial gifts to the American Cancer Society (www.cancer.org), the American Lung Association (www.lung.org), or the ASPCA (www.aspca.org)."
On behalf of the Staff and Board of the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, our deepest condolences go out to John's family for their sad loss
