It's not goodbye...

Far too many times in EMS we encounter families having to say goodbye too soon. It's something we have learned to handle...to accept as part of the job. We learned how to offer support and comfort all while maintaining that degree of professionalism.

One thing we did not learn was how to accept it when the roles are reversed. To accept the realization that we are not invincible. And when it happened to us...we had to learn how to go from the helper to the ones needing help.

On November 16, 2021 our lives changed, our world changed...our family lost a member.

John did nothing wrong...John was doing what he did best...being the helper. Unfortunately, sometimes by simply being the helper things can go wrong. John put up a great fight...but in the end it was a fight he did not win.

We lost a huge part of us that day and he will always be missing from us...but his memory will live on in the way we conduct ourselves...in the way we honor him each and every day by being the very best providers we can.

It's not goodbye John...It's we'll see you later.

This week has been about Johns loves other than being an EMT/FF.

Today though, Is Johns ONE TRUE LOVE.

Holly;

“We met and started dating in 2016 and celebrated our anniversary on John's birthday 9/18.
John has been my rock. He's been with me through 2 jobs and has always been my biggest supporter and cheerleader.
We always enjoyed each other's company, no matter where we were it was going to be fun because we had each other. I ALWAYS loved our spontaneous outings; Pride of Susquehanna, going to the arcade, our tandem bike rides and so many more.
Over the course of 5 years, John showed me what it's like to really be loved by someone.”

Thank you for sharing these memories of John during EMS week. I cried everyday as I miss him so! Holly is a fantastic and strong woman. But I also know he is watching over all EMS and fire services in East Pennsboro and smiling. Please keep John's memory by being the light and strive to be the best in the EMS Community and care for all in need. God bless. Rest easy brother..we have it from here.

"I ain’t afraid of no ghosts"…

One thing that not too many people knew about John was that he enjoyed the “Paranormal”.

Not necessarily a believer of everything and always the skeptical one… he wanted to be able to disprove or explain any findings or unusual activity. John and “his team” spent a few long nights out “hunting” ghosts. They were unofficially given the name of "Paranormal EMS" and they loved it!

The team visited nearby places such as Dromgolds Farm, The Anspach-Miller House and the Fetter house! They didn’t have their own TV show but maybe they should have.

Talk to someone you can’t see today... For John. 👻
