John C Jurbala, Sr was a proud father of 5 children and a faithful husband to his wife Juanita of 59 years. John went to his final resting place on January 1st, 2014 after a long battle with lung cancer. John's story is so remarkable because in his life time of 85 years he was diagnosed with 3 different types of caners. These cancers were all primary cancers: colon, prostate and lung. He was first diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer at the age of 67 and was told he only had another 6 months to live but he beat that cancer and lived an additional 18 yrs. At age 75 he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and at age 80 he was diagnosed with lung cancer. He was a strong man that took each cancer diagnosis with courage and decided to try and fight it. He did so with his body in sub-optimal health as he battled chronic high blood pressure as well as chronic kidney disease. He tried even in the end to be brave for the sake of his children. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
