Passing of Our Brother, John Gaines

It is with a heavy heart that we’re passing along the news that our brother, John Gaines, passed away yesterday morning(5-18-2014) while fighting cancer at MD Anderson in Houston, TX. The family is currently making arrangements for John’s last flight back home to Spokane, WA. Once we have more information we will pass this along to you.

I want to thank those of you who donated last week to help John’s family with arrangements to move him back home to Washington. Unfortunately his health deteriorated too quickly to move him while he was still alive, but those funds will now be used to help the family with his final arrangements.

Our thoughts and prayers are with John’s daughter Rachel and the rest of his family and friends.

In Solidarity,
