John Chiffriller's Memorial
Organized by: Sheila Chiffriller
EVENT DATE Nov 08, 2014
The Chiffriller family experienced a great loss in the death of beloved husband, father, son, and brother, John Chiffriller. John was diagnosed with diabetes at 18 months and Lupus at 27 years old. He was disabled and was the primary caregiver until he died at the young age of 45. Although John was chronically ill, his death was unexpected.
His wife and five children, Ryan (6), Maggie (7), John (9), Winnie (12), and Erin (17), are trying their best to carry on his legacy and thrive as a family.
His family plans to host a series of events in John's honor in hopes to both celebrate his life and remember all of the wonderful memories they created together. His wife, Sheila, hopes to spend more time with their children while working two jobs to support the family.
Ultimately, Sheila would like to start a foundation in John's name to raise awareness about autoimmune diseases and provide funding for further research. Also, the family would like to create a scholarship in John's name for local graduating high school seniors.
