John McPherson, 59, passed away Saturday, July 16, 2005,
after a courageous battle
with cancer. John lived life on his terms, and left life, on his terms, in
of his beloved wife of 21 years, Kimberly
McPherson. When confronted
with death, John would say " it is, what it is " and
refused to give in and continued
the fight until the end. Kim was his rock and fought
with him, and, supported him
until the end. John and Kim were the true definition of
marriage and what it stands for.
John, a loving father, was very proud of his son, Nick
and daughter, Alyssa.
John loved people and was a total showman. He brought
life and laughter everywhere
he went. John found his ultimate employment at Today's
Limousine working with
Michael Rosenthal and Joe Kodadar. John was the most
popular recognizable chauffeur
in the Capital Region and known to many as "that limo
driver that looks like Kenny Rogers" .
John loved New York City, and was a huge fan of the New
York Giants and New York Yankees.
John's favorite times were spent with his family at
home, working on home projects,
enjoying the deck he built, swimming in the pool, or,
just sitting in the hot tub.
John's family would like to thank the Oncology staff at
the Albany Medical Center
and at the Eddy Nursing Home for caring for John in his
John was an outstanding person who was taken much too
soon and will be greatly
missed by all who knew him. We know that God must have
needed an excellent limo driver.
