John McCain

To Be Rescheduled: A Celebration of Life

John W. McCain, July 6, 1959 – February 13, 2020

We are deeply saddened by the passing of our former chairman and CEO, John W. McCain, following his battle with glioblastoma.

Due to “social distancing” and travel guidelines issued by global health authorities, the previously scheduled March 27 celebration of John’s life is being postponed

The celebration will be rescheduled once there is more clarity and certainty about the pandemic. 

We look forward to ultimately having an in-person opportunity for family and friends 
to share stories, music and food in celebration of John’s unique humanity, 
his amazing life and the impact he had on us all.
