Dear Friends and Well-wishers,
I on behalf of the John Family in Nigeria and the USA announce the passing away to eternal glory of my beloved father, Elder Macaulay Oluwafunmi John on June 1, 2010 in Lagos, Nigeria.
As some of you may be aware, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer about 16 months ago in February 2009. By God's grace, he was with me here in the USA from April - November 2009 before he returned to Nigeria. While here with my family and I, he went through a series of surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. But now he is with his Lord and savior free from the excruciating pains of cancer.
I was opportuned to speak with him yesterday evening and prayed with him just before he went into a coma from where he woke up this morning in the presence of the Savior.
We have opened an online condolence register and memorial in his honour at:

Thank you all for your prayers and support for the John Family.
Emmanuel B. John,
Silver Spring, MD, USA
