John Gagnon passed away peacefully at the age of 28 on May 7, 2019 in Clearwater, Florida.
John proudly served our country in the U.S. Coast Guard and was honorably discharged after 6 years of service. He was an honor graduate of USF, majoring in Physical Therapy. He thrived on helping people overcome their physical limitations and helping others.
He is survived by his father, Greg Gagnon; mother, Hye Young Park; sister, Jesica Gagnon and beloved girlfriend, Kristin Shambaugh.
When we think of John, we remember his kind, loving, and compassionate nature and his delightful sense of humor. He was a wonderful young man and will be dearly missed by all.
