IN LOVING MEMORY OF JOHN LAGADIN
DECEMBER 29, 1937 – MAY 3, 2020
John touched so many lives throughout his life with his gentleness, kindness, and welcoming nature. Many who knew John, even for a short time, have said that he left an indelible impression on them.
What intrigued John more than the vision was the potential return to the community. John saw the value in the partnership with the local Lions Club and the financial impact that would be delivered to the Community; to date well over 1 Million dollars has been donated back into the Community. As one of the four founding partners, John’s role was invaluable. Aside from the early financing commitment, it was John’s vision to create the Limited Partnership that inevitably assisted him in completing the vision.
