Remembering a man who helped others by continuing his mission.

Share

For many who lose a loved one, honoring their memory can mean designing a mission to help others. For the family and friends of John Fiore, that is most certainly true.

John Fiore died in the crash of Flight 3407.  He dedicated his life to his family and his country, spending 30 years serving our country in both the United States Marine Corps and the United States Air Force. He fought in Vietnam, Desert Storm, and had 2 tours of duty in the Iraqi War.

John always had a special place in his heart for children, which is why his family is continuing to help children in his name.

Every year, they have a golf tournament to raise money. John’s nephew, Ron Aughtmon says this event is very special to a great deal of people, “Proceeds from the tournament will again go to The Ronald McDonald House of Buffalo. We have been able to raise $125,500 in our first seven years, including $21,500 in 2016.”

In addition in 2016, they raised $2700 for the Nathan Brundage and Brundy’s Brigade to help in his battle against brain cancer. That is a cause close to my heart as Nate was very special to me.

It’s amazing that in seven years they have raised $132,200. All to help others.

The 8th annual John J. Fiore Golf Tournament is August 12, 2017 at Willowbrook Golf Course in Lockport.
