John was a longtime rotarian and had been a member of the Ontario-Walworth, Gananda (which he helped charter) and Palmyra-Macedon Rotary Clubs. A true humanitarian at heart, John’s rotary involvement included founding the Pal-Mac Interact Club, organizing medical supplies and equipment (now Intervol) to be sent to our sister city in the former Soviet Union, securing and providing a Fire Truck and medical supplies and organizing a much needed hospital on the Rosebud Indian Reservation. In addition John was a former member of the Macedon Center Volunteer Fire Department and had spent countless hours as a volunteer and courier for the American Red Cross. In his spare time John enjoyed “repurposing” anything he found. There was no such thing as junk to John. John is predeceased by his parents and sisters Barbie Deisenroth and Judy Wright. He is survived by his daughters Joelle (Ken) Springer and Bethany (Bradley) McGeary; son Jacob Deisenroth; sister Jean (Bob) Wells; brother Jerold Deisenroth; longtime companion Sally Shankman; grandchildren Logan, Kayla, Lily, Cole, Cora, Max, Jace and Eli and many nieces and nephews.
