R.I.P. John W.

Long time TLC resident, John W. passed away in a Scottsdale hospital last Thursday morning.

He’d been on life support for several days after an impaired driver hit him on his motorcycle.

John, a resident of our sober living program, first came to TLC in 2001. He spent much of the past 15 years at TLC, both as a client and an employee.

John was a talented electrician who made many contributions to our maintenance department. When TLC had electrical problems he was there to help.

He recently worked for a private company, until health issues forced him to retire.

Our condolences to to his daughters and other family members.

John is missed by his many friends at TLC.
