Dawson, John Richard (Featured)  
John Richard Dawson John Richard Dawson died at his home in Long Beach, California, on Saturday, July 8, 2017, bowing out to pancreatic cancer. He was surrounded by his beloved partner of nearly 27 years, James "JC" Miller, and several longtime friends. You did not have to know John to say a prayer of thanksgiving for his life, and for his peaceful journey as he transitioned to the next one. John was born on June 8, 1945 in Brooklyn, New York. John attended Catholic schools for his entire education – St. John Cantius Elementary, and then completed high school at St. Joseph Franciscan Seminary in Pulaski, Wisconsin. After graduation, John joined the Franciscan Friar Brotherhood in Pulaski for a period of ten years. After leaving the Brothers, he moved back to New York and obtained his Masters Degree in Social Work from SUNY at Albany. He worked as a clinical social worker in New York and California in the field of Geriatrics, Addictions, and as a private practice therapist. He moved to Long Beach, California in 1989 to work in the field of HIV/AIDS. For ten years, John was employed by the City of Long Beach Health Department coordinating the Early Intervention Program for HIV/AIDS. He then became the coordinator of Case Management Services at the CARE Program at St. Mary Hospital in Long Beach. He retired from that position in January of 2011, and continued to volunteer there after retirement. John faced his own demon of addiction to alcohol and became a grateful member of Alcoholics Anonymous in 1974, remaining an active member until he passed. John lived his life in service to others. He used his expertise in social work to help those suffering from addiction, and those with AIDS. He had an indelible impact on every life he touched. John is survived by his life partner J.C. Miller of Long Beach, his sister and brother-in-law Michele and Mark Melillo of Rockville Centre, New York, Nieces Katherine Clark and Elizabeth Morel; many beloved cousins in New York, and innumerable friends in both across the country and world, who will keep him close in their hearts, and mourn his loss, always. A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, August 6, 2017 at 2 pm at the home he shared with JC Miller. In lieu of flowers, John would be honored if you contribute to the Franciscan Friars of Pulaski, Wisconsin, or your local AIDS food bank, in his name.
