John Walsh, co-founder COPD and Alpha-1 foundations, dies at 68 - Miami Herald

Monday, March 13, 2017

Harvard, a gene therapy program for the lung and liver at University of Florida and University of California at San Diego, and an Alpha-1 registry at the Medical University at South Carolina. The nonprofits also have raised millions for research. “Our mission is to put ourselves out of business,” Walsh told the Miami Herald in 2005. “We want to cure Alpha-1.”Here was a man who was going to make big changes in the way the world thought about COPD and in my life as a patient. He was determined to draw attention to the disease, to erase the stigma of being diagnosed, to encourage patients to become active and to become involved in research.Karen Deitemeyer’s post on the COPD Foundation website.A year earlier, in 2004, Walsh had the same mission when he co-founded and became the first president of the COPD Foundation in Coconut Grove, with a second office in Washington. He followed with the COPD Advocacy program and the Congressional COPD Caucus to push for more funding for research and patient access. In 2014, Walsh, who lived in Coral Gables, was elected to the National Health Council’s board of directors.“John was a former Army Ranger. Though he was afraid of heights, he volunteered for Airborne School and became a paratrooper, because parachute jumping out of planes is a required skill for a ranger. That should tell you a lot about the strength of his character, will and commitment to mission,” said Marcia Ritchie, the Alpha-1 Foundation’s chief operating officer.“John had that astonishing power that people get when they have high energy and passion for something and a willingness to devote their life to it,” Campbell said. “He was starting from a tiny patient base. He had no power base. Started with little funding. But he built the core organization of the Alpha-1 world and then the core foundation of the COPD world. That’s an astonishing number of achievements in a little over 20 years.”Walsh is survived by his wife Diane, daughter Linda, granddaughter Lily, his brother Fred, and sisters Susan Ferro and Judy Walsh. The family plans a private celebration of life.

Lake Murray boat crash victims were dedicated outdoorsmen - The State

Animals you normally wouldn’t think of eating,” he said, laughing. “He always sent you home with bags of fish, squirrel, frog legs.” ‘The life of the party’Lanier graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2011 with a degree in biology, a USC spokesman said. Before that, he played baseball in high school and for USC-Sumter, according to his obituary, part of which was written by his sister, Blythe Lanier. “I am finding some sort of peace in knowing God will give you all the deer, turkeys and fish in his heaven,” she wrote, adding that in looking at people’s social media posts about her brother, it was difficult to find a picture of her brother not smiling. “He simply was the life of the party,” she wrote. “The party around here just won’t ever be the same without him.” The last time multiple people died at the same time on Lake Murray was in May 2010, when four people were killed in two separate boating accidents. Steven Kranendonk of Irmo was released from prison in January after his conviction in Richland County for reckless homicide in a crash that killed two women in one of those collisions, state probation officials said Monday. Kranendonk served nearly half of a 10-year sentence, with one day forgiven for each day served without disciplinary problem, officials said.Two of his requests for parole were denied before his release three months ago, officials said.In the other crash, Steven Miller was sentenced to 18 months probation and assigned 120 hours of community service after pleading guilty to breach of the peace in a September 2014 plea settlement.Two friends riding on the boat Miller drove died in the crash. Relatives of both victims urged leniency, calling it a tragedy among friends.Funeral servicesServices for longtime friends Mark Daniel Phillips and Christopher Shawn Lanier will be held hours apart on Thursday.Lanier’s service is scheduled for 3 p.m. at Fair Lawn United Methodist Church, 9203 Wilson Boulevard in Columbia. Rev. Scott Bratton is officiating.Phillips’ sevice will be 6:30 p.m. at Sandy Level Baptist Church, 408 Blythewood Road in Blythewood. Rev. Dan Tuggy is officiating.
