Sorry to report that COL John Temperilli departed on his final flight at 11:45, 26 Feb 08. John fought to the last, but it is a blessing that he can now relax and enjoy life in his new surroundings in the company of the Lord that he followed and supported throughout his life. A richly deserved reward for a wonderful caring man who was a good loyal friend to all. He will be missed, not only by his loving family, but by all whose life he touched and upon whom he had such a positive influence — and there were many.
John was a great DUSTOFFer – https://dustoff.org/john-temperilli/ – First commander to take a DUSTOFF unit to Vietnam – great friend and a true Gentleman!
God Bless John.
