John Vajdic, 59, passed away on October 10, 2012, ending his gallant fight against cancer. He was a La Jolla resident since 2009 and loved living here. Pursuing his passion for running, he ran 17 marathons including The Boston Marathon twice. During a brief remission he ran The San Francisco Marathon in July 2012.
He was on the cutting edge of computer component design work that is changing our lives. He was sought after and worked for leading companies in the computer design industry.
John enjoyed life, had the hardiest laugh, and felt so fortunate to have his wonderful Inna.
John will be missed by his wife, Inna; his brother, Paul Vajdic; his sisters, Sandra Dull, Vicki Jacquas, Ruth Ann Swannell, Mary Ellen Gontaryk and Joan Elgin; and many nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews.
On Tuesday, October 16, 2012, a loving gathering of family and friends celebrated his life.
