John Cheever Obituary
John David Cheever, age 50, passed away at his home after a brave three year battle with primary brain cancer. John was a Director at SRAM Corporation for 25 years. He held many titles there and had an incredible, unique career with his SRAM Family. He is either directly responsible for or has contributed significantly to a long list of SRAM patents. John loved to fish, boat, ride vintage motorcycles, work in his machine shop, play guitar, and watch the sunsets disappear. John is preceded in death by Dorothy (Blume) Cheever, Fred Cheever, Roman Sendera, Mary Jinkinson, and his beloved dog Winston. He is survived by his wife Janice (Sendera) Cheever, parents Thomas and Carol Cheever, and his siblings Thomas, Caryn, and Carey (Udziela) Cheever. I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to Dr. Jeffery J. Raizer, Dr. James P. Chandler, Dr. MaryAnne H. Marymont, and all the faculty and staff at the Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute for the care they had given John. I will also be forever grateful to the Cancer Support Center for the help they have given John and I throughout this journey. A celebration of John's life will be held in Illinois sometime in the spring. Memorial contributions may be made to The Cancer Support Center www.cancersupportcenter.org (708) 798-9171, Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute www.braintumorinstitute.org, or World Bicycle Relief www.worldbicyclerelief.org/donate in John's memory.
