John McDonald Obituary, Death – John McDonald has sadly died unexpectedly, leaving loved ones and family and the entire community in grief and sadness according to an online share. “We would like to offer our most sincere condolences to you and your family on the passing of John McDonald, who was a well-known storyteller, an author, and a long-time host of a radio show. Please accept our sincere condolences. We are devastated to have to inform you of his passing; our hearts go out to you. John McDonald, who was battling a number of different health conditions, ultimately did not prevail and passed away.
He was 78. During this difficult time, we want his wife Ann and the rest of his family to know that they are in our thoughts and prayers. They have our deepest condolences in this time of loss. During the time that I was attending law school and spending time with my family in Maine, I had my first conversation with John McDonald. At the time, I was physically present in the state. After listening to his weekend show on Newsradio WGAN in Boston, I made the decision to give him a call and have a conversation with him. I thought it would be a good opportunity to ask him some questions about the show.
Before I could even finish hanging up the phone, he told me to stop by the studio so that he could personally give me a copy of his book. He did this before I even had a chance to finish our conversation. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to take the time to thank him for his time, but circumstances prevented me from doing so. After years of being a devoted listener, I was eventually offered the chance to call into his show, and after that, I was invited to join him in person for segments as a City Councilor for the city of Portland, Maine. After that, I had the opportunity to call into his show. I will miss his witty comments while reading the news of the day, as well as his willingness to talk to any caller regardless of the point of view they hold and his passion for Cherryfield, Maine. Additionally, I will miss his willingness to talk to any caller regardless of the point of view they hold. Don’t freak out about it!”
