Patrick L. John

On Wednesday, October 4, 2023 Patrick L. John, 53, of Salamanca, NY went to be home with the Lord. He passed at UPMC Chautauqua surrounded by his loving family following a short illness.

Born October 10, 1969 in Salamanca, NY, he was the son of the late Ramona Redeye John.

He was an enrolled member of the Seneca Nation of Indians and of the Hawk Clan.
