Obituary for John Anthony Cebuhar

Cebuhar, John Anthony

Age 68, passed away on Saturday, December 15. One of four sons, John was born at Woodlawn Hospital in Chicago, IL on February 11, 1950, to the late Charles “Ky” & Betty Cebuhar (nee Brennan). In 1976, while working for the City of Philadelphia, he was involved in the significant undertaking of coordinating the numerous volunteers working to make the celebration of our nation’s bicentennial a success. In 1985, as a student attending Governors State University, John received the Student Laureate of the Lincoln Academy of Illinois, presented by then governor Thompson. In 1986 he received a BA with high honors and in 1999 the Community Service Award “in recognition of his countless outreach and advocacy efforts on behalf of people with HIV and AIDS”. Then in 2005, he earned a Master of Health Science in Addictions Studies. Throughout his professional life, he worked in government and for non-profit organizations on behalf of people struggling with addictions and HIV disease. Upon retirement, he continued his advocacy by helping family and friends obtain much needed social services. He was always there for someone in need. John is survived by his partner of almost 30 years, Kevin Hall, and a significant extended family who all feel the tremendous loss of such a loving, giving and compassionate man. In memory of John, please make a contribution to the Center on Halsted at centeronhalsted.org/donatenow.
