John R. Gass, Jr.

John R. Gass, Jr. died at the age of 91 on May 29, 2018 in Englewood, Florida. He was the oldest of four children born to John R. Gass and Alice I. (Allen) Gass in Toledo, Ohio on July 18, 1926. 
John was drafted into the Army, where he served his Country during World War II stationed in the Philippines. Following the war's end, he attended college at Denison University in Granville, Ohio graduating in 1950. He immediately went on to earn an advanced degree in Hospital Administration at the University of Pittsburgh.
John began his career in hospital administration at the Indiana University School of Medicine. Over the next 20 years he served as Administrator for multiple hospitals throughout Indiana and Ohio. In 1974 John established Fort Myers Community Hospital. He then focused his energy and vision on opening the Englewood Community Hospital, which he did in 1985. In 1991, John retired from Englewood Community Hospital and from his successful career in hospital administration.
John was preceded in death by his wife, Patricia Mathisen-Gass. He is survived in death by his three sisters, Nancy Campbell of Arizona, Mary (and Tom) Johnson of Michigan, and Margaret (and Richard) Wurst of Ohio. John had three children who include his daughter, Judy (and Kimm) Singer of Colorado, his sons David (and Linda) Gass of Florida and John, III (and Karen) Gass of Oregon as well as 21 grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren.
John was always eager to share stories about his love for rescuing local animals and his passion for boating and fishing with all who would listen. We will always carry his memory in our hearts.
