Age 49, passed away suddenly on Monday, November 30, 2009. John, "JGG" was born in Lansing, MI, on March 3, 1960, the 4th of 6 children of Roy and Mafalda Jeanne (Martelletti) Gaskin. He was married to his loving wife, Carol Erbskorn, in Lansing and was an incredibly devoted husband for over 15 years.

John also worked at Macy's (formerly Hudson's and Marshall Fields) in various capacities for 25 years. John was a member of St. Paul's Catholic Church, Owosso, MI, where his children currently attend school. He touched many lives, both in his position at Sparrow, and in his personal life with his close family and many friends. John had a huge heart, a generous soul, and a kind word for everybody. He was known everywhere he went for his loving and caring demeanor, and especially for his big hugs. Everybody's day was made better by a hug and greeting from John, and none of our lives will be the same without him.
