It is with great sadness we share the news that John passed away unexpectedly on July 12th after suffering a heart attack and not recovering.

Over the years, John has made many friends while posting photos of his hikes with his beloved companion, Kelley. John was not only a skilled photographer, but he also penned a blog called Hiking in Maine with Kelley.

John loved his hikes and there was a time he could easily cover 20 miles. He was at his happiest in nature. Just last week he was at Essex Woods and Caribou Bog- two favorite spots for taking photos and posting them for others to enjoy.

John was a one-of-a kind soul, generous with his photos, as well as sharing his seeds, plants, vegetables, gardening tools, and anything gardening related-you name it.

Before retiring to Maine John was a social worker and a counselor.

John leaves behind his brother, Tom Fiedler; his ex-wife and dear friend, Mary Ford; and a host of friends both here and abroad. The world will not be the same without John's gentle spirit.
