"Full Story Here"

John Bieniewicz was a man who lived life to the fullest. He had a passion for his family, a passion for the kids at Mott Children's Hospital, and a passion for soccer. John died doing what he loved: Officiating a soccer game.

John was a licensed soccer referee at all levels, professional, collegiate, high school and children's leagues, was the president of the Metro Detroit Soccer Officials Organization, and would often referee 3 games on a Saturday. He also took a particular interest in all the children he worked with Monday thru Friday at the pediatric dialysis center at Mott, and reveled in their improvement and happiness. But most importantly, he was a devoted family man, a proud husband and father of two boys.

The boys will miss his fatherly guidance and support but they will also miss his financial support, and we are here to help that in a small way. If you were touched by John, or merely share his love of soccer, we ask that in his name you donate to his children's futures. We thank you in advance, and wish you God's blessings. --The Friends of John Bieniewicz
