are you sure this isn't John Cheeseman??
I wonder if your spelling is wrong, I grew up with a guy that owned a scuba diving shop that age that area by the name of Cheeseman.

It is the same John Cheesman (pronounced Cheeseman). He is doing better - recovering at OHSU in Portland.

John took his life after fighting depression for so long. He was a wonderful person and leaves behind a wonderful wife and his children.

Anne: Do you know if there will be a funeral service for John? He taught me to scuba dive, and we shared many great dive trips together, with mutual friends. I would like to pay my respects, as would many others of the local dive community.

To insinuate that John left us because his life and wife weren't enough for him is apalling. He was sufferring from severe depression and left behind three beautiful children that he loved beyond belief. Mental illness took his life. He did not reject his family because they weren't adequate. Your comment was very insensitive and required a response even after all this time
