The Free Medical Clinic Founder, Dr. John Auxier died Thursday, August 27 at his home, as his loving wife, Mary Lou, continued to care for him. John’s vision and passion helped people in need have medical care with over 40,000 patient appointments in Anderson, Morgan, and Roane Counties over 10 years. This is a testimony to the compassion John had for his neighbors in need.
The FMC family will miss him greatly as we continue John’s vision in helping serve unmet medical care needs with grace, compassion, mercy, hope, and love. His spirit lives on through FMC.
Dr. Robin Textor the FMC Board President says, “John was a brilliant scientist, a very successful entrepreneur and a caring and generous human being. Charlotte and I were fortunate to have known him.”
John was able to live to see the 10th Year Anniversary of FMC as we celebrated on August 15 at The Bash. The FMC Family is sad to lose our Founder and ready to carry on his mission that he so lovingly planted in the heart of the FMC. Our prayers go out to Mary Lou, his wife, during this time of loss. May God bless the many seeds of love planted by John Auxier as his life is used to have a positive impact on the lives of others for many years to come through the FMC work.
