John E Giusti (November 4, 1948-May 9, 2018) of Portland fought a heroic battle with cancer for 13 years, but it was his heart that ended his journey on this earth. Cancer was not Johnís only battle. John was a proud member of the United States Army and received a Silver Star Honorable Service Medal from the State of Maine and a Purple Heart recipient in the Vietnam War. Though wounded in action and undergoing multiple surgeries John did not stop working. John went on to work twenty years for the United States Postal Service where he made countless lifelong friends. John enjoyed playing poker, fishing, cribbage, spending time with his friends and family, and playing Scrabble with his wife of forty-three years Judie.
