John Alexander Herman (also known as Dr. John or “DJ”) passed away on Jan. 14th having spent his life committed to service while spreading wit, warmth, and exuberance to everyone he met. John was a graduate of Cornell University, NYU Medical School, and became a Captain in the U.S. Air Force, 78th USAF Hospital, Hamilton Air Force Base, CA.

John also taught at UCSF for 40 years as Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine, guiding hundreds of first-year medical students to provide comprehensive medical and emotional care to low income patients. And as a cancer survivor, John volunteered at Cancer CAREpoint sharing his compassion, care, and good humor to those in Silicon Valley touched by cancer.

In 2008, John was recognized by the California State Senate with a Lifetime Achievement and Service Award for his meritorious service to humanity.

John was passionate about gardening, enjoyed hiking with his best friend Frank, traveling the world with his wife Edna, painting, and spending time with his family.
