Victim: John David Akerstrom

John David Akerstrom was an electrical engineer who lived in Medina, Ohio with his wife Pam and two children, Jennie and Jared.
John's favorite way to spend time at home was with his adored family. He also left behind his parents John and Emily Akerstrom and his sister Nancy Graham.

Nancy described John by saying "There didn't seem to be anything that John couldn't do well - he was creative with his hands, he was musical, he was athletic, and he was very intelligent."
