Obituary for JOHN MATTHEW PARRAN

John Matthew Parran was born on June 19, 1962 in Calvert County, Maryland to Gladys M. and the late John 0. Parran. He transitioned from this life early in the morning on Saturday, September 9'" at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC after a lengthy battle with diabetes and kidney issues.
