MADISON - John Brendan Hallinan Primm died July 24, 2013 when he was struck by a car while riding his bike.

He was born Jan. 2, 1991 to Patricia Hallinan and John Primm of Madison, Wisc.

He is survived by his parents, his sister Meghan Primm (Bennett Robinson) of St. Louis Park, Minn. and the love of his life, Allie LoBue of Madison, Wisc. His grandmothers, Eleanor Hallinan of Washington, Ill. and Carol Primm of Ocala, Fla., nine aunts (Mary, Jane, Kathleen, Gail, Joan, Terri, Debbie, Joyce and Anne), six uncles (John, Jack, Mark, Mike, and Joe), and sixteen cousins (Gennie, Mike, David, Matthew, Dave, Chris, Simon, Sam, Phil, Audrey, Dan, Erin, Nate, Mary, Katy and Joe) also survive.
