CHICAGO - A Florida man who grew up in the Utica area made news when he surprised his boyfriend with a marriage propsal while taking photos with actress Brie Larson.

John Chambrone, who attended Whitesboro High School and Mohawk Valley Community College, was at the Ace Comic Con with Richard Owen taking photos with Larson, star of "Captain Marvel" and other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. During the photo shoot Chambrone dropped to one knee and proposed to Owen, which stunned him and Larson. Owen accepted on the spot, to the delight of Larson and onlookers.
