John Chiavelli passed away peacefully on February 9, 2020 with his family by his side. John was born on May 30, 1946, in the Bronx, NY, to Josephine and Geraldo Chiavelli and was the oldest of three children. He married RoseMarie Ungolo on May 28, 1967, in the Bronx, NY. Left to honor and remember him are his two children, John Chiavelli and Michele (Anthony) Caterino; five grandchildren, John Chiavelli, Jake Chiavelli, Jenna Chiavelli, Joey Caterino, and Michael Caterino; and his brother Jerry Chiavelli. John was preceded in death by his parents, wife, RoseMarie and sister, Annette. John worked tirelessly during his life to be the consummate provider that he was.

I won't forget when you bought me my first car when I was in high school.I took mom for a ride in it.I can't forget your perspective on certain things. You thought about respect,hardship, and did it all with such integrity and laughter, always lending a helping hand. You will be missed and loved. R.I .P

To my friend Johnny Scar. Thank you so much for the years of laughing and joking, hanging by the pool, and busting Phyllis's chops and many dinners Hazel made for both of us. You will be so missed and always in our hearts.

John was a wonderful soul. So generous and always had a smile to give you. I can’t recall how many times my breakfast was paid for at the Park Ride diner. John liked to pay it forward...a lot. Our sincere condolences to the Chiavelli family. Xo
