September 19, 1942 – September 23, 2020
John Philip Medeiros, 78, of Morrisville, NC, peacefully succumbed to health complications from COPD and heart issues on Wednesday, September 23, 2020.
John was born in Fall River, MA on September 19, 1942. He graduated from Somerset High School in 1960. He was married to Pauline Genga of Derby, CT on May 3, 1969; they were married 45 years and had two children. John is preceded in death by his wife, Pauline.
John enjoyed a 30+ year career with the Angelo's / Curtis / Tedeschi supermarket and convenience store chain. He held various roles throughout his career, ranging from employee to district manager. After leaving that role, he worked for Emerson Swann, a plumbing supply business, until his retirement in 2013. Summer weekends were spent in the backyard by the pool, grill tools in hand. John's kids and their families would return home often for swimming, barbecues, and endless games of Scrabble.
After spending his entire life in Massachusetts, and more than 45 years in Stoughton, John moved to North Carolina in 2015 to live with his daughter and her family. There he rediscovered his love for cribbage and joined the Raleigh Cribbage Club along with his daughter, and gained many new, good friends.

I am so sorry to know of John's passing. I think of him at family gatherings tending toward the periphery: quietly imbibing togetherness and the joy expressed by those around him, but welcoming to anyone who wants to stick around for a chat. He will be missed, and I am so very sorry for your loss.
