John A. Kunicki, 76, of Haddonfield, NJ, passed away peacefully at home on January 2nd, 2021.

“Jack”, as he was known, was born in Camden, NJ on August 14, 1944, the only son of the late Adam and Ellen (nee Jameson) Kunicki. He is predeceased by his parents and loving Aunt and Uncle, Anna Mae and George Getley of North Cape May, NJ.

Jack graduated from St. Joseph’s High School in Camden, NJ before serving in the U.S. Army as an intelligence analyst at the Pentagon during the Cuban Missile Crisis. He continued his public service as a Police Officer, rising in rank to Sergeant, with the Collingswood Police Department. After retiring from the Police Department, he pursued a life-long interest in Real Estate as an agent and broker, then various roles in the Mortgage and private security industries. He was also a member of FOP lodge #76 and American Legion Post #38.

Jack’s greatest joy in life was his family. He is survived by his loving wife and best friend of 55 years, whom he met playing drums in the band at an Army dance in Washington DC, Mary Ann (nee Chickson). He is also survived by his loving daughter Deborah Quinton, grand-daughter Allison Sharlow, and son-in-law Daniel Quinton whom he loved and fussed after in equal parts. His extended family of brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law (Lara Buglio of Livingston, NJ, Rosemary Quinn of Scranton, PA, Jack and Isabel Gilroy of Horseheads, NY and Kathy Chickson of Scranton, PA), nieces, and nephews will miss him dancing the night away at family weddings and his many friends will miss his gregarious personality and sense of humor.

I knew him as Jack. We were both drummers in the St. Joe's High School band and were in the SJHS Senior graduating class of '62.
I remember him as a friendly, happy, easy going fun guy. We walked home from school together now and then. Bumped into him a couple of times while he was a Collingswood Police Officer and he was still the same guy, friendly as ever. I'm happy to have known him.

I went to dinner at Jack and MaryAnn's and Jack was making homemade pizza. He was shocked I had no clue how to do it. That night was my first lesson, followed by a pizza stone and precise directions right down to the NJ Tomato's (nothing else would suffice) for my Birthday! I have been making my own pizza according to Jack ever since. I will miss his humor and ever loving warmth. God bless and RIP
