Mr. John T. Esposito, Sr., better known as “Papa John”, age 89, passed away on Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018 after an extended illness.
Mr. Esposito was born on August 21, 1928 in Brooklyn, New York to the late Thomas Esposito, Jr. and Alice Cusato Esposito. He is preceded in death by his wife; Constance Esposito and two daughters; Denise and baby Constance Noelle. John and Connie were married, worked, and raised their family in New York. John retired from J.D. Posillico and they began their new retirement life in Jacksonville, Florida. After only four years, Connie lost her battle with cancer but John made good friends, traveled, and was present in his children’s and grandchildren’s lives until his illness left him unable to resume his busy life. John will be remembered as an excellent dancer up and down the East coast, always dressed for the occasion, loved playing golf, and lived life to the fullest. Papa John never met a stranger and was fondly described as a “character” by all who knew him.
Survivors include a son, John and spouse of Jupiter, FL; a daughter, Annette and spouse of New Bern, NC; a son-in-law, Mark of Wesley Chapel, FL; six grandchildren, a grand-daughter in-law, and two great grandchildren.
