I was a patient of Dr. Coletta's for many years(Dr.LaMaida's before that),but I moved away in 1997. I just happened to look him up and found out this sad news. You have my sincere condolences in your loss. He was always so very kind to my son + I.

Uncle John (and all the rest of the family) always made me feel so welcome and as part of the family (even before I was). I have gotten to be part of an amazing Italian culture, which is such a huge part of his home - from the Italian operas to the wonderful family (and friends) meals, . I have so many great memories of which he is a major part. Thank you Uncle John and Family. Uncle John, you will really be missed.

Dear Coletta Family,

Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of Dr. Coletta. I am sorry that I am unable to offer my personal condolences, but I am out of the country at this time.... I was a patient of Dr. Coletta's for over 30 years and always felt comforted by him. I remember very well his smile as we discussed family and Italian heritage. Dr. Coletta will be missed by all who knew him.... AL Farinacci
