My thoughts and prayers are with you, Maryanne and family, at this sad time. I met John over 30 years ago. He was such a kind thoughtful person even as a teenager! His smile and warmth could light up a room. He will be missed by many!

So sorry for your loss. John was a wonderful person who will greatly be missed. We had many memorable times thought out the years both at Mystic Post Office were we 1st meat 21 years ago and then at the Uncasville PO. He was loved by all and for his caring nature and his wonderful personality.

To all of John's family, you have my sincere condolences. In the time that I worked at the Uncasville Post Office, it was my pleasure to know John. While always a prankster, he lightened the atmosphere in the room. He was always upbeat and willing to help when he could. And he was devoted to his family and friends, always mentioning them when he had a moment to do so. He is truly a light lost. May he rest in peace.
