Johnny was always a fun loving and kind person to my husband John and myself when ever we ran into him at Koco's Pub. Johnny and Ginny were always delightful and embraced us and my in-law (John and Joanna Kocovinos Sr.) as family. Even though we hadn't seen them in years, we thought of you often and are grateful for the fun times we shared together over the years.

Ginny we are sorry for your loss and want you to be comforted in the fact that Johnny is no longer suffering and is pain free.

I’m so sorry to hear about Johnnys passing. I remember sitting in Kocos when I was little and drinking cherry cokes with my dad and Johnny. Trips to Wildwood. Eating giant seafood meals. I cherish these memories. Sending my love to all.
