My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your entire family on the passing of my cousin, Johnny. Although I did not see him much, I have pleasant memories of him at family gatherings, i.e., his wonderful sense of humor and his willingness to dance with everyone. Johnny can now rest in peace with his beloved wife, Anna, who has been waiting for him. They are now together once again. Johnny will be miss!

Cousin, Angela

I was not able to attend the services for you John, but I watched it all on my phone. The very beautiful words that were spoken of you were amazing. The reading from your family members were also wonderful. Cynthia wrote something about you and Linda read it at the Podium. She was reading it beautifully, but she could no longer hold back the tears 😢

The music was so beautifully sung and the songs were simply amazing. I have never attended a funeral ending in Amazing Grace. It was a cheerful ending in leaving the church. It was somewhat like the beautiful SMILE you always had on your face😍

May you always Rest In Peace you Wonderful Man
Love Lorraine

John, or shall I say Mr. Sunshine ☀️
I have known you for many years and you always had the brightest smile on your face. We had so many good times at my brothers house that was formerly mine! (LoL) I always remember all the laughs we had with You and Anna ♥️♥️

Right now you will be together with Anna, and you both will be able to laugh and look down on us.

Now there is a full choir with John's passing. He joins his fellow choir members, Mike, Judy and of course Anna, the love of his life.
He will surely be missed by all. He sang so beautifully along with his friend Mike at out Italian dinners.

He was a wonderful person who was always smiling and happy to talk to all.

My deepest sympathy to the family. Rest in peace John. He were truly an angel on earth.

My cousin Johnny always had a smile on his face. His laugh was so infectious! He came to live with my maternal grandparents when I was 5 years old. We lived in a 2 family home and all of us shared many times together and have so many happy memories with him. He was always part of my family. I loved him very much and am so sad that I will not hear his voice again. But, I am happy that he is in Paradise with Anna.
