Many great memories were made over my lifetime with my uncle John! As a young girl watching roller derby with him, eating cheesesteaks then as a teenager riding his little dirt Bike and just laughing at his jokes to being an adult and playing cards, laughing the whole time while he talked “bad” as aunt Maryanne would be saying “John!” , taking me to gas station to play poker machines etc. but that LAUGH! So contagious! We will miss you! Say hi to my dad and aunt Maryanne for me! Love you ❤️
