September 3, 1954March 8, 2018

John C. Pyzza passed away March 8, 2018, at the age of 63 years after a battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife of 36 years, Deborah, and his sons Jake (Pamela), Austin (Gabriela), and Colin (Nicole), and grandson Edward. John will also be forever remembered by his numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family and dear friends. John dedicated his life to being a mentor and role model. He spent nearly 10 years working with local students in the theater program at Washingtonville High School. Affectionately known as “Doc”, he helped shape countless lives and motivated many to pursue their dreams, even when they seemed out of reach. The last years of John's life were spent growing the family farm into the largest conifer nursery in Orange County, NY. A true labor of love, the family-run farm continues to grow and give back to the community. John’s devotion to and sacrifices made for his family will never be forgotten by those who carry on his legacy - cherish family, do what you love, and work hard. A private memorial service will be held at a later date. Memorial donations in memory of John can be made to the American Cancer Society or Orange Regional Medical Center Spagnoli Family Cancer Center.
