John was born in Tribil Superiore, Italy.
He was predeceased by his mother when John was at a young age, his dad, and a very special four year old little cousin who was so dear to him and our son Ricky at 10 years of age.
He is survived by his loving wife Ann Marie and daughter Rene, grandchildren; Zachary, Nicolas, sisters; Irma, Marcella, Antonia, Liliana all in Italy and Gina in Belgium.
John was a very gifted man, loved working with wood and he was always willing and ready to help people.
You have been greatly loved and will be missed so much!!

When I’m Gone
When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel my last weary mile
Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned
And remember only the smile
Forget unkind words I have spoken Remember some good I have done Forget that I ever had heartache And remember I’ve had loads of fun
Forget that I’ve stumbled and blundered
And sometimes fell by the way Remember I have fought some hard battles And won, ere the close of the day
Then forget to grieve for my going
I would not have you sad for a day But in summer just gather some flowers And remember the place where I lay
And come in the shade of evening When the sun paints the sky in the west Stand for a few moments beside me And remember only my best
