John was the pride of the Saint Francis Engineering Department. He was a loyal and hard working member that always made sure our contractors did their work completely. He was an excellent carpenter that was always there to lend a helping hand, no matter what the trade or challenge we faced. I considered John a friend and a fellow Eagle Scout that always did what he thought was right. He would always talk about his children and how proud he was of them. Saint Francis Hospital and the world is a much better place because of John. I want to express my sincere condolences to John’s family. He will truly be missed.

So sorry for your loss. John played High School Soccer for me and he was always fun to be with. We continued a friendship after High School when he played Basketball in the Adult Ed basketball. My prayers go out to your family.

Hello, I am sorry about John's passing. He used to babysit me and my siblings. I remember him as being very generous and always having a smile on his face. He gave me a Seabee sweatshirt that I think I wore for the entire second grade and gave us rides in his MG. He wil be missed. Sincerely, Ann Generali
