John was a successful Realtor in the community for more than fifty years. He also spent endless hours working in his yard every summer and it showed; passers-by always commented that it was the best yard on the street. But what John enjoyed more than anything was the love of family. He loved his children, and adored his grandchildren, and was very proud of the successful adults they became.
His Funeral Mass will be held Monday, March 20, 2023, 11:00am at Parish of the Holy Family, 4100 Lyell Road, followed by his burial in the Veterans’ Section of Holy Sepulchre Cemetery with full military honors.
John had been selected to participate in an upcoming Honor Flight mission this spring and was so looking forward to it. To honor him, please consider a donation to Honor Flight Rochester, Inc., PO Box 23581, Rochester, NY 14692 or honorflightrochester.org.
