In losing John (and Tim) their parents, lost two of their three children. John is survived by his beautiful wife of ten years, Tina and their three gorgeous children: Kathryn (7), Kristen (4), and Michael (10 months). John had an affinity for many things, golf, fine food, cigars, and spending time with friends and family. He loved Bruce Springsteen, and knew every word to every song. None greater was the love John had for his wife and children. John was a devoted father and a great husband. He loved all aspects of fatherhood, bath time, bedtime stories, and singing Amazing Grace. John adored his wife, was very proud of his daughters, and beamed when Michael was born. He brought Michael everywhere (cleaners, carwash, gas station, and food shopping). Michael still looks at John’s picture and says “DaDa”, kissing the picture between “DaDa”s!
John was a great cook. He loved making his girls breakfast, their favorite, silver dollar pancakes. John was fun-loving, quick-witted, with a great sense of humor. Weekends, John managed to squeeze in 18 holes before lunch, spending the day with his wife and children. John was loyal, kind, sensitive, caring, and protective of those he loved. He wanted his children raised in a warm, loving environment with traditional values.
We could never replace what is lost for his children; the void is too great. All we could do is try to give these children the lives their father wanted them to have. To help fulfill John’s dreams, make their future a little less uncertain, John’s sister, Carolee, established a trust fund. Anyone wishing to help make a better future for his children could send contributions to the educational trust at:
