John, 28, was the beloved son of Armand and Judith Reo, of Troy, NY. John was the youngest of five children. After spending a year at Notre Dame, he graduated from SUNY Albany, NY.
John loved his family. His three older sisters, Suzanne Swaine, Kristin Maguire, and Meghan Metzemaekers were married with children. His 8 nieces and nephews adored him and named him their “Johnny Boy.” John loved the hours he spent on the golf course or at a Yankee game with his beloved older brother, Mark, and his three brothers-in-law, John Swaine, Rich Maguire, and Dave Metzemaekers. With his dad and all the men in his family, hours were spent after golf, a good cigar and many laughs.
A few months ago, in May, John followed his brother in law, John Swaine, into the “Big Apple”. He was living with the Swaines in Larchmont, NY and working with John Swaine at Cantor Fitzgerald. A new start…a great opportunity…exciting times.
John Reo avoided any particle of life that was mean spirited. He took in the beauty of nature-took time to watch the hawk in flight or the deer stand in silence. John often used his quick wit to disarm all of his friends into howls of laughter. His search was always for peace. He quietly spread his calm manner to all who knew him. He was born a gentle soul.
People filled with hate who thought they could destroy him and others, only succeeded in opening the doors for John and his dear brother-in-law, John Swaine, to enter arm in arm into an eternity of God’s love, joy, and everlasting peace.
We will remember them always. We will love them forever.
