John is predeceased by his father, Michael; his sister, Shannon; and his grandparents, Carol, Richard, and John.

Born in Milford, CT, John was the first of three children to Michael and Karen. John was a social butterfly and known to many. He had many friends growing up, whom he kept for life. He loved spending his time on the beach or snowboarding down a mountain. John spent much of his adult life working in construction or starting his own extermination business. He always took pride in the work he provided.  In 2015, John welcomed his only son, Ryan, to the world with Victoria.

While John enjoyed his freedom, becoming a father was the greatest moment of his life. John was always teaching his son how to be the man of the house.  He could be found cooking, cleaning, or sweeping the front porch.  John was an amazing father, a loved son, brother and friend.

      My condolences to John’s friends and family. I never had the privilege of meeting or knowing John. I know his friend and former partner Victoria. I wish you all peace for these difficult days.
