    John was always there whenever you needed him. It was never about the struggles he was going through but rather what he could do for you. John loved to cook and share with all our families, whether it be a traditional holiday dish like baccala or a family get together with bar-be-que. Thank you for always looking after my mom & dad. I know how much they loved you. Brandon will miss his Uncle John so very much. And, John, know that we will always be there for Maria, Rich & Gianna. Rest in peace John. We will miss you forever. Love, Joanne, Brian & Brandon.

John I hope you know how much you meant to so many. I hope you know how hard it is on all of us to say goodbye and I hope you know you will always be so much more then just my brother in law. You never complained it was never about never said why me…you just kept going… everything you did you did for my sister and your kids. To the very end.They were your world and I could have never dreamed of a more perfect husband for my sister then you. I truly believe you were born for just this… to be a husband and father . You did everything right, John. You set the bar way high !!! It’s just not fair. It’s not !!!! You should be here. I know in my heart you will walk beside my sister my nephew and my niece and I know if anyone will make there presence known when they need you most it will be you. You were a fighter John. You beat this….you did. You just got tired and it was time for you to rest. We will take it from here John…don’t worry I know I may not be able to take the pain away or the big hole left in the hearts of my sister and the kids but I promise we all will be right here with them helping them get through….I love you John and i am so honored and blessed I got to be your sister in law ❤️ Xoxo

    I am so sad to hear about John’s passing. He always put others first in all he did. John was a great colleague and team player, always providing support and solutions to technical problems as part of our team at Passaic County Community College. No task was impossible; he always came through. My thoughts and prayers go to his family. John, Rest In Peace. You will be missed.
