  1. Mike McCarthy :

    Bob – Very sorry to hear of the loss of your father. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and all your family.

  2. Andy Mangione :

    Such a beautiful, loving video tribute. I did not want it to end as I watched it with my family. I am sorry that I could not make it for the funeral, but please know that we lit a candle in honor of Uncle John at Mass this morning. Too many wonderful memories of family gatherings on Royalview in Willowick to recall. Rest in peace, Uncle John.

  3. My Dear Cousins:
    I just learned of Uncle John’s passing. Please know my prayers are with you.
    The video was VERY moving, especially seeing pictures of Grandma Lulu and Aunt Chi-Chi.
    Nothing but fun, laughter and great memories for us when we visited you in Willowick. While our dad had quite the personality, Uncle John was hands down the ringleader of this group. Fun-loving, youthful, enthusiastic, determined and focused are just a few of the words that come to mind when I think of him. The Rams, the backyard pool and his great laugh will be with me forever.
    Big Love to you.

  4. From cousin Tom, uncle John was my God father and I remember on the day of my confirmation there was a snow storm and that did not stop uncle John from being there. That was the kind of man he was. I could go on and on about how special my childhood was because of uncle John. My last recollection of uncle John was when he visited California and we played golf at LaCosta country club. He was like a kid in a candy store. Even in his passing he left behind a legacy that all of us will remember. May the Lord bring all of you peace in his absence knowing that he is with Jesus waiting for all of us. God bless
