You have my deepest sympathy and unwavering support. Wishing you peace, comfort, courage, and lots of love through this difficult time. My heart goes out to you all. Johnny will be forever loved and forever missed by so many.
I worked with John’s father, also named John, for many years at the FAA. “Big” John always talked about his son and the skills he had. He was a proud father. We lost Big John earlier this year, and now this loss.
My prayers go out to John’s mom Barbara, his wife Noelle and his two children, and his brother Jason. God bless this family.
So sorry to hear of John’s passing. My sympathies to all. Your family will be in my prayers.

Spending time with you Johnny, was an honor, first in Maine, by the lake with your mom and dad, and your future bride Noelle and the Bevilacqua’s family, and then in France, visiting places, also in Netherlands with mutual friends. Being around you, for us, meant having lots of fun. Always! We will cherish all these special moments forever. Your wedding with Noelle was one of a kind, we will never forget it! one of the most beautiful wedding.. We love you. We know you are in peace fishing with all the people you love down here and watching for your beautiful family too. Big hugs to your dad up there which always said: “it’s easier to do things right than to explain why you did it wrong!” One of my favorite sayings thanks to your papa !!
