His legacy of love and kindness continues to live in the hearts of the many whose lives he touched.
We send our love and prayers to you during this very difficult and painful time in your lives.
So sorry for your loss. Thinking of your family at this really sad time!
Dear John, Amy and Becky,
Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Our son Eric has conveyed that John was always so kind to him throughout his school years. Please know that this touched us deeply to hear. He was a fine young man that was raised by two loving parents! You did the best job you could and it was evident in John's compassion and maturity. We will keep all of you in our hearts and prayers! Best Wishes,
An incredible loss -- so very sorry -- his gentle and sweet spirit will be sorely missed here in the physical. Wishing all family and friends most sincere condolences - hugs - nancy Polinchock, nfhs
Dear John, Amy, and Rebecca
What a great collection of photos. While I never met John - you can tell that he enjoyed life and was surrounded with people who loved him.
Tom and Denise Merrill.
To John Amy and family. Our hearts and prayers are with you. Please accept our deepest sympathy for your loss.
John, Amy and Rebecca,
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing John John with Sarah and the rest of our family. We saw him every day. And every day he brought laughter, joy and warmth into our home. He will always hold a special place in our hearts. We will always love him dearly.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers. My heart hurts for you all.
I didn't know John well. We were merely aquaintences at New Fairfield High School, me just a couple of years his senior.
Nonetheless, the news of his unfair, untimely death rang deep to me. I remember the last time we spoke: a happenstance encounter some time after my graduation in the center of town, where we stood casually fueling our vehicles over what seemed at the time to be passing conversation. That simple memory will linger with me for a some time as I try desperately to understand why such promising life is taken from this world in such a meaningless chance encounter of misfortune and inequity.
My sincerely heartfelt condolences extend to his loving family and friends who's emotional outreach has truly inspired me to appreciate every day that I'm given with those I hold dear.
John, I wish I could share with you now the impact you've had on me. I'm ashamed that it took your unjust death for me to truly appreciate your life, but please rest peacefully and assured knowing that my life is just one more that you've touched - no matter from how far away.
Please rest easy buddy.
You certainly deserve it.
Dear Amy, John and Rebecca,
We join you in mourning the loss of your beloved John-John. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Bill and Gail DeFeo

My son and I stopped at Halas Farm the day the baby chicks arrived this year. We did not know your son John at all, but he took time out of his day to show us where they were and tell us about them. He said he often stopped what he was doing to watch them and hold one or two. He was so kind to us, and left an impression on my 11-year-old son. We just wanted you to know this story about him.
I am so sorry for your loss. We are praying for John and your whole family.

When I entered Bruno's a couple of weeks ago I observed a hand waving frantically from one of the tables. It was John. He stood up with a big smile and asked me how I was doing. He didn't have to do that, but he was genuinely interested. John was so down to earth, easy to talk to and had a knack for making people feel appreciated. He valued them. To the Pendergast Family - We mourn with you. We are so privileged to have known your son. - Bob, Darlene, Joe and James
