Uncle Johnny, we will all miss you and the happiness you brought with such fond memories. Thanks to this age of internet connectivity (Facebook), we have connected with the other side of the Gattino family in South America! There are hundreds of us! Thanks for buying me that bus ticket while I was hitch-hiking to Montana and for being there at the ranch with me. You're the best! Every time I see a horse race, I think of you. Bye for now...
Uncle Johnny, I will miss you.
The "One & Only"...Johnny Gat, as he was affectionately known in Vermilion. John has been a close friend of mine & our family for almost 60 years. I could tell "Johnny Gat" stories for weeks on end... all good & all with a great sense of humor. John was always the same, smiling guy at all times. He touched a lot of folks lives & was always generous with his time & attention to anyone in need.
You'll always be close to our hearts, Gat!
Sincere Condolences & Prayers to the Family!
Our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
Dear Family of "Mr.John" John was a great neighbor and our kids loved him. We would come home to gifts on the doorstep for the kids with no note and knew they were from him. He helped us with our garden, sat and watched horse races with us, always had a kind hello and was always friendly and watched out for us. Although an avid Michigan fan, he often got Kai Ohio U. things knowing that his daddy went there to school. We loved John and have already missed him being around. Prayers and hugs to all of the family! ~The Stovicek Family

It is so hard to say goodbye to someone you love. It hurts so much, but I hope that your wonderful memories will help you through this time. Rest in peace Johnny.
Uncle Johnny was so kind to me growing up and I often thought of him and how he was doing. I am so sad to hear of his passing. Unfortunately I cannot be there for the service for him, so please accept my love and prayers for his family and friends instead. God Bless you Uncle Johnny.. now you are free to fly with the angels.
