It has been years since I seen or spoke to John or anyone of his family members, but when I lived there, John was my rock also. He made sure to teach me all he could about life, good and bad, and ensure that I was always safe when we went places. He accepted this New Yorker like one of his own as well as my two closest friends in life when they came. John always had his hand out, pocket, and door open to me from the day i met him. this has come as a real shock to me. My thoughts and prayers go out to tam, robert teai lil chris dawn and any other family members of johns. From up here in NY to down there in Florida and wherever you ended up bro.. i missed you before i heard about this and will forever miss you. Rest in Peace brother. Love Tocco.

John there are no words to express the amount of sadness im feeling since someone took you away from the family. I love you and miss you. You were always there for me and Chris. It is very hard to accept that you Aren't going to be there anymore. You will always have a place in my heart keeping you memory alive. I know we didn't always get along sometimes had differences that were like day and nite but you were always looking out. You helped so many people many times before helping yourself. You took the role of father to my son who loves you and stood by you no matter what you gave all the knowledge and values to all the kids.you made them strong and would be very proud of the way they have stuck together and helped each other through this aweful tragity. Now you mom and dad are together you all can look down from heaven and watch over all of us keeping us safe and help guide us through life's obsticles. You should be so proud of all the kids just as you helped me get through mom and dad going to heaven the kids helped me with you going to heaven.i will keep your memory close in my heart. Love you always and forever. I will talk to you soon as I know your listening right along with mom and dad.

Dawn, I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how close you guys were and I know the pain will be with you for a very long time. Just know he's with your mom and dad now and they are all looking over you and the kids. I hope you get justice and find some peace.

Dad, I miss you so much words cannot even explain my hurt. You were my rock, the one person I could call, and no mater what the problem was, you were right by my side. Although we didn't agree on everything and we had our differences we always stayed true to each other. You taught me that family always comes first and there are a few relationships I need to mend in your honor and I will do that. Your the reason I'm so strong and independent, you were an amazing father and grandfather just know that. I want you to know that no matter what I will always stay true to my values, like you always told me to. I WILL make you proud of me, although I know u already are. You may not have been perfect but you were my father, my rock, and now my angel! I love you forever and always. Rip Dad <3

John was an awesome man who loved his family and his close friends. To say he will be missed is an understatment. I for one loved his sense of humor you never knew what he was going to say or do, it was always so much fun being around him.

Teai I think this poem is very fitting as you were his little girl and loved so much:

Just remember that loved ones never go away. They are always by our side, even on days when they may seem just an illusion.

Your father was a wonderful person. He will be sincerely missed by all. May his soul rest in peace.

No matter where he goes, you will always be your Daddy's little star. He will watch over you from above.

I felt my heart broke into pieces when I heard about the sudden death of your beloved father. He was a great person. He will truly be missed.

I was saddened to hear about the demise of your loving father. Please take care of yourself dear. May his soul rest in tranquil.

A great soul has departed, but the memories shall never fade. Your loss is huge, and I can only share your pain. May the soul that has gone, rest in peace. Keep faith and courage. I am sorry for your loss.

I am sorry for your loss. May the departed soul rest in eternal peace. Stay strong and let time heal you. God is always with you.

May God shower light on your life ahead, and guide you through these sorry days. I can understand your pain, but the soul that is no more with us shall see peace and rest.

Your loss is painful, and it is very difficult to come through such times. Keep faith in God, and he shall pour his love and care on you. We are always there to support you, take care.

John you were a great guy, you will be missed dearly. You raised an amazing daughter, she's being so strong for everyone it's incredible, but of course deep down shes broken over your loss. I will be there for her no matter what. Thanks for always being there for me when I needed you.
August 28, 2013
