Obituary Condolences

John Faraci 1941 - 2008 MANCHESTER John Faraci, beloved husband, father and doting grandfather, died in the arms of his loving family at home on May 1, 2008, at the young age of 66. John died of prostate cancer, which he had been courageously fighting for more than six years. Born in Troy, N.Y., on June 18, 1941, the only child of Stella and Frank Faraci, he graduated from Troy High School in 1959, attended Siena College, and received a master of arts degree in AmericanLiterature from Fordham University. John and his wife, Bonnie, moved to Manchester the day after their wedding in New York City in 1969. John founded a commercial real estate company specializing in the sale of country businesses to escapees from the big cities. Teaching was one of John's great strengths. He put that to good use in creating a company that producedseminars and training courses for realtors nationwide, and was twice a presenter at the National Convention of the National Association of Realtors. The art of the deal always intrigued John and, over the last 10 years, he formed an investment partnership, acquiring apartment and retail properties in the Southeast and New England. He coached basketball at Manchester Elementary and Burr and Burton and was active in local theater with the Dorset Players and Burr and Burton productions. John was passionate about many things: the back roads of Vermont, his unrequited love of golf, pizza, basketball, music, movies, trivia and the list could go on and on. But most of all, John was in love with his family. John leaves behind his beloved wife of 39 wonderful years, Bonnie; his son, Scott Faraci, of San Francisco; his daughters Jennifer Faraci Mowry of Granby, Conn., and Stacey Faraci of New York City; and son-in-laaw, Peter Mowry; his twin grandchildren, Seth and Ryan Mowry, and far too many friends and relatives to count. FUNERAL NOTICE: A memorial service will be Monday, May 5, 2008 at 1 p.m. at the First Congregational Church, 3624 Main Street in Manchester. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the following: The Trustees of Columbia University, Columbia University Medical Center, 161 Fort Washington Avenue, Herbert Irving Pavilion, New York, New York 10032.
