Not sure what to say?

John was always smiling and friendly with me as we worked together in the late '90's. I am sorry to hear of his passing from this life to the next. To his family, may The Lord's peace be with you through your adjustment to this loss.

We are sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers. May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

Our Parents were told they might never have children. The Lord gave my Parents Salvatore John on May Seventeenth (5-17)--on our Fathers (also Salvatore John)Birthday May 17th (5-17)at 5:17a.m. My Parents knew then they had a special guy! My Brother was my "Point Man", he was the "Go To" guy, he was my everything. As he told my Family and I often.....you gotta "Believe!". Keep the Faith! Love Always-

Very saddened at the passing of a long lost friend! I worked with John at West Coast Regional Water Supply Authority. It was John and his wonderful personality that convinced me to work on a project that really helped me in developing an excellent career. I know that John touched a lot of people. I am happy that I was one of them. Guess the light from above just got a lot brighter.

I was deeply saddened to hear of John's passing. Thinking of his family during this difficult time. Peace, Prayers & Blessings...

My thoughts & prayers go out to John's family, friends, and co-workers. I got the liberty to work with John for the last 12 1/2 years and am happy to call him a dear friend.
We got to enjoy a nice supper in Chicago last October with John & Marla and we had a blast!
John always came into City Hall with a smile on his face and could make a bad day much better by just being in the room. He LOVED to talk about his grandson and family, and I enjoyed listening. I could go on...

My deepest sympathy to John's family. John's smile and wit will be missed.

We were so sorry to hear about John and wish we could attend his Mass, but we are in South Carolina this week. Know we are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

Stunned and saddened to hear of John's passing at a much too young age. Condolences and deepest sympathies to Chris, Marla and family.
