John Bravo Obituary

John Bravo, 66, resident of Marysville, California, died February 11, 2016. John is best remembered as a rollicking free-spirit preferring an unfettered life in the great outdoors to that of an ordinary, shut in existence. Fishing with his lifelong best friend Raymond provided no end of joy and happiness for John.

Survivors include one full-blood sibling residing in Buenos Aires, Argentina and two offspring. John's body was respectfully prepared with essential oils in the traditions of his ancestors thanks to Lipp & Sullivan Funeral Directors of Marysville, CA. As John requested, there are no services.

For John,
Wild Geese by Mary Oliver

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees for a
hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your
body love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell
you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of
the rain are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees, the
mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean
blue air, are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the
world offers itself to your imagination, calls to
you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting
over and over announcing your place in the
family of things.
