I am so very sorry to learn of your passing. We practically had the same birthday. You August 12th, me August 13th. Born & raised in Chicago. I have been considering writing a book about the St. Valentines Day Massacre from a different perspective & was thinking about contacting you. That is when I learned you had passed away. I'm still going forward with the book & will hope to make contact with your family. Rest well & know you are not forgotten Johnny.

Business Humanitarian always helping others strive for their best ! That was Johnny Fratto to us .
Johnny had a remarkable ability to be liked and to be real in business savvy. I recently met him and instantly bonded while learning how to expand my business. He became a new partner, and has left a extremely wonderful example to my team about Business Humanitarianism. We at the Amphitheater for Humanity in Annapolis Maryland miss you Johnny.

Dear Jowanka, Joey and Willie, we're very sorry about Johnny. He was fun and never stopped to make every one laugh. I can still hear him laughing whenever I think of him and can only imagine how hard and sad this must be for you all. You're always in our thoughts and prayers. If we can help ease your pain in any way however big or small, please remember we're only a text away. Our prayer is for God to fill your hearts with his perfect peace and comfort. Much love and blessings to you. Xx
