John Mercurio Obituary
Mercurio, John
John M. Mercurio of Sarasota FL and Columbus Ohio, age 79, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family and friends on September 3, 2017 from complications related to Dementia. John was preceded in death by his parents John and Annie, and stepfathers Wisty Cosentino and Phil Macaluso. He is survived by his best friend, soulmate and loving wife of 57 years, Mary Jo; his sons John (Sherry) and Michael (Maria); his beloved grandchildren Nikki (Tony) Galiardi, Anthony, Johnny (Nikki Hipolito), Paul and Kristina Mercurio and his 'special buddies' great-grandchildren Eva and Silvia Galiardi. John is also survived by his sisters-in-law Kathleen (Newt) Thomas and Carol Russ; his nieces Lisa, Mary Carol, Kathy and nephews Doug, Gregory 'Eugene' and Chris; his Aunts Rose and Connie Flichia and many cousins; wonderful friends including his lifelong friend Tim McSweeney; close friend Steve Wallace and special friend Gracie Cervantez. John was a proud alumnus of Aquinas High School and Franklin University. He retired from the Columbus Division of Traffic Engineering after 40+ years of dedicated public service. While retired, John served as a board member and President of the Golden Gate Point Condominium Association in Sarasota and loved to golf, travel, entertain friends and watch his grandkids grow up. John was an avid Ohio State and TBDBITL supporter. In his youth he was a batboy for the Columbus Redbirds which led to his lifetime love of baseball, especially the NY Yankees and his hometown Columbus baseball teams. John loved teaching and coaching baseball to young ballplayers. John made it a point to attend all of his grandchildren's athletic/school events during their youth and high school years where his distinguishably loud finger whistles were unmistakable. He insisted that the family dinner table was the most important part of the day and loved nothing greater than family gatherings and making his breaded eggplant. John was a faithful member of St. Martha Catholic Church (Sarasota, Florida), Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church (Columbus, Ohio), and volunteered for the St. Vincent DePaul Society. o all of our family & friends....Please do not be sad that it has ended; be thankful that it had happened. We believe he is with the Lord now and rejoice that his mind and body no longer suffer. We find solace that he is now in the Kingdom that has no end and that we will see him again someday.
