John Guy Ungaro Obituary
JOHN GUY UNGARO, born in New York on August 1, 1934 John Guy Ungaro, the youngest of 4 brothers and 1 sister, returned to our father's embrace May 5, 2016. Preceded by Rita Ungaro, his wife of 63 years, and his son John "Smurf" Ungaro. John's legacy is carried on by his 8 children: Rocco Ungaro, Rita Risley, Joseph Ungaro, Rose Enriquez, Victor Ungaro, Patrick Ungaro, Michelle Ungaro, Victoria Gonzalez; his grandchildren, and great grandchildren. John took great pride in being a member and former president of the Eagles Lodge. He would frequently wear a baseball cap donning his lodge and former rank. John was a patriot who served in the Marines reserve and loved being an Italian-American. Sociable and fun loving John was always trying to make people laugh. Everyone who came around him was embraced by his kindness and gleeful sense of humor. Never donning a frown John loved telling jokes and would always be willing to share a story of his youth. He always knew his neighbors and was quick to make friends wherever he went. It is with that regard his family would like to invite all his friends to celebrate his life. The viewing will be held on May 17 at Pierce Brothers-Crestlawn Mortuary, 11500 Arlington Ave., Riverside, Ca, 92505 at 9am-11am with services and burial to follow.
