John William Porgie

February 7, 1963 – July 7, 2018

John is predeceased by his lovely mother Mildred P. Porgie and his father Joseph W. Porgie, and is survived by the love of his life Ann R. Ready and stepchildren Alex, Robert, Sam, Ness and grandchildren Lucca, Bella, Nicco, Benji and many of his friends including those at the American Bull Bar & Grill. John was born in Yonkers, NY and moved to Burlingame, CA where he grew up assisting his mother Mildred managing apartment buildings for Ed Rogers Realty, which he eventually took over permanently, and met his sweetheart Ann Ready. John was an advocate of education which he espoused on his stepchildren. He graduated from San Francisco State University and after leaving a promising motocross career, he began his own jewelry business, Diamond Design Co. in San Francisco. Many of John's family, friends and acquaintances are wearing his personally designed rings, necklaces and bracelets to this day. Years after opening his business, John decided to get back into motorcycle racing where his proudest moment was reuniting with all of his motocross friends, and joining the Over the Hill Gang (OTHG). His passion for motocross was evident and greatly respected by his peers. We will undoubtedly miss John's humor, quick wit and compassion. Although our hearts are broken, we are eternally grateful for the time spent with Johnny and the memories made over the years. The funeral services will be held on Saturday, July 21, 2018 at 11:00 AM at Chapel of the Highlands, 194 Millwood Dr., Millbrae, CA 94030.
