John Raffo Obituary
John F. Raffo

On October 16, our beloved "Big Johnny" passed away peacefully in his home at the age of 88. He will be deeply missed by his children, Rita Raffo Arnold, and John Raffo (Roxanne); his granddaughters, Sophia and Angelica Arnold; his sister, Mary Gamma and many family members who loved him. He was predeceased by his wife, Marge Raffo, his parents, Frank and Elizabeth Raffo and his sister, Claire Raffo. John was raised in Noe Valley and grew up above his father's grocery store on Sanchez Street. He worked as a Sunset Scavenger until he joined as partner of Green Garden Nursery in Millbrae. From there, he managed Peter & Wilson Nursery until its closing. He was a veteran who fought on the front lines in Korea. Our dad was a hard worker who did everything to help his family. His sense of humor was legendary.
A memorial mass will be held at 11am on Saturday, November 17 at Our Lady of Angels Church, Hillside Drive, Burlingame.
He will be missed forever.
