Jonathan R. Aucella Obituary
Jonathan (Jon) Richard Aucella. Our darling Jon, 42 of Hawthorne California passed away at his home on Friday, December 14, 2018. He was born in Boston, Ma on August 30, 1976 and graduated Georgetown High School in 1995. In November 1997 he joined the U.S. Marine Corp. Jon excelled in the Marines where he was promoted to Sergeant and earned many awards. He also completed the rigorous Scout Sniper Training, where he graduated top of his class in 1999. He dutifully and faithfully completed his term of service to our country in November 2001. After finishing his military service he earned his commercial plumbing and contractors license. He went to work for Pan-Pacific Plumbing and Mechanical, where, over the past 11 years, he became an experienced Journeyman Plumber. During his time there, he earned the love and trust of many of his friends, fondly nicknamed, Boston Jon. He always felt very grateful about the company he worked for and the relationships he made, especially his friendship with Royal McMackin. There was never a dull moment, as those who knew him will say. Jon was an avid skydiver, graduating from Parris Valley Skydiving School in April 2014 and closing in on getting his instructors license. He also loved snowboarding, skiing and surfing with his oldest son Adam, always teaching him his famous moves. Jons personality was bigger than life. Handsome, proud and mischievous. He was the life of the party with his contagious laugh, heart-warming smile and those captivating blue eyes. However, his overriding devotion and priority was to his children. He cherished every moment with them and they with him. He will be truly missed by all that knew him and loved him. He is the loving father of his three children; Adam Aucella, son of Kimberly Aucella. John and Cailyn Aucella, son and daughter of Vanessa Aucella, all of California. He is the beloved son of Judith (Brown) Horne and Stepfather Stephen D Horne of Georgetown Ma. and son of, deceased father, John R. Aucella. Brother of Nicole Johnson and her husband Jeffrey Johnson of Georgetown, Ma., best friend and brother Adam Aucella of Nevada City, Ca. and half-brother, Eugenio Aucella of Pompano Beach, Florida. Uncle to Ava and Jenna Johnson of Georgetown, Ma. Stepbrother of Jeffrey, Jarrod Horne and Jessica Horne Andrews. Beloved friend and partner, Alessandra Zurawel of Hawthorne Ca. He is also survived by many Aunts, Uncles, nephews, cousins and dear friends. A Funeral service was held at Douglas Funeral Home in El Segundo, California on December 22, 2018. A celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, February 9, 2019 at St. Marys Parish located at 94 Andover St. Georgetown, Ma.
