John Stamos
John Stamos, age 90, of Trumbull passed away peacefully at his home on Monday, April 5, 2021. He was the beloved husband of Grace (Colello) Stamos. Born in Bridgeport on July 12, 1930, he was a son of the late Samuel and Katherine (Andrew) Stamos. A proud veteran of the U.S. Air Force, he had served honorably during the Korean War. John went on to earn a Teaching Degree from Southern CT State Teachers College and obtained his Graduate Teaching Degree from Fairfield University. John was a U.S. History Teacher at Andrew Warde High School in Fairfield, with over 25 years of dedicated service before his retirement. He loved being an educator; it was more than a job, it was his vocation in life, and to this day his former students share fond memories and warm sentiments from when John was their teacher. John also found great pleasure in going to the beach despite his disdain for cold water temperatures. Two of his favorite places to visit with family were Watch Hill, RI and yearly trips to Tarpon Springs, FL. He also loved playing cards in his beloved "cabin by the lake" - a small shed near a pond in his backyard - where he would often get lovingly teased by his sons and closest friends. He was an avid bocce player and enjoyed partaking in a "whisper" of scotch with family and friends alike. His older grandkids warmly recall him visiting - unannounced, per his style - to share one of these famous "whispers" on occasion.
John's greatest enjoyment however was found in the time he spent with his family. John was eternally devoted to and treasured his wife of 70 years, Grace, and was indelibly proud of the family he created with her. He was a loving husband, father, Popi, Great Popi, brother, and friend. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
In addition to his beloved wife, Grace, John is survived by his three loving sons, John M. Stamos, Stephen C. Stamos and his wife Julie, and Chris J. Stamos and his wife Elizabeth; his cherished grandchildren Jessica Ramirez and her husband Nathan, Kirk Stamos and his wife Amy, Kali Bronski and her husband Robert, Jake Stamos, and Connor Stamos; and his adored great-grandchildren Bennett and Nora Ramirez, and Sloan Stamos. John is also survived by his brother, Peter Stamos, as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brother, Harry Stamos.

Dear Grace, it is with great sadness to hear of John's passing. I was thinking of both of you the other day, as I often do; thinking of all the good times we 4 had at the dances and clubs and with such fond memories of you and the girls in class. I remember how very fond both of you were for each other and pray that God grants you comfort . Much love to you, Grace.

John was always a pleasure to work with. I first met him when he was a customer of mine at my health food store in Trumbull (in the late 90s). Later I knew him as a customer of mine at the Adam Miller Agency (Insurance). I just found out about his passing today and was deeply saddened. I will miss being given an A+ by John for finding him the best insurance rates and will miss hearing him speak about his wife Grace. My heart is heavy today and I’d like to send my deepest condolences to his family and friends. He will be missed by me as well. ❤

In loving memory of one of the most wonderful people I've ever met, here's a great cheer to Uncle John. He cared for people in truly devoted and amazing ways, such as the manner in which he looked after my grandmother Doxie like his own mother. Thank you for spreading your light, Uncle John. You will be sorely missed, but never forgotten. - Madeleine Scinto from San Francisco, Calif.

John Stamos was an incredibly warm and friendly relative and helped care for my Grandmother Doxie Scinto in her elder years and took me to see her. I am saddened to hear of him passing but glad to see he lived well into old aged and died peacefully. Rest in peace John; my condolences to his wife Grace and their children.

As a student of Mr Stamos in 1974 I have fond memories of his engaging personality and warm smile.
He spoke TO you... not over you!
He once exclaimed... “My goodness, Gas has gone up to 35 cents a gallon!!! But even if it went up to, say a dollar!!! I’d still have to buy it... I need to be here with you all, I WANT to be here with you all!
Thank you Mr. Stamos!

I am very happy and blessed to have met John. He was my friend and as I would call him my ‘snoozer’ at spring meadows. He loved when i would turn the fireplace on for him and he would sit right next to it and “take a light snooze” as he would say. He made me happy coming to work and always expecting to say hi to him and Grace. Im definitely going to miss him and the laughs and conversations we had together. Until we meet again .. Snooze on my friend. ❤

I had the pleasure of getting to spend a lot of time with Mr. Stamos in the past year. John was a true gentlemen and will be missed greatly by all at Spring Meadows. He made coming to work seem less like work.
I am very lucky to be able to call him my friend.

I taught with John at AWHS. His room was W7 and mine was W5. He welcomed me when I was a new teacher. We were very close and shared stories and laughs. RIP, John. Condolences to you all.

Our sincere condolences as you grieve. I am crying as I write this.
Francine and myself are very sorry for your great loss. Remember that we are just a phone call away if you need to talk.
I know these words can’t take away the great pain you’re feeling, but I want you to know how much Francine and myself care. Try to remember how many close loving offspring you have, it will help ease the pain. I will leave you with the thought from Thomas Bailey Aldric, an American poet and writer, “What is lovely never dies, but passes into another loveliness, star-dust or sea-foam, flower or winged air.” John will be with us forever.
Love you,
Daniel and Francine Scinto
