It was a pleasure to meet you, John and your wife, Cathy when I was one of Tori's teachers at Hudson Catholic High School. I remember your generosity, kindness, and devotion to your family and the community. Rest in Peace, John. You blessed so many people in life and you passed that gift to those who follow you in this life. Blessings and sympathy to your family and Tori, my former student.

You achieved most anything you put your mind to. Dude, you could drive someone nuts and get a laugh or hug from them in the same 5 minutes. You will be greatly missed, but the stories will go on and on. Peace my friend

We will miss your big smiles and hugs of welcome at our church! Most of all, we will miss your words of encouragement and caring friendship! We look forward to the Second Coming of Jesus when we shall all meet again and live with our Savior together in health and happiness, aka The Blessed Hope.

John from the moment I came into the Mazza family, you made me feel welcome. I always admired your live in the moment attitude and love of life. One of your goals in life was to make people smile and you definitely achieved that! Cathy would have been so proud of the "just be kind" attitude you continued after her passing. Thank you for your love and your laughs, you will be missed deeply.

Dude, you left too soon, but so happy you will be reunited with Cathy and have eternity to continue your love story together. We'll all make sure Brooke and Mason hear stories about "dude" and never forget how much you loved Tori and them.
