Donna and family, we are so sad to hear of "Uncle" Johns passing. We aren't related by blood but your family has been more like family than our own family. We love you and will treasure our memories of NYC, KOA and holidays and family get togethers.

So sorry to hear about Jon's passing. Enjoyed when we would get together on holidays and Ava's birthday. I know how much he loved Ava. She has lost her "Papa". We have all lost a kind and gentle soul.

Heartfelt condolences to Jonathan's family.
We were classmates at St. Edwards.
My memory of him is a very nice person with a kind and gentle heart.

My sympathy to your family. John always brightened my work days when you visited the cafe. He never failed to ask after my kids and it was obvious how much he loved his own and his little Ava. May he rest in peace.

Rebecca Loxley McCarthy - 11/01/2015

So sorry for your loss. It was nice to see Jonathan over the years at family gatherings. May he rest in peace, and may you be comforted by your memories of him.

Steph and family,
We were so sorry to hear about your dad last Thurs. We also were in Miriam, with Lu recuperating from spinal surgery. She is on bed rest for another week, so we couldn't visit to offer our condolences in person. She can't be left alone. Love to all.

Sheila Ferrara - 11/02/2015

I am an R.N., and I worked at St. Joseph's Hospital when Jon worked there as a Security Guard. He was such a nice man, and always so kind to everyone. I looked forward to his visits to my unit! He was instrumental in my decision to become an organ donor, and I thank him for that. My sincere sympathy to all of Jon's loved ones!

Michele Bourgoin-Murphy and family - 11/05/2015

We are so sorry for your loss. To lose someone too soon to cancer is the saddest thing. He was a wonderful grandfather to Ava. We send our sympathy.
