8/30/1958 - 11/17/2020
John was one-of-a-kind. His kindness knew no bounds and the pride and love he had for his family was second to none. He treated the kids in his life as if they were his own and encouraged them to be anything they wanted to be. There was no favor too big or celebration too small—he looked for ways to give. The family and friends he leaves behind will feel his loss everyday but remain inspired by his love for life and adventure.
His colleagues at Frier Levitt would say John had a heart of gold and was generous to all who knew him. The words “no” and “can’t” were simply not a part of John’s vocabulary and he spent his free time on the front lines as a critical care nurse and paramedic with a major New York City hospital system. To say that his loss has shaken us, would be an understatement. This kind, caring man will be truly missed beyond words.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the New York-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital in John’s name. VISITATION
