  1. Dear Sue, Carl and Carl, Jr. Sorry to hear that your father passed away. He was a wonderful man. I remember working with him on your wedding. I hope that he wasn’t sick for too long. We must keep in touch. Hope to see you soon.

  2. I am saddened at the lost of my brother. But I am so very grateful that he had such a wonderful family in New Haven – his daughter Sue and her terrific husband and son. I’m also grateful for his close friends at the VA and elsewhere. You were John’s whole life, dear people. Love to you all, Bill

  3. I am very sorry to hear of John,s passing. I met John at the VA HOSPITAL in a Occupational group at the Hospital Supervised by a Mrs. Mary Samson. I and John attended some yale athletic events and also the Arena Football- NINJAS at the New Haven Colisiem. We also had been to a few movies together and toured the local Art Galleries , Went to a arcade together in Milford Conn to play pool a few times. John will be missed greatly and will be remembered for a long while. I received encourgement from him that has enriched my life since our meeting each other a few years ago. May GOD BLESS his SOUL , and may his Family Share my Condolences. Barry W Braman

  4. I will always remember my Uncle John as being so very nice and funny, too. But what I remember most recently about my uncle is how much he loved his daughter Susan, my cousin. Although I don’t get to see her much, she is such a wonderful person (a reflection of her dad!), and I’m so happy to be her relative! Her husband, Carl, and her son, Carl, are also wonderful, and my uncle was so lucky to have these people in his life.

  5. I’ll always remember the clever wit and endearing smile of my uncle John. I saw that smile again Wednesday when I met his grandson Carl at the service and know that John’s good sense of humor and kind demeanor lives on in him.
