  1. Adele and family, We are so sorry to hear that John has passed away. We so enjoyed our good times together in Florida and in Rome. It was a pleasure to know him and have him our lives. We will miss him. Our deepest sympathy. Carol and Steve Loverde

  2. Adele and family, We are so very sorry for your loss, and OUR loss. John was such a wonderful person, so full of life and FUN…especially during Special Olympics golf season! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing him every week at Sleeping Giant, even if only to grumble about those D**N YANKEES! He will be missed. May your wonderful memories carry you and your family through this difficult time.

  3. Victoria and John, We were so sorry to hear of the passing of your esteemed father (grandfather and father-in-law). Please accept our family’s condolences. Love your cousins from West Haven; Patricia, Bill, and son, James Paxton
