We will take comfort in knowing that they enter in to eternal life together. Both were surrounded by their family at their passing and will be greatly missed by all. They were members of the Northside Senior Center, American Legion Post 1700, and the Endicott Elks. John loved the New York Giants, and the New York Yankees and his daily lunches with his buddies at Jim Roma's Bakery. Catherine was devoted to taking care of her family, crocheting, and loved her sweets. They loved long car rides, especially if it included a stop at a casino. They enjoyed time with family and friends. They were devoted to attending their grandchildren's sporting events and were very proud of their grandchildren and their achievements. The family would like to give a special thank you to the Jim Roma's Bakery family for their love and generosity.
