John’s passing has rendered his normally talkative and raucous family speechless. He was loved by everyone who encountered him; and his kind heart was a force of nature. John was a chef’s chef, with his most formative years spent working at The Manhattan Restaurant. He shared his kitchen knowledge with his surviving relatives, ensuring his delicious recipes will continue.
In a better world, John would have been a historian. He had an impeccable memory and served as the family’s archivist and holder of stories. He was dignified—a true elder statesman. John will be missed by all who had the gift of meeting and knowing him.
