Obituary of John Mark Proia

John Proia (8/22/1982 - 5/15/2024)

Suddenly, on May 15, 2024, he went home to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, at the young age of 41. Our dedication to systemic change and accountability, as voices for Johnny, has given us purpose and will push us through this tragedy.

He will be remembered for his love of basketball; his favorite player, Tracy McGrady; his love of God; and his love of family. He was a skilled barber and landscaper with a passion for perfection. We will treasure the moments we were blessed to have had with him. Our only comfort is knowing that he is no longer in pain and will be with us again in eternity.

He is predeceased by his beloved father and fellow NBA enthusiast, Richard Proia; his aunt, Nina Ives; his uncle, Stephen Proia; his grandparents, Teresa and Sam ‘Salvatore’ Proia; cousins, Carolyn Proia and Charles Ives; as well as several beloved pet cats.

He is survived by his devastated younger sister, Angelina Proia, and mother, Alice Proia. His aunts and uncles include Mark, Sam “Salvatore” II (Mary), Alan (Dorie), Perry (Helen) Proia, Gina Martin, Lana Turk, Kathryn Craig, and Anita (Edwin) Clark, who were like second parents to him, and were especially close. He leaves behind numerous cousins - Aaron (his minidawg), Josiah, Samuel (Olivia), Christina, Teresa, Renee, Sam “Salvatore” III, and Martina “Tina” Proia; Alana Inman (Noah), Sarah Woodworth (Ken), Alicia Jones (Chuck Jones); Thera, Ian, and Rachel Clark; Elizabeth Webster (Jason), Lily Kircher (James), Ike Turk, Chrissy Eastman (Erik), Richard, Lala, and Steven Ives; Emily, Marilyn, and Austin Martin; and Power Felix. And lastly, the cats that brought him so much joy in his final years: Baby Jo, Garnett, Samson, Luca Brasi, Merrick, and Scarlet.

Services to be held at Falvo Funeral Home, 1295 Fairport Nine Mile Point Road (Rte. 250) Webster, 14580, on Saturday, June 8, 2024 from 1-4pm. Gathering afterwards by invitation.
