Age 93 of Shoreview
Passed away on September 30, 2021 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Preceded in death by; parents, Harry and Lucille; brothers, Richard and Robert.
Survived by; children, John (Leslie), Lynn, Matthew; and long-time partner, Joe Gburzynski.
John was a lifelong resident of Saint Paul, a graduate of Monroe Highschool and Minneapolis College of Art and Design, an Army Vet and retiree of Hamm’s Brewery. He enjoyed the proximity of Irvine Park to downtown Saint Paul in his early years and took full advantage of the music, arts, and shops. Being a free spirit he appreciated lively people, adventure, and above all, classic cars. In the last couple of years, the isolation caused by Covid proved far more difficult to John than his failing health. John was proud of the contrarian aspects of his Italian/English heritage and instilled this love of culture into his family and friends. All Holidays were celebrated with vigor and style. He was kind and compassionate, and loved life. The mischievous twinkle in his eyes and the salty comebacks will be very much missed by all who knew him. Thank you to the nurses and staff at United Hospital for the careful care and kindness.
Memorials preferred to Saint Paul Gospel Mission.
A service and celebration of life will be held at 11:00 am on Friday October 8th at Bradshaw (4600 Greenhaven Dr.). Private family interment to follow.
