    Ellen and Family,

    We were surprised and saddened to hear of John’s passing on Easter Sunday. John was such a strong Christian presence in the Saint Mary’s
    Saint Helena’s community. His faith and enthusiasm were inspirational. We’re glad to have seen him a couple of summer’s back at Fr. Paul
    Rainville’s 50th celebration in Suncook. Norma & Tom McGonis

    john was a great guy and an awsome dude

  3. Brian R. Sullivan says:

    I never saw John again after we graduated from Regis. But I remember him from those high school days well. His enthusiastic response to The Sound of Music when our freshman class attended the musical remains vivid in my mind.

    Not many of our class served in Vietnam, let alone as a Ranger. As a Marine officer veteran of that conflict, John’s service inspires my deepest admiration.

    Rest of his bones and soul’s delivery.

  4. Richard Chiarello says:

    So sorry to hear of your loss. John was loved by many at Regis. My prayers are with you and your family.

  5. Lisa Ricard says:

I’ve always enjoyed the excitement and compassion that John expressed in his homilies at Saint John the XXIII. They will always be remembered. May Gods gentle peace fill your hearts and comfort your souls today and in the days to come.

  6. Joyce & Wayne Nadeau says:

    To the St George family …

    Such a shock to hear of John’s passing! We remember him fondly as a wonderful and caring man, a Deacon at St Mary and St Helena’s Parish in Canaan, NH. His devotion in Christ Jesus, made him the man he was; dedicated to his loving family, a pillar in his community, his unwavering Catholic strength and purpose. We will miss him dearly and send all of the St George’s our love and condolences.

    I am deeply sorry to learn of John’s passing. He was a true gentleman, a light in this world, with a kind and caring manner that touched many lives with his words shared and actions displayed.
