So sorry to hear of John's passing. He was a dear friend and neighbor of my dad for over 50 years and a kind and gentle man. He suffered much loss in his life and now he can be with those that have gone before him. I wish you all peace with his passing.

My Uncle Johnny had the most faith of anyone I have ever met in my life. He was a wonderful kindhearted man that I loved very much. Now he is with the love of his life, Aunt Theresa and beautiful daughter Marie. Rest In Peace Uncle Johnny... Dot Bulger

My uncle was my Godfather and he was a wonderful man. Quiet by nature, but enjoyed a good laugh. He loved his beautiful Theresa and is united with her again, in the arms of God. I will miss you dearly Uncle John, rest in peace.
