Our deepest sympathies on the loss of your beloved patriarch - Johnny. He was a wonderful neighbor, always greeting us with a hearty "hello, how are you? How are the girls?" and a grand wave of the hand if he drove by in the convertible. We will always appreciate his warmth and generosity. Whenever the girls set up a lemonade stand at the end of the driveway, he was often the first customer, pulling out a $5 bill for a 50 cents glass. He would say he wanted to promote entrepreneurship and support local business! What a guy!!
Condolence: Dear Aunt Joan and family,
We were saddened to learn of the passing of Uncle John while vacationing in Florida. Sorry we cannot attend the services with everyone.
We will fondly remember Uncle Johnny for his love of golf and his infectious laugh. We can picture him in his antique convertible driving along Longshore' s tree- lined road waving to everyone.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
Fannie and Jim Conley
Condolence: John and I went back to the 1950's. Hi mother, Angelina, was a wonderful strong matriarch. From the beginning John showed the same leadership and quality of life characteristics. To know him was to love him! He will be deeply missed.
Condolence: Our prayers are with Joan, Joe, John Jr and the entire Izzo family upon the passing of John Sr. I know he will be dearly missed, his smile, good humor and love for a good chat about any political issue. Wishing the entire family strength during this sad time. Warm regards from Bali.
Condolence: To my Aunt Joan and cousins, Joe and John Jr. (and their wives and families), I'd like to extend my heartfelt sympathy.
Uncle John was a vibrant individual whose love and generosity will be greatly missed! One particular memory I wanted to share with you was the time Uncle John invited me and my sons, Mick Jr. and Joe, to play a round of golf at Long Shore. This was the summer after we lost my husband, Mick Sr., and we were both saddened each time we played (because golf was Mick's passion) but also happy to keep his memory alive through the sport he loved so much.
I will remember my uncle every time I'm on the course, and the next time I tee it up will be in his honor!
Condolence: On behalf of the Democratic Women of Westport I wish to offer my condolences to John's family. John was a friend of the DWW and attended many of our events. We didn't always share political opinions, but John enchanted us with his warmth,friendliness and good humor. We will miss him.

Condolence: John was our friend. When I say 'our' I really do mean our, as in everyone I know - even the most casual of acquaintance. Not one time was he ever too hurried for a big hello, handshake and chat on how my family and I were doing. I so enjoyed our moments both on and off the golf course. John was a rare happy man. Comfortable in his skin in any environment. I will miss him.
