In addition to his wife, John is survived by his mother Braulia; his children Johnny, Mark, Jennifer, and Laura; and his sister Eileen Farmer(Scott). 

He is also survived by Phyllis’ family: Jean and Tom Walsh, Victor Jr., John, Angel, Michael, and Robert Spaccarelli, as well as many nieces and nephews. His father John predeceased him in 2009.

Friends and family are welcome to attend a visitation on Sunday, Nov. 1 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Joseph J. Smith Funeral Home in Mahopac. 

Visitors must wear a face-covering and practice social distancing inside and outside the funeral home. Due to occupancy restrictions, you may have to remain outside, socially distanced at all times., the Joseph J. Smith Funeral Home said.
