  5. Dear John, the memories we have at Ruth’s Chris, Emerson Spa, Marco Island are the BEST! I loved the Bellini’s at 8 a.m. that you made. Let’s not forget the Big Boy Mai Tai’s. Lori, Me, You and Gary had so many fun times together. Memories that are instilled in our brain, forever. We always loved coming to your home and you cooking for us. You truly were the chef! You were the best Brother In Law anyone could ask for. You were the most generous, kind, sincere person. You were always there to pick up the pieces no matter what. I know you are now at Peace. There is no more suffering that you did not deserve. You will be missed more than words can say. God Bless You John. May you Rest In Peace. Love you. xoxo

  6. “Unforgettable”

    Unforgettable, that’s what you are
    Unforgettable though near or far
    Like a song of love that clings to me
    How the thought of you does things to me
    Never before has someone been more

    Unforgettable in every way
    And forever more, that’s how you’ll stay
    That’s why, darling, it’s incredible
    That someone so unforgettable
    Thinks that I am unforgettable too

    Unforgettable in every way
    And forever more, that’s how you’ll stay
    That’s why, darling, it’s incredible
    That someone so unforgettable
    Thinks that I am unforgettable too

  7. candleBig John – Now you will have the time to enjoy all the things you loved in life.
    You can go fishing at Kissena Park, or on the Beaverkill and at Eldridge Preserve!
    Maybe even another trip on a boat out of Captree for weakfish. Remember how everyone laughed at you when you used that big jelly worm. That is until you caught that 12 pounder on it and won the pool!!
    How about some hunting? Maybe another trip to Maine for whitetails? Or South Carolina for hogs?
    You can head down to the keys with Frankie and Joseph for tarpon and snook. Just make sure Joe pays for dinner at least one time….
    Maybe ice hockey at 2:00 AM? Next time try to remind me to bring my skates.
    I’m sure that Lefty has a roof that needs to be finished? Oh that’s right. I forgot. You just dabbled in physical labor so I guess Frankie will need to take care of that one.
    One more serving of Ninny’s spaghetti sauce? Maybe not! Did you ever wonder why she ate an American cheese sandwich on white bread while we ate that sauce???
    I hope and pray that in Heaven the fish are always biting, the deer are all 10 pointers and the Rangers win the Stanley Cup every year.
    Your namesake cousin,
    Little John

  8. My dearest friend, Dear John,
    How do you say goodby to a friend that was there all the time?
    Your kindness will forever stay with all of us. You will be missed by the entire Gabbaizadeh family. RIP my friend. You are truly the best.

  9. John and I met the second day of classes at St. John’s University when we were freshman in September 1976. I will be forever grateful for the friendship that developed. God bless him and God bless Lori. May they both find peace now. John Ross, always know your father was highly regarded and respected by anyone who knew him.

  10. candleI am at such a loss with this news. I worked for John many years ago when he was a chiropractor. He helped me at a very tough time in my life and I’ll never forget the talks we had. I am appreciative to him for helping me get back on track. Heaven has an amazing angel. My deepest sympathy to his beautiful family. Rip sweet friend.
