John’s strong character, values, work ethic and unique sense of humor were well recognized and respected by the people who knew and loved him. He will be deeply missed by his beloved wife of 66 years, Lucille, his children Elizabeth (Betty) Lasker and her husband Tom of Berlin, Thomas Faenza of Rocky Hill, Catherine Faenza Milewski and her husband Steve of Newington, and Joanne Koza and her husband Rick of Wethersfield, three granddaughters, Nikki (Milewski) Wallden and her husband Stephen, Jen Faenza, and Amy Milewski, a sister-in-law, Pasqualina Faenza, a brother-in-law, Reverend C.

Our deepest sympathies to the Faenza family on the passing of John and Lucille. Our family got to know them and some of you at both Cedar Mountain Commons and Jefferson House when we would visit Marilyn. Unfortunately, Marilyn succumbed to the virus on May 14th. You and your folks were always so nice. May you have fond memories.
Our condolences, the Fusco and Kaminski Families
