After more than a year long battle with pancreatic cancer, John DiSciorio passed away at his home on May 6th. Born in Yonkers, NY on February 18, 1950 to Rose DiSciorio (deceased) and John Troetti (deceased). John is survived by his wife Katharine, children Meaghan (Damon Runnals), Erin (TJ Minnig), and Sean (Jennifer DiSciorio), grandchildren Ava, Lucas, Willa, and Pippa, and brother James (Maureen DiSciorio).
John was a fixer, whether it was a car, a front porch, a kitchen appliance, or a pool John could fix it (but no electrical problems those he saved for a professional). His sometimes grumpy exterior hid an excellent sense of humor, a deep well of kindness, and a willingness to help others. A curious person, John was interested in how things worked and the craftsmanship that went into them. He loved learning about vintage cars, steam locomotives, WWII airplanes, rifles and watches.
From a very young age he enjoyed the detailed work of model building, a hobby that he continued over the course of his life, as well as, meticulously restoring turn of the century rifles.
John was a life long competitive trap shooter. At Boulder Trap Club he earned his 50 straight patch and became involved in the club as a Range and Safety Officer as well as a discipline head.
He was a lover of pasta (any kind), travel (beach and sun), truly terrible movies (Carnosaur anyone?), wine (Cabernet Sauvignon), and spending time with his family. He was a mean cribbage partner, loved to rub it in when he was winning at dominoes, and always had time to do arts, crafts and games with his grandkids.
He was a loving husband, father and grandfather and his loss has left a giant hole in all of our lives.
John will be missed but always in our hearts.
Our prayers are with you all at this sad time.
Sondra & Kevin
Sondra and I will truly miss his company.
Our heartfelt and deepest wish is for Kathy and John’s entire family to find Peace in his passing.
It is with sadness Sondra and I will be unable to attend John’s service. You all will be in Sondra’s and my Heart and on our minds then and always.
Thank you John for sharing your time, wisdom, humor and passions.
Missed but never forgotten.
With much love,
Kevin and Sondra
We will miss his friendship very much. Early Saturday mornings at the Shotgun Range will never be the same without John. We always had some great conversations prior to the arrivals of other members. May he rest in peace and always be remembered.
