John J. Catalano, lifelong resident of St. Louis, MO, loving father, cherished brother, and friend to many, passed away peacefully on May 7, 2019. All who knew John will tell you that he was a gifted carpenter, hunter extraordinaire, and according to his brother Matt – a halfway decent fisherman. John was a life-loving, laugh-having, always-smiling friend to all, defined by his “high tolerance for anything that made life fun”.
John leaves behind four sons, Nick (28), Tony (25), Jack (17), and Joey (15) who will miss him dearly but will strive to keep their eyes forward and futures bright despite losing their beacon. He is also survived by his five siblings Mark, Mary, Matt, Monica and Paul, who will do their best to carry on his light, love, amazing strength and humor.
In his passing John asked simply and humorously that we let his infinite circle of friends know “HE GONE”!
In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family humbly accepts monetary donations to the www.GoFundMe.com account “Support Jack and Joey Catalano’s Bright Future” fund.
A celebration of life will be planned for mid-summer at a date to be determined.
