Box 135, Boston, MA 02113 John Remembering July 22nd, 1933 - September 27 2015 "Life has been good to me" "Our Cousin Johnny" was born at home at 69 No. Margin Street in the North End on July 22nd, 1933, the fifth child of Leo and Rose Ranauro Fiorini. In the summer of 1937 the family moved to Pittsfield, MA. Johnny was a star football player in high school, college, and in the U.S. Army while stationed in the Bordeaux region of France during the Korean conflict. After his honorable military discharge, this "good man" became a police officer, high school teacher, and football coach for the city of Pittsfield. He and his wife Alice raised a family of three in a very loving and caring way. Of this he was most proud. John's life philosophy was, ' /ork hard, do your best, live graciously and take a good vacation." He is survived by his wonderful wife Alice, son Donald, daughters Judith and Assunta and his grandchildren, sisters Rosemary and Rita, brothers Leo and Michael. He is now reunited with his brother Anthony and sister Theresa. We, your very admiring cousins of the North End of Bosto0, salute you and will miss you so much, but take comfort in knowing that you have the precious gift of etemal life in heaven and you are back in your mother's loving arms. Love and Blessing. Watch over us.
