Obituary for John Morrone

John Morrone
Monmouth Junction, NJ

John Morrone, 62, of Monmouth Junction, NJ, passed away peacefully on Monday, March 19, 2018 at Princeton Medical Center surrounded by his loving family. Born on January 1, 1956 in Manhattan, New York, he was the son of Biagio and Lellina Morrone. He grew up in the Bronx, New York. He attended and graduated from Herbert H. Lehman College.

Following college, he pursued a career in Manhattan, New York where he was a dedicated employee in the insurance industry for many years. During his career, he worked hard and experienced much success in the positions he held as an Account Manager at Wilcox, a Collections Representative for AIG, and Reinsurance Accountant at American Re.

John married his former wife on February 14, 1982 after working in the insurance industry.

John’s proudest accomplishment and role was being a father. A doting father, John, loved and adored his children. He always wanted the best for them and wished for them to be happy. His children made life worth living. He worked hard to give all his children the best childhood. Attending cub scout’s events and a Yankee game with his son, taking his daughters to father-daughter dances, and dressing his children in elaborate Halloween costumes, and dressing up as the Easter Bunny for a township Easter Egg Hunt were among some of his fondest memories. He also loved being a Pop Pop and enjoyed the time he spent with his grandson Daniel. He thought of himself as a very giving person and took great pride in his family and home.

John’s happiness came from providing happiness to others. He loved making jokes, telling stories, music, cars, and acting silly to see others laugh and smile. He possessed unequivocal and incomparable passion for life and love. He fought and sacrificed much over the years to show his family and friends how much he cared for them. He was a distinguished member of St Cecelia’s chapter of the Knights of Columbus and spent a great deal of time volunteering to procure blood donations at Princeton Medical Center. Any hobby was of interest to him if it meant being closer to someone he found dear. His loss is a great tragedy to all who knew him and he leaves behind a legacy impossible to forget.

He is preceded in death by his beloved parents Lellina and Biagio Morrone; a son, Stephen (1987); 2 brothers, Joseph (1997) and Rudolph (2011); and his niece Dawn Marie Zerbo (2009); and nephew Charles Calco (2009).

Surviving are his dear son John of Hillsborough, NJ; 2 loving daughters, Michelle and husband Kamil Demich of Bridgewater, NJ, and Nicole Morrone of Hillsborough, NJ; 2 brothers, Luciano and wife Monica of Long Island, NY, and Vincent and wife Maria of Yonkers, NY; his sister, Loretta Calco of Palm Coast, FL; his adored grandson, Daniel; and his former wife, Christine Morrone of Hillsborough, NJ.

Viewing will be held Tuesday, March 27, 2018 from 2-4 and 7-9pm at the Branchburg Funeral Home 910 US Highway 202 South, Branchburg, NJ 08876.
Funeral services will start with a prayer at the funeral home at 8:45am on Wednesday, March 28, 2018 followed by a 10:00am funeral liturgy at St. Cecilia R.C. Church in South Brunswick, NJ.

Committal will be private.
