ForeverMissed
John Louis Pozzobon, 56, was born on March 15, 1964 in Vineland, New Jersey and went to be with the Lord on April 16, 2020 at Inspira Hospital.  He had been on dialysis for ten years and passed due to complications from the coronavirus.

He attended St. Mary’s School in East Vineland, St. Augustine Prep in Richland and received an associate’s degree from Cumberland County College.  

John worked in sales and management his entire life, a passion evident from childhood.  He loved selling items such as Christmas cards, magazines and seeds to the neighborhood.  His greatest joy was beginning his sales career as a shoe salesman, selling shoes and aiding customers in the purchasing of shoe accessories.  He received the Golden Shoe Award with his efforts and worked up to management very quickly.   He went on to manage grocery stores and restaurants. 

John was a people person and enjoyed going to work every day, treating the establishment as if it were his own.  Despite health issues, he continued working in sales, most recently at Mattress Firm, becoming one of their top sales people.  John was an avid sports fan.  Before his disabilities, he loved playing baseball, golfing and bowling, receiving many awards.  He was a diehard Phillies fan and the Dallas Cowboys were his football pick.    John loved many types of music and loved to sing and participate in karaoke.  He was a trivia lover and could challenge anyone especially in sports; and his knowledge of artists and their songs was phenomenal.

John is survived by his parents Dorothy Jean (Franks) and Edmond Pozzobon; two brothers, David Pozzobon and Steven Pozzobon; and nephew and godson Michael Pozzobon.  He is also survived by his Uncle Lou and Aunt Joan Franks and Uncle Fred and Aunt Evelyn Franks.  He will be dearly missed by his “forever friend” Felicia Petka.  He also leaves behind his beloved cat, Hootie.  John is also survived by many special cousins and cherished friends.  He was predeceased by his maternal grandparents Louis and Dorothy Franks, and his paternal grandparents, John and Rita Pozzobon.

With concern for all during this pandemic, funeral services will be private with a Celebration of Life at a later time.  Memorial contributions may be made to the American Kidney Fund, 11921 Rockville Pike, Suite 300, Rockville, MD  20852 or to the charity of one’s choice.  Written condolences may be shared on the website of FertigFuneralHome.com.

Wow. I am a stunned and saddened at the loss of my friend John.

I will always remember all of the fun times we had at the Prep and for many years after high school. You could always make me laugh, Pozz, and you had an infectious laugh and joy for life.

My deep condolences to his family and all those who counted John as a friend.

Rest in Peace, my friend.
