The Regoli family knew John as the patriarch of the family. He was the calming presence that helped everyone navigate life’s twists and turns. As the rock of the family, his mission was to take care of everyone - a big heart and a never ending mission to look after those he loved so dearly. As a devout man of the Catholic faith, John was well respected by family, friends, and parishioners. He was known for his short, sweet, and profound homilies. He enjoyed spending time walking, golfing, skiing, and riding water slides. A simple man who truly knew what was important in life…family!
