December 15, 1925 - December 4, 2020
John K Sammon, 94, of Staten Island,NY passed away peacefully in his beloved home of 51 years on December 4, 2020. He was born in Brooklyn, NY on December 15, 1925 to Thomas and Lillian Sammon. He will be reunited again in heaven with his adored wife, Winifred Sammon, and his two sisters, Betty Ahl and Patricia Brady. John proudly served his country as a Corporal in the army in the anti-aircraft and artillery units during World War II. He enlisted at the age of 17, always joking he put a paper that said 18 in his shoes so that he wasn’t lying when he said he was “over 18”, eager to help his country fight the war overseas. John graduated from Bay Ridge High School and attended New York University. His career spanned over 45 years owning various automotive businesses. John spent his retired life with trips to upstate NY to visit his sisters and enjoy the waterfalls with his family, following the stock market daily, watching Turner Classic Movies, journaling every moment and thoughts on his food for the day in his daily planners, practicing his many foreign languages and of course his favorite activity of visiting the many casinos in Atlantic City. Family meant everything to John and he is going to be missed dearly by his children, Douglas Sammon (wife Nancy), Carolyn Mackay (husband Gordon) and John Sammon Jr. His grandchildren, Scott Mackay (wife Melissa), Allison Mercer (husband Justin), Chris Sammon and Nicole Sammon will be thinking of him every day and remembering the amazing man that he was. His newest pride and joys were his three great-grandchildren, Brigid Mackay, Ethan Mackay and Brooke Mercer, who adored him and playing with his many hats. His sister, Lucille Nelson, as well as his many nieces and nephews will also miss their “Uncle Funny”. The family will receive friends at Scarpaci Funeral Home 6389 Amboy Rd SI, NY on Thursday, December 10, 2020 beginning at 10am, followed by a funeral service at 11am and burial directly following to the Cemetery of the Resurrection.
