Obituary

John DiBlasio, 93, formerly of Roseland, N.J., passed away peacefully on May 3, 2019. A Funeral Mass will be offered on Wed., May 8 at Our Lady of Blessed Sacrament Church, Roseland, at 10 a.m., with entombment at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, East Hanover, N.J. Visitation will be on Tues., May 7 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. at Shook-Farmer Funeral Home, 45 Roseland Ave., Roseland. Memories and condolences may be shared at shookscedargrove.com.

Born in Newark, N.J. to the late Santo and Marie DiBlasio (nee: Ervelli), John lived in the Vailsburg section of Newark before moving to Roseland almost 50 years ago. Prior to retiring, he was a Division Chief with the Newark Fire Dept., overseeing the Alarms and Signals and Operators units. He proudly served our country in the U.S. Army.

John was a man that could do anything he set his mind out to accomplish. He was an electrician, artist, tailor, carpenter, philosopher, golfer, traveler, and so much more, but most importantly, he was a husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend to so many. All that knew him loved and admired him.

Predeceased by his beloved wife, Amelia, and sister, Connie Pascucci, John is survived by his sons, Robert S., John Anthony, and his wife, Bess, and Mark J., and his wife, Annette; grandchildren, Monique Landolfi, and her husband, Matt, and Matthew DiBlasio; great-grandchildren, Dominic and Amelia Landolfi; sister, Ann Jordan; and many nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, stjude.org.

Monique - Your grandpa's obituary is written so well and gave such a great summary of a long life filled with accomplishments, love, and an adoring family. I wish I was nearby so I could be there to help you celebrate your grandfathers life. Looking forward to the next time we get together so I can give you a much needed hug. I am sending love to you and your family.
