John Esposito

Obituary of John Esposito


Born to Carmine and Emelia Esposito of the Bronx, New York.  Poppie passed peacefully in his sleep at the age of 101 and reunited with our beloved angel, Nonna.  Our dad served our country valiantly in the Army during World War II where he fought in the Pacific Theater for five years.  When the war ceased, Pop married his love, our mom, Theresa (Nonna) and together began their life which span into 70 years.  Dad owned several businesses in his lifetime.  In Arizona, Poppie was an integral part of Conti’s Ristorante and Larocca’s.  Our family has been blessed to have had a loving, selfless man as our dad!  Poppie leaves behind his daughters, Lynn (Tom) Gianninoto, Gail Larocca, grandchildren Niccolle (Christopher) Clifford, Christopher (Kelly) Larocca, Scott (Jenna) Gianninoto, John (Carlie) Gianninoto.  His precious great-grandchildren Isabella and Johnnie Gianninoto, Michael Gianninoto & Mia Larocca. Our family would like to thank our dad’s caregivers, Libby & Chasity for their love & devotion.  A celebration of life will be held when it is safe to do so.
