Beloved husband, father, and friend, Jonathan Daniel Falitico was called home to God on June 18th, 2022, at the young age of 46. Married to his wonderful wife, Mandy, on November 3rd, 1998, they have two amazing and kind daughters, Anna and Rebecca.
Longtime residents of Cuyahoga Falls, Jon and Mandy first met as music students at the University of Akron. Their love of music and God quickly solidified their love for each other. They moved on to Nazarene Bible College shortly after, where Jon studied Pastoral Studies. His kindness, service, and love were always apparent. His work to spread the Gospel of God and the power of Christianity was a calling he felt, saying, "I do anything God calls me to or go anywhere He sends me."
His wife, Mandy, and daughters, Anna and Rebecca, were the joys of his life. He was very proud of his daughters' educational achievements at SCOPE Academy and Miller-South School for the Visual and Performing Arts in Akron. He instilled in his girls the importance of spreading the love of God, his passion for music, and his caring for his neighbors, family, friends, and community. They continue to make him proud.
Jon struggled with health issues in the last several years due to his disabling neurological condition. Although it has taken a toll on his family, finances, body and ease of movement, he always maintained a beautiful and optimistic outlook. He set a loving and influential example for his girls.
Please help support Mandy, Anna, and Rebecca during this unimaginably difficult time. Their service to their church, community, and schools is selfless and unending, and this loss is understandably devastating. Please give whatever you can to help cover funeral costs and living expenses. We also ask that you spread God's love, kindness, and compassion to honor Jon's memory and service.
