In Memory of John Zappavigna

John Zappavigna, age 60, of Tinley Park, IL, passed away peacefully on October 11, 2021 after a courageous battle with leukemia. John lived a life of laughter and compassion for friends, family, and hobbies which included, but were not limited to, cigars, Miller High Life, classic car television shows, eating pizza and Italian beef sandwiches, boat rides in Michigan, and hanging out with his grand-puppies Ziva and Spencer.

During his 10 month battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, John received countless numbers of blood and platelet transfusion treatments. These transfusions allowed John to continue to fight the tiresome battle against cancer. In honor of "Johnnie Zapp" as many called him, the family is raising and donating funds to benefit Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to the Zappavigna Family.
