John was born in Newark to the late Ignazio and Grazielle Visicaro. He was the tenth boy to bless this family, only to be followed by a baby girl.  After his schooling he met Marietta Cicalese.  A whirlwind romance began and the couple married and settled in Newark to start a family of their own.  He provided a great life for his wife and three children, working hard as a carpenter with Local 68.  He was a longtime parishioner at St. Joe’s in Maplewood and was active with the Knights Of Columbus for many years. 

John was a true family man.  He adored his wife and cherished his children and extended family.  He was a proud Italian American and instilled traditions and culture always.  He and Marietta were fortunate to travel to Italy for their 50th wedding anniversary.  He loved this time and almost didn’t return.  Although we are saddened by his passing, we take comfort in knowing he is watching over this family with love and is reunited with his dear “Chicky” & “John John”.

Predeceased by his adored wife Marietta and his beloved son John; he leaves a lifetime of happy memories to his daughters Nancy Lo Brace (Frank) and Grace Smith (Paul); his grandchildren Daniel, Jenna, Julia, Cristina and Talia; and many more dear relatives and friends.
