So sorry to hear that John is gone. He was a true war hero and a wonderful man. I have fond memories of him in south Rockford and the booth at On the Waterfront in later years. I was just rereading his wonderful account of his World War II bravery in the article that appeared in the Register Star. I thank him again for his service to this country. Condolences to the Giardin family. He lived a good long life despite the Normandy invasion. His service to Rockford and the Venetian Club is most appreciated. May you find comfort and may he rest in peace with his family in Heaven.

Johnny was loved deeply by my papa and our California family. My dad was most excited when he knew that cousin Johnny and Val were coming to visit. I have many fond memories of him and know that he is reunited with so many beautiful people in heaven. God's love and healing to the family. I had fallen asleep in the back yard and woke up thinking of my papa and Johnny, looked up in the sky and saw their names written. Some won't see it but it's clear as day to me.
