John Victor Guinta passed away at home on March 20, 2019. He was the son of the late James and Linda Guinta. He is survived by his daughter Christie-Lynn Guinta-Kurpis, his brother Jamie Guinta, niece Elizabeth Guinta, and nephew Matthew Guinta. Other survivors include his Aunts and Uncles, Nancy DeSimone, Francis Mandato and Dominick Guinta; cousins, Michelle Cibelli, Suzie Daquila, Frankie Guinta, Denise Guinta-Johnson, Dominick Guinta, Jennifer Guinta, and so many more.
A loving father and a good neighbor, John always gave what he could even if he didn't have much left over for himself. He never truly grew up, he was always a kid at heart and loved having fun and making people laugh. He accepted everyone for who they were and forgave like no other. His heart and soul was truly one of a kind. He never worried about what people thought of him, as long as he was having fun. He was a dare devil who wasn't afraid of anything. He loved being in the outdoors and sitting around camp fires with family and friends. He lived every day like it was his last and created great memories with everyone he came in contact with.
When John arrives at the Gates of Heaven, he will be welcomed with open arms by his Father, his Mother, Uncle Louis Mandato and cousin Robert Mandato. He will also be greeted by his childhood best friend Vincent Gatea. He will truly be missed by so many, but the memories will live on forever.
