John Iovine, Jr., 85, of Kenosha, passed away on Friday, June 21, 2019, at Froedtert South-Kenosha Medical Center Campus.

Born in Kenosha, on November 14, 1933, he was the son of the late John Sr. and Maria (Cistaro) Iovine.

John proudly served in the US Navy until his honorable discharge.

On May 2, 1959, he married Santina Fabiano at Mt. Carmel Catholic Church. She preceded him in death on February 27, 2019.

John was employed as a machinist at American Brass until his retirement. Previously he worked at both Ritter and Paielli’s bakeries. This experience led to a love of baking and creating the best birthday cakes for many family members.

He was a member of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church and the Italian American Society, as well as a huge supporter of St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. John enjoyed cooking, carving the perfect turkey and ham for the holidays, grocery shopping, and playing and watching sports. Above all else, John adored his wife, children, and grandchildren.

Survivors include his five children, Mary J. Gajdos, John M. Iovine, Jeff M. (Kaori) Iovine, Frank J. Iovine, and Tina M. (Tom) Richer; and seven grandchildren, Steven (girlfriend: Ashley Walz) Gajdos, Sophia and Julia Iovine, Benjamin, Frankie, and Johnnie Iovine, and Matthew (fiancé: Melissa Davison) Richer, who will be missing his presence at their wedding next week. He is further survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his siblings, Frank D. Iovine, Mario Iovine, and Lucia M. Iovine Fonte.

Visitation will be held on Monday, June 24th, at Proko Funeral Home, from 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will follow at Mount Carmel Catholic Church, 1919 54th Street, at 12:00 noon. Entombment will follow at All Saints Mausoleum with military honors. In lieu of flowers, memorials to St. Jude’s would be appreciated by the family.

To Tina and the Family of John Lovine Jr, my sincere and heartfelt condolences. The fact that your family is dealing with this again so soon is unbearable. I can only image the grief you are feeling. But I have to think that there is peace and comfort in knowing your parents are together again in a place of unbelievable beauty and joy, free from all pain and worry. My heart aches for you loss.

Love you Uncle John! So many wonderful memories of family gatherings.... at holiday time and for impromptu pizza and chicken dinners...of hanging out in the back yard and visiting over coffee or a glass of wine at the kitchen table. You always were quick with a smile or a joke. I will especially treasure the many Pitta Fests with you, Aunt Santina, my Mom, Dad, and sisters. Thank you for passing on your love of cooking and baking to all of us. Your memory lives on in who we are because of you. We have been blessed by your love. "See you afterwhile."

To my dear Uncle John, thank you soo much for all the special birthday cakes and deserts you have made for us throughout the years. They hold fond memories in my heart. You were a great baker and loved to cook . Your recipes will live on especially your Thanksgiving stuffing which I make every year:) Thank you for being a kind loving person who always helped others. You always had a good story to tell and we loved listening to them. You will be missed greatly. Rest in peace, God Bless.
