John W. Mucci
John "Johnny" W. Mucci, 65, of Davenport, FL passed away peacefully on Thursday, Jan 23, 2020 surrounded by his loving family.

John's first and true love was, is, and always will be his family. For 32 years he and his wife Kelly shared a love many could only dream of - as soulmates, best friends, and true partners for life. From their shared love grew John's true pride and joy - his beautiful family, upon whom he doted unabashedly. John's love for his children was unconditional and never-ending. His passion, "brutal" honesty and loyalty to all he knew were just a few of his most endearing qualities. Second to John's love for his family, his passion for music and his genius at the piano and keyboard contributed hours of joy to his beautiful, artistically-fulfilling life. For 53 years, he shared his passion for music in some of the best bands in the land- from his younger days spent in garages in his hometown, to hours practicing with new friends wherever he wound up. He considered all of his fellow band members "family", enmeshed by the same love of music. John's legacy will carry on through his children and grandchildren, to whom he's granted his gifts of passion, commitment, love and artistry, and his loss has forever changed their lives.

John is survived by his wife Kelly Mucci (DeGennaro); sons Matthew and Anthony of Davenport, FL; daughter Lexie and wife Crystal of Benton, Maine; son Mitchell and wife Amanda and John's grandsons - Chandler and Charlie, of Columbus, OH. He is preceded in death by his parents Albert and Billie Mucci; brother Albert J. Mucci Jr.; and father and mother-in-law Anthony and Janis DeGennaro.

Kelly and family, I am so sorry to hear that John passed. Tom Parks told me today. I’m sure he and Bob are in heaven starting a new band! God be with you! You’re all in my prayers

Dear Kelly and family,
I was shocked and saddened to learn of Johnny's passing. Some of my fondest childhood memories include him from the many times we visited Uncle Al's house in Conneaut. I always admired his musical talent and wished I had inherited a little of it. In my mind and heart he'll always be my very cool older cousin. I pray that God gives you and your family strength and peace in knowing that he's been reunited with his mom, dad, brother, and his Uncle Tony.

Mrs Mucci I am very sorry for your loss and you and your family are in my family’s prayers. I remember all the performances you two put on for us at Saybrook Elementary and poking your head in our classrooms from time to time checking on us made us feel appreciated and the love the two of you shared was amazing to watch. He will be missed by all as he was loved by everyone he knew. Love Always Dameon and Julianna Cooper
