Obituary of John Price Villoresi
Former Henryville, PA resident, John Price Villoresi, age 79, passed away on April 30, 2021, surrounded by family in Wayne, NJ. He died from Inclusion Body Myocitis, a form of Muscular Dystrophy, a disease which he dealt with for the past 15 years.
He was born April 29, 1942 in Paterson, NJ to John and Carmen Villoresi. At a very early age, his love of family was apparent by how he helped care for his brother David, who had Down Syndrome.
As a child, John’s entrepreneurial spirit was obvious as he delivered apples to the cider mill, mowed lawns and performed household chores. He continued this spirit by opening a curtain store in 1972 called Karin’s Kurtains and he turned this one store into 20 thriving stores all throughout New Jersey. John loved what he did and supported his family through this passion for 32 years.
John met the love of his life, Margareta Stromblad, while working at FMC in Morris Plains, NJ. They enjoyed 53 years of a loving marriage.
John is survived by his wife, Margareta; his son Rick (Kathryn) Villoresi; daughters Camille (Hugh) Haynes and Amanda (Jerry) Declet; his grandchildren, Ashely and RJ Villoresi; Christopher J. Cherry, Jr; Erik, Luke, Beck and Ryan Haynes; Juliet and Jerry Jr. Declet; brother Alfred (Carol) Villoresi; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
John is predeceased by his son John-Erik Villoresi; his daughter Kira Villoresi Cherry; his brothers Philip and David Villoresi; and his parents.
Visitation will be on Tuesday, May 4, 2021, 4:00-8:00PM at Tuttle Funeral Home, Randolph. A Funeral Service will be private. Interment at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, East Hanover.
