John DeNardo, loving husband, father, and grandfather, passed away on Wednesday, December 22nd at the age of 89 in Hackensack, New Jersey. His determination and fighting spirit could be seen right up until his last moments, and he is at peace.

John then went on to work for New York City, his positions including the NYC Subway System, The NYC Bridge and Tunnel Authority, and Superintendent for the New York City Housing Authority for 25 years, retiring in the late 1980’s. John also worked for the United States Navy as a contract inspector for 8 years after retiring. His commitment and dedication to his long career are noteworthy and show the merit with which he was regarded.
