John was an incredible member of the Pelham community. He participated in village government by attending countless meetings, beginning with his famous introduction of John Cassone of 7th Ave. He cared deeply about being informed and sharing his perspective. He was devoted to the seniors in town where he was both an advocate and a friend to all. I will miss him!

I will always remember John as a concerned resident and a vocal attendee at village board meetings. Sometimes we disagreed but he was never disagreeable. A man of honor. My condolences to his familyl.

I first met John in 1972 when I began dating my wife. He was a man of logic and reason. He always put the best interest of Pelham first and formost. I will forever remember his classic "John Cassone Seventh Ave " at every Village Board meeting.
Rest in peace Mr. Seventh Ave.
