The hardest part of loss is not the grief, it is the knowing of what was yet to come. The world has lost a bright and beautiful light too soon. Never goodbye, always when we meet again...

We were heartbroken by the news of John's untimely passing.
His smile, his warmth his genuine love for people and for life, these are just a few of the qualities
That will live in our hearts. We will miss his work ethics, our impromptu conversation.
The warm hugs, the handshakes, his voice. John was one of a kind, there is no replacement
We find solace in knowing that he is with his beloved Mom and Dad.
We send our condolences and we share in your grief. Daniela and John Leone

Just one of the many memories we had together. Whenever the "driveway" gets together for something there will be a huge void felt so needless to say you will not be forgotten. As you would always say to me - Love You Buddy. This is not good bye it is see you later.

John we are going to miss you terribly. We can't believe you're gone. We've been friends since we were babies. Like you always said "We've been friends since we were in the crib. I MEAN IN THE CRIB!". Going to miss our Atlantic City trips with Char and Jean. Going to miss the dinners. Going to miss how you gave me a headache with your repetitive stories. God I'm going to miss you. Like you said life is too short and in this case it is. You always said "I love you". I said it sometimes but not all the time because you knew I'm a man of few words. But I Love You and Miss You.

The world is definitely alot less brighter now that you are gone. We will never forget all the great advise and life lessons you taught us. We've laughed and cried together and now all we can do is honor your memory. You were a great friend and "Uncle" to Peyton and will be missed beyond measure. Cadillac you were one of a kind my friend and will never be forgotten❤

We loved every minute with you! Your smile would lite up the darkest room. We will miss you forever Rest In Peace...until we meet again. We love you John!

Thinking of you and your family John! I'm so sorry for your loss!!

Posted by Erin Taylor - West Chester, PA - Friend   September 18, 2019

Johnny was one of those rare "bigger than life" people. He was always thinking about others. I'd get random texts from him saying "I love you guys. Say hi to Mary, how's she doin?" Then there was the Johnny talking to me about teaching kids how to save and properly invest money and asking for ideas. Then there's Johnny bringing us his home made wine as a gift. He was always thinking about his "guys" and making sure they were busy and taken care of. Our neighborhood will never be the same without him. I hope wherever you are, you are having a laugh and doing what you do best, thinking and doing for others.

Johnny was a unique human being and our lives are richer for having known him. I never met a happier person, so full of life and smiles and radiating love. We will miss him. We're away and not able to make it to the service, but send our deepest condolences to Johnny's family. He talked about you, and his mother and father with such love. We're so sad to have heard this news of his passing and will miss taking to him.

The word "great" is thrown around a lot these days. Here is what "great" is:

A person who answers the phone when I call him.

A person who responds to a a text message.

A person who is always able to find the time to smoke a great cigar out back at his house.

A person who will go to Penny's Diner at anytime with you to grab a meal.

A person who has your back in times of trouble.

A person who asks how your 8 year-old daughter is doing in her soccer games.

I found "great" and his name is Johnny "Cadillac" Natale.

To Donna, Vicky, Charlene, and all his cousins and family, I want thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there for Johnny. It means the world to me knowing that he has this support system. Without his father, my son is devastated. I am so worried about him. My heart breaks as well and I will forever remember him and all the good memories we have shared. I was with him half my life (met him at 14 and parted ways at 30). Even through the difficult times I have love for him and always will. He had way of making us all laugh and my family (my dad, sister, etc.) still love him as well and are heartbroken. You all will be my family forever and you are in my prayers. I know John will be looking over his son from heaven. Love you and may God keep him and bless him.

The Greenbaums and Ravenscliff lost a great big personality and a great big heart! Johnny you made everyone feel loved and special and for that I thank you and will always remember you! Thank you for always supporting my kids and for your kindness to my parents when they were here. We shared that love of our parents and the hurt of losing them. I also know how much you treasured Charlene and how proud you were of little Johnny...2 things you always told me! We are so grateful to you for all you did to make the world a better and prettier place! Love you always, Johnny

I was very saddened by this news by the loss of such an inspirational man to many including myself! Johnny was one of my first bosses as kid and I looked up to him in many ways, he's a neighborhood legend that left us way to soon and I'm sure many will have amazing stories to share about how he was and how he lived his life. Like you always use to tell me be good stay out of trouble and love you buddy! Love you too and you'll be missed rest in piece with your mother and father in heaven!

My beloved strong handsome brother, Johnny. You were larger than life! I still can't believe I will never see you again. You were the best brother a sister could ever have. You were always there for me and my kids. You are the rock of our family. You always made us laugh. I miss you beyond words and I love you with all my heart. This is such an intense pain and sadness. There is a hole in hearts that will never be healed. You were taken from us too soon. I will always cherish the memories and I love you more than words could ever say. Donna
