Dear Friends,
My deepest sympathy and prayers for John and all of you. We were classmates for 9 years at St. Joseph and it was a pleasure to see him again and visit a couple of years ago at a St. Joseph Gala at Aqua Turf.

Sincerely, Jane Altobello Salerno

To Joe and the entire Marinan family
My sincere condolences on John's passing.
John was a brilliant lawyer and a great person. He had a great sense of humor and was always fun to talk to. I enjoyed practicing law with him for several years at Cadden, Ivers & Ivers.
He had an incredible intellect and a great ability to analyze complex cases.
May he rest in peace

To Mary and Joe and the entire Marinan family. I was so sorry to learn of John’s passing. I had known him since he was a teenager in Meriden. He was a bright, caring young man who had a wonderful sense of humor. Our paths crossed a few times in later years and he continued to display these fine qualities. Please accept our heartfelt sympathy.
