Date of Birth: December 19, 1946
Date of Death: October 19, 2019
With great sadness, the family of John C. Bellante announces his passing on October 19, 2019 at the age of 72. We are forever grateful to have had such a wonderful husband, father, brother, uncle and friend. John was born on December 19, 1946 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Joseph and Louise Bellante. He spent his childhood in Richmond, Kentucky before moving to San Jose, California at the age of 15. John had a long career as a high school educator teaching business and accounting classes. He also sold real estate in San Jose and Santa Cruz County during the summers. He retired from teaching in 2007 and he and his wife, Laura, moved to Arizona to enjoy the desert beauty and life by the pool. John loved to have fun and one of his passions was being the commissioner for a fantasy football league in Anthem, Arizona. He also liked to paint and Laura has quite a collection of his paintings that adorn their home, as do some of his friends. He was so talented! While writing this, a dear friend told me, "Remember to tell the world that he has many friends that he left behind. We all love him dearly." John is survived by his wife of 34 years, Laura, daughter, Paige; siblings, Mary Ann Infantino (Jerry), Jane Pardini (Tom), and James Bellante.
A Celebration of Life will be held on November 24th at the residence of Tom and Jane Pardini. Family and friends that would like to visit are welcome anytime from 2-6 p.m.
