John Walsh, 57, of St. Petersburg, Florida, passed away on May 21, 2018.
Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, John spent much of his youth at the Milwaukee County Stadium, beginning a lifelong love of sports. In his early teens, his family moved to St. Petersburg, where John graduated from Dixie Hollins High School, and where he lived for the rest of his life.
John was a painter, who believed that good work done well was in the service of others. John will be remembered as a generous soul who went out of his way to help his family, friends and others.
John had a quick wit and was always ready with some form of trivia. Nothing surpassed John’s love for his family and his desire to see each of us to succeed on our own path.
John is survived by his mother Janet, and his loving family and friends. John will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
A Funeral Mass will take place on Saturday, June 2, at 11:00am at Holy Cross Catholic Church, located at 7851 54th Avenue North, St. Petersburg. Visitation will be at the church starting at 10:30am.
