Obituary for John Borzoni

God knew he was tired and called him home to rest.
John, age 79, peacefully passed away at his home surrounded by his loving family in Hidden Valley Lake, California.

Beloved son of the late Luigi Pasquale and Maria Angela Borzoni.
Dear brother of the late Anna Maria Cipollina.

He is survived by his loving wife of 56 years to Lourdes Borzoni, and his proud children:
John (Melissa) Borzoni, Stephanie (Peter) Topper, Elaine (Rick) Podesta, Christopher (Jennifer) and Michelle Borzoni. A loving Nonno to Tiffany, Stewart, Katie, Monique, Bianca, Nicolas, Giovanni, Mia, Vincenzo and Stella.
His sister Anita Belluomini, many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends here and in Italy.

John was born in Parma, Italy on April 4th,1939. With his Father, Mother, and two sisters, la famiglia Borzoni sailed to the United States on the Andrea Doria in 1954 to begin their journey in San Francisco.

John was 15 years old when he came to this country. Not knowing a word of English, John wasn’t afraid to do what he knew best and that was work.

John grew up in North Beach frequenting a lot of neighborhood places. He graduated from Galileo High School in 1959 where he met his love, Lourdes. In 1962, they were married at Saints Peter and Paul’s Church.

John became an original shareholder of Sunset Scavengers where “ha lavorato molto sodo”, he worked very hard for 35 years; also working with his Mom and Dad at their North Beach establishment; U S Restaurant.

He looked forward to his out of state hunting trips to Wyoming and Idaho with his friends. He loved duck hunting at his duck club in Willows, with his sons and grandchildren: John, Chris, Tiffany, Stewart, Giovanni, Nicolas, Vincenzo and faithful hunting partner, Patty.

John enjoyed his retired life in the ranchos in Hidden Valley, his “piccola caffèrasca”. He loved to smoke his cigars, raise his pet goats and sheep, work in the garden growing his tomatoes, his table grapes, and his infamous chestnut trees. Come un vero e bravo parmigiano!

He loved watching his favorite cowboy series: Cheyanne, Bonanza, Gunsmoke, western movies, Jeopardy, Wheel of fortune, Giants Baseball, Niners and his favorite team the Pittsburg Stealers.

He was the strongest man we knew with a heart of gold. He was proud of his Italian heritage and was proud to be an American.

We will forever be grateful for all that he did for our family. His name and legacy will live on forever!
