Obituary of John J. Puncavage

It is with deepest sorrow that we announce the passing of John Joseph Puncavage who left this life on June 16, 2022.  He was born on June 29, 1976 in Hartford, CT. John was a resident of Granby, CT for over 35 years before moving to Port Charlotte, Florida in 2017.  He had worked in the Geriatric Healthcare Industry.  John graduated from Granby High School Class of 1995. John obtained his Associates Degree from Central Connecticut State College and regretted not finishing the few credits needed for a Bachelors Degree. John was a member of the St. Casimirs Lithuanian Society in Poquonock, CT and the Salmon Brook Fish & Game Club of Granby Ct.  John was passionate about fishing and archery and had many outings with his good buddy, Brendan Kohrer. He continued fishing in Florida and also spent many days just hanging at the beach with his brother and best friend, Jeff Puncavage.  John struggled throughout his life but was sober and at peace many months before his passing.

(Amy) Puncavage of Leesburg, VA, Brother Jeff Puncavage of Port Charlotte, FL; Aunt Barbara (Puncavage) Duby and her husband, Michael of Windsor Locks, CT.,  Uncle George & Donna Griggs of Somers, CT; cousins, Christopher & Nick Duby of Windsor Locks, CT and niece Ashley Trent of Virginia.  John had many other cousins and friends including his Dog “Bella”who was his constant companion. John was preceded in death by his fraternal grandparents, Joseph (Pinky) & Jane Puncavage; maternal grandparents, Evelyn & Francis Griggs and his closest and favorite uncle, Robert (Robbie) A. Puncavage of Windsor Locks, CT.
