John Anthony Volino

May 20, 1941 — February 25, 2024


John Anthony Volino, known affectionately as John to his friends and family, passed away peacefully at his home on February 25, 2024, at the age of 82. Born on May 20, 1941, in New York City, NY, but spent his early years in Collingswood, NJ, later moving to Short Hills, NJ.  John's life was a testament to the love, dedication, and joy he brought to those around him.

At the age of 17  John met the love of his life, Georgeann. Their love blossomed, and they were married in 1963, marking the beginning of a beautiful partnership that would last 61 years.
Professionally, John dedicated many years of his life to the railroads as a Freight Conductor. His commitment to his colleagues was evident through his role as a Loyal Union Rep of UTU Local 1441, where he tirelessly advocated for their rights and well-being. John's sense of community service was further exemplified by his pioneering spirit as the First EMT on the Westfield, NJ Rescue Squad, a role in which he served with valor and compassion.

John's interests were as varied as they were engaging. He found solace in the gentle waves while boating and excitement in the roar of engines at NASCAR races. The beach was a place of tranquility for John, where he could bask in the sun's warmth and the company of his loved ones. His precision and focus were evident in his love for target shooting, a hobby that he approached with the same dedication as every other aspect of his life.

The family was the cornerstone of John's world. The memories created around the kitchen table were cherished and will be fondly remembered by his loving wife, Georgeann, and their children: Philip J. (Judy) Volino, John P. (Nikki) Volino, and Angela M. (Adrian) Volino. John's legacy will live on through his adored grandchildren: Paige E. Rowley, Charlotte L. Rowley, James (Tony) France, Jeffery R. Fowler, great-granddaughter 
Inara Serra France, and very special family friend Rusty McGuffin. A very big Thank You to Agape Care for giving him care when he needed it the most. A Special Thank You to Angel Jamison with Agape Care whom he loved very much. 

John's life was characterized by the loving, kind, and generous spirit he embodied. These qualities were not only the words that best described him, but they were also the principles by which he lived every day. His ability to give freely and love unconditionally has left an indelible mark on the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing him.

As we bid farewell to John Anthony Volino, we celebrate a life well-lived, full of love, laughter, and the joy of a family united. His memory will continue to be a beacon of light for his family, guiding them with the wisdom and kindness he shared so generously. John's departure from this world is not an end, but a continuation of his spirit that will forever resonate with those he touched.
