John Zolezzi …

Im very sad to announce the passing of John Zolezzi . John was a big part of the fleet and owned the seiner, Mary Antoinette. Personally its a big loss for me, I really enjoyed talking to John on my walks past his house or when he saw me  walking by, he always pulled over and we chatted. I got the opportunity today to speak to his Son,John (240) as many people know him by and he said “my dad treated everyone so nice”, and  I couldn’t agree more . You will be missed my friend and the neighborhood will never be the same. My condolences to The Zolezzi Family.
