I am so sorry for your loss. I remember meeting "Pop" at a new year's eve gathering two years ago. I remember his warmth, laughter, and dancing. Clearly he was a very special man. I know he will live on in the hearts of those he left behind. May he Rest In Peace.

Johnny was my Uncle, brother to my dad Joseph Krecko and what a legend he was. He was such a compassionate person who took care of everyone, aunt eleanor and took care of all of his grandchildren. He had a soft spot in his heart for my daughter Kerri, always would ask how is my girl doing. When we would go to the Philliea games he would always go above and beyond to take care of us, would get my daughter chickie and Pete's fries and for the world series parade we had the best seats my daughter being in a wheelchair, gave us the beat handicapped seating. I remember for his 80th birthday he let all of my family try on the world series ring he got. Uncle Johnny lived his life to the fullest and was doing karaoke still at his 90th birthday. Like my son Kenny said he was a beast and my son Joey said he was a Legend. Uncle Johnny u will be missed so much. You're up in heaven now with my dad and your family, your brother Charlie and I know I'll see you again one day. He always called me Jo, so bye for now from Jo, Ken, Kerri, Kenny Joey and the family, until we meet again.
