Harrington, John Michael
July 2019
Image 1
The adventures of John Harrington ended suddenly on Saturday, July 20th, 2019 following a tragic motorcycle accident (although he would probably rather say it was complications resulting from a radioactive spider bite). John is survived by his loving wife Johelis Penaloza, daughters Grecia and Gabriela, mother Margaret (Howard), brother Justin (Emily), and predeceased by his father Michael. John’s fearless nature allowed him, in 51 years, to live a full and accomplished life, including living abroad for 10 years in Venezuela. John climbed mountains, sailed oceans, raised a beautiful family and was a friend and mentor to many. He was known for being a free spirit with a strong sense of self. He never shied away from an engaging debate, he held a wealth of knowledge, he ran a successful and rewarding business, and was sharp as a tack. He will be remembered as an adventurer, father, husband, son, brother and loyal friend. John Michael Harrington, July 3 1968 to July 20 2019. You were loved, and you will be missed. Visitation at Paul O’Connor Funeral Home, Saturday July 27th from 11am to 3pm.
