51 year Resident of Santa Cruz

A private family ceremony has been held for John Puzziferro who passed away  unexpectedly at the age of 63.  Born in Newark, New Jersey, John and his family moved to Santa Cruz while he was in his teens, and the family made their home in the San Lorenzo Valley where he attended local schools.  John was a talented craftsman and enjoyed working in the outdoors.  He operated his own landscape maintenance business, and leaves behind many clients who will miss his talent, hard work and commitement to their projects.

His hobbies included Reading...he was almost never without a book in hand, gardening, tinkering with some car or another, wandering in the woods and eating great food. 

Many fond memories of John, will continue to be cherished by his family, Daughter Milynn, son Chris, Mother Lea, Father Jim, siblings James, Laurie, Linda and Jeff, and the Apple of his eye grandaughter Matilynn and her brother Evan.

John was preceded in death by his Stepfather "Pops" Ken Goodman and his Stepbrother Gregg Goodman.
