John has two brothers. Frank and Tom. When I learned of Johns passing (on this website as well), I sent a letter to his house (“to The Family of John Farina” 1512 Lurting Ave, Bronx, NY 10461) offering my condolences and sharing some remembrances, assuming someone would get the mail eventually. I received an nice Email reply from Tom and just a few days ago I received a letter from Frank . You could try contacting them at this address as I did.

I don’t know that I feel comfortable sharing the brothers email and home addresses publicly on this forum, but feel free to contact me directly c/o I would be happy to forward any communications to him for you.

I would surely attend any memorial service in his honor. John also worked at Zoo-Rama Inc Pet Shop at 2566 East Tremont Ave. Bronx, NY 10461 He was well loved there as well.

In case you don’t know the details, as I understand it John walked from the pet shop down the block to the RiteAid Pharmacy to check his blood pressure (I don’t know the details; perhaps he didn’t feel right). He basically walked in and collapsed of a massive heart attack and never regained consciousness. He died that day – May 25, 2016.
