John's father and uncles owned Engoglia's Bakery in the old neighborhood for years. John continued to bake the family recipe for family and friends after the bakery's closing. John recently retired from Sidari's wholesale foods division where he was always known for treating his clients right and keeping them smiling. John also liked to bartend at various party centers around the area for fun.
Dad was known for his bread recipe but here is his life recipe...Dad is like a fine spirit....Bring him to a get together and he'll be the talk of the party. Spend some time with him and you'll be guaranteed to smile. Spend a lot of time with him and you'll likely be in trouble!!!
