John Osorio, 67

February 13, 2021

John Osorio, 67 of Rockaway Prk, NY, passed away on Saturday, Feb 13, 2021 at Mt Sinai Hospital in Manhattan NY.

He was the husband of Mili Osorio with whom he shared the last 15 years of a beautiful life.

Born in Brooklyn, he was the son of the late Jesus and Maria Mercado Osorio.

He graduated from East New York Vocational Tec High School .

John loved his job working for New York City Transit Authority for 36 and a half years. He was a track worker and welder burner.

He was a very talented guitar player, playing both electric and acoustic guitars. He would play every night and that talent was passed onto his son, Danny. He loved listening to the Beatles, Jimmy Hendrix, and Bob Dylan music; he always said it was good for the soul.

He loved playing paddle ball at Rockaway Beach NY.

He was very good in making Amish buggy Lamps and he enjoyed taking trips to Pennsylvania on weekends. And loved to shop the vintage shops here in Lancaster.

He had a great personality and was always joking. One of his favorite things was walking the board walk at Rockaway beach every night.

In addition to his wife, Mili, he is survived by his sons: Christopher of Lancaster, Daniel married to Bobby Jean of Seaford, NY and Timothy of Far Rockaway, NY; his 6 grandchildren Selena, Danny, Dylan, Avery Rose, Tommy and Lorenzo and by great grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister Zulma Toro of Brooklyn NY.

My deepest condolences and prayers for the Osorio family. John spoke so much of all of you. We, John’s fellow transit workers will never forget John’s humorous antics that kept us in high spirits with lots of laughter. John and I spoke about the Lord Jesus Christ on many occasions. The Lord was near and dear to his heart and I’m sure this comforted his heart in his final days before transitioning the world.
