January 30, 1938 – August 16, 2023
Dr. John F. Bolamperti, age 85, passed away on August 16, 2023, in Gunnison, CO. He was born on January 30, 1938, in Omaha, NE, to Richard and Palma (Cortese) Bolamperti, the third of five children.
John married Mary Jane Cronin of Webster City, IA , on August 29, 1959. He graduated from Creighton University in 1961 and Creighton University School of Dentistry in 1964. An exceptionally gifted dentist, John practiced in Omaha for 40 years, retiring in 2006. He was a lifelong resident of Omaha, while spending summers in Gunnison, CO, for the past 25 years.
Fiercely devoted to his faith, family and friends, he was second to none as a grandfather, father and husband. He cherished spending precious time with his family, hunting and fishing, and creating fabulous meals. His sense of humor was legendary. John was intelligent, successful, generous, humble, hardworking and funny. He was always a pleasure to be with and he was blessed with an immense talent for making everyone feel like they were important to him.
His wisdom and advice are irreplaceable. John lived a full, happy life. He was loved by many and the world is a little less joyful without him. He will be missed.
John is survived by his wife, Jane; children: Ted J. Bolamperti (Crystal), Matt Bolamperti (Mary), Christine Schmidt (Jack), Jill Corbett (Kevin); ten grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; brothers: Richard, Ted and Terry Bolamperti; brother-in-law, Jess Wills; numerous nieces and nephews and too many friends to count.
