John J. Giordano
March 19, 1920 – August 11, 2023
Passed away at the age of 103.
He was the son of Italian immigrants, a loving husband, devoted father and grandfather who proudly served his country, as a master sergeant in the United States Army, during WWII. John loved Omaha, his hometown and knew the city by heart after having spent over 55 years in real estate as a broker, house builder and appraiser, which enabled him to touch many lives. John was deeply rooted in his community and his Catholic faith, an underlying source of meaning and purpose throughout John’s life; however, family and dear friends were his everyday sustenance and consequently, the fortunate recipients of many, Sicilian specialties, such as John’s prized, homemade bread and spaghetti sauce, which he made with love in his own home, until the end.
John is preceded in death by his beloved wife of 65 years, Rita; parents, Dominic and Mary and his four sisters.
John is survived by his children: Cindy Bazis (Mark), Diane Redlinger (John) of Boulder City, NV, Lynn Giordano,
Jeanne Giordano-Smith (Colin), Chris Giordano of Columbia, MO, nine grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren,
several nieces and nephews.
He lived a long, full life and will remain in the hearts of his loved ones forever.
Family will receive friends Thursday, August 17th from 5-7PM at West Center Chapel with Vigil Service at 7PM.
Mass of Christian Burial: Friday, August 18th, 10:30AM at St. Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church (11802 Pacific Street)
Interment: Omaha National Cemetery with full military honors.
