My dad passed away this week and my brothers and I created a website dedicated to his memory. If you have stories of my dad, however insignificant they may seem to you, please take a moment to visit http://johncodignotto.com and sign the guestbook with your memories.
Former long time Wantagh resident John Codignotto Jr. passed away on January 20th, 2011 at the age of 69 with his whole family by his side. He was a father, mentor, & hero to his three devoted sons, John (48), Tom (45) & Nick (41) from his thirty year marriage to their loving mother Barbara Codignotto.
