Tribute & Message From The Family

John J. Levandowski, Jr. passed away peacefully on November 8th, 2019, surrounded by his loving family at the ready age of 72. His genuine cleverness and condition of stubbornness served him well throughout his life. While he had a slow paced older age, John lived an early life in the fast lane.

John was born April 1, 1947, the eldest son of John and the late Grace (Bibeault) Levandowski. He was a 1965 graduate of Bishop Bradley High School. He was a long-time member of the Deerhead Sportsmen's Club in Hooksett. If he couldn't be found, chances are you would find him here; warming a barstool among friends, or in his younger years, around the pool table.

John lived a simple life. He enjoyed watching New England sports, playing pool, and tending to his gardens. He excelled at growing zucchini to near world-record sizes. John's greatest enjoyments were spending time with his daughter Jodie every Saturday morning at the Red Barn Diner, and his caster beans; she takes no offense to sharing the spotlight. John took great pride in his caster bean plants, which grew to exceed the height of his house.

His fondness of gardening was only surpassed by his love of bacon, beer, chocolate milk, canned cashews, cookie dough ice cream, red meat, and cigarettes.

John is remembered by his father, John J. Levandowski Sr.; his son Joseph Levandowski, daughter Jodie (Levandowski) Nazaka and her husband, Anthony Nazaka; his grandson, Jaxyn Levandowski; his siblings, bothers Larry, Matthew, Timothy and wife Roberta, sister Linda, and sister-in-law Shannon, among several nieces and nephews. John is preceded by his mother, Grace (Bibeault) Levandowski; his brother Thomas, and his brother-in-law, Charlie Doucette. He will be profoundly missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him.

Following his wishes, there will be no formal service. However well-wishers are encouraged to write a note of farewell on a Budweiser can and drink it in his honor. A celebration of life is scheduled for 1:00pm on Sunday, November 24 at the Deerhead Sportsmen's Club located at 314 Londonderry Turnpike, Hooksett, NH 03106

John may have led a somewhat reckless life, but he was happy and content in the pursuit of living it. He never bothered anyone, only enjoying things as they may! When I would see him we never parted without saying I love you . I will truly miss hearing these words from him. Peace and love to you my dear brother. May you Rest In Peace

John met you 50 years ago. You were a fine boss and friend. I'm sure there is a bar stool, pool stick with your name on it in Heaven, and plenty of beer. I'm sorry to the family for your loss.
