Obituary

The Loconsolo family is heartbroken that Mr. John A. Loconsolo left us on April 1,2021. He was
an amazing father and businessman who was blessed with 101 years of life on this earth. Born
to Jack and Victoria Loconsolo in Brooklyn, New York. His father wanted his son to be born in
the Greatest City on Earth. He partnered with his father early on starting their own contracting
firm painting churches and schools for the Diocese of Brooklyn. Other ventures of note include
the first repaint of the Verrazano Bridge and the World Trade Center. His projects grew in
number and spanned down the east coast to Florida and out west to Las Vegas and California.
He was President of LoCon Realty Corp, Loconsolo Properties and Jack Loconsolo & Company.
Mr. Loconsolo was a member of the Board of Directors of the Brooklyn Federal Savings Bancorp
where he served as Chairman of the Bank. He was a past president of the Columbus Citizens
Foundation and a founding member. During his Presidency from 1983 to 1985 he established a
College Scholarship Committee. He was a member of the Knights of Malta, Pontifical Equestrian
Order of St. Gregory the Great and the American Society of the Italian Legions of Merit.
With the passing of his daughter Victoria, he established the Victoria Loconsolo Foundation
which he personally funds. Since 1984 the Foundation has supported educational institutions,
foster care agencies and other worthy causes.
He was also a Director of Futures in Education a non-profit organization for the Diocese of
Brooklyn & Queens. He initiated a “Be an Angel Program”, part of the Futures in Education
Foundation. This program enables parents to give their children a proper Catholic Education
that they otherwise could not afford. His Foundation personally supports approximately 100
children in the program.
He enjoyed spending his time in Shelter Island and New York City with his family. He had
compassion and empathy for the people he met throughout his life. He was a great storyteller
and a good listener. He was self-educated and successful throughout his career as a Real Estate
Developer and Investor. When asked for some words of wisdom he would simply say, “I never
thought I knew enough”.
Mr. Loconsolo was predeceased by his beloved wife of many years Jean and his eldest daughter
Victoria and his son Giacomo. He leaves his children Maria Loconsolo, Jacqualine Gates,
Antoinette Chiaro, Regina Dedick, Janet D’Auria, Elizabeth Sposato, and Rosemarie Rizzo and his
sons-in-law Andrew Dedick, Michael Sposato and Robert Gates. He was blessed with twelve
grandchildren and 11 great -grandchildren. The hole in our hearts can only be replaced with all
the good, loving memories he provided us with and his sense of family first.
Visitation will be Thursday April 8 at McLaughlin & Sons Funeral Home, 9620 Third Avenue ,
Brooklyn, NY 11209 from 9:30-11:30am. A mass will be said at St. Anselm Church in Bay Ridge
Brooklyn at twelve noon. His burial will be at St. John’s cemetery in Queens. A family reception
will follow. Donations may be made to the Angels Program in his name.
