John J. Zenuh
December 12, 1922 ~ August 14, 2018 (age 95)
John J. Zenuh, 95, formerly of Bristol, passed peacefully on Tuesday, August 14, 2018 in Woonsocket, RI surrounded by his family. He was the husband of the late Angela L. (Canova) Zenuh who passed in 1993.
John was born in Southington on December 12, 1922 the son of the late John and Veronica (Zadnick) Zenuh. John was a U.S. Navy veteran of World War II assigned to the U.S.S. Mount McKinley naval ship. Upon returning from duty he was employed by Superior Electric for many years before retiring.
John had a kind heart and was a gentle soul. He enjoyed many things in life like listening to jazz music late into the night in his favorite chair, Sunday family dinners that ended with a sweet, chocolate treat, and watching football in the fall and baseball in the spring. His eyes sparkled with each visit from his family but most especially when spending time with his grandchildren Olivia and Owen. He reveled in their school success, enjoyed being the recipient of Olivia’s baking creations and sharing the excitement surrounding Owen’s victories on the Little League baseball field.
He leaves his daughter, Allison Richardson and her husband, James of Lincoln, RI and their children Olivia and Owen. He also leaves a daughter Karen Zenuh and her family also from Connecticut.
