John B. Reposa
Date of Passing:
Reposa, John B., 72, of Narragansett Avenue, Riverside, passed away unexpectedly on June 15, 2021 at the home of a beloved family member.
A lifelong resident of East Providence, he was the son of the late Joseph and Mary (Miller) Reposa.
Mr. Reposa worked at Century Drywall and was a proud member of the International Painters and Drywall Union Local # 195 for 39 years before his retirement.
John was a member of the Silver Spring Golf Course. He enjoyed playing golf, fishing, boating and riding his motorcycle. A sports enthusiast, he was a devoted New England Patriots fan.
His retirement gave him time to focus on the things he truly loved, at the forefront of which was his family. John shone the brightest when with one of his children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren. There was not a day where one of John’s canine companions did not receive affection or a treat from him. John instilled a love of fishing, golfing and sports in those he interacted with, as he shared his passions with them.
John was a pillar in his community and will be deeply missed by not only his family, but those whose who knew and loved him.
He is survived by two sons, Stanley T. Rodwick Sr. of East Providence and Alfred G. Heady of East Providence; a daughter, Kathryn M. Heady of Bristol; two sisters, Lori Ferreira of East Providence and Marie Repoza of Riverside; a grandson, Joseph P. Rodwick and several other grandchildren and several great grandchildren. He was the former husband of Margaret Reposa of Riverside. He was the father of the late William P. Rodwick and brother of the late Gladys Marshall, Thomas, Butchie, David and Joseph Brother Repoza.
His funeral service will be held on Saturday June 26, 2021 in the W. RAYMOND WATSON FUNERAL HOME, 350 Willett Avenue at 4 p.m. Calling hours are 2- 4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in John’s memory to the Potter League of Animals, 87 Oliphant Ln, Middletown, RI 02842 would be deeply appreciated.
