RAVENA Ė John S. Gatt,
80, went to be with the angels on March 11, 2010. John was born on
the Island of Crete. As a young man he made his way to London,
England where he met and married the love of his life Gwendoline.
They were happily married for 59 years. They moved to Ravena in
1963. John was always involved in business. He was successful in
whatever he did, but was always restless to try something new.
Those who knew John
saw a man who was hard-working, caring and generous. His family and
community will miss him greatly.
He is survived by
his wife, Gwendoline; son, Jonathan of Ravena; brothers, Anthony
(Alice) of Coxsackie and Ortes and family of London; sister Clota
and family of London; nephews, Steven and family of Voorheesville,
Andrew and family of Durham, NC and Michael of Coxsackie.
Johnís last wish
was to be cremated without fanfare. As such, there will be no
calling hours. Contributions in memory of John may be made to the
charity of your choice.
