Johnny - Karen’s big brother. Always around, whether we wanted him to be or not. Looking back, now I know he was the protector, the enforcer if needed. Always making me laugh or roll my eyes. You will be missed greatly, Johnny. Godspeed.

I had the pleasure of working with John these past 3 years at Powell. John is one of the sweetest, kindest, thoughtful guys I will ever know. He always had a smile in his voice and was willing to help with anything. Michele and Caroline, he loved you more than anything in this world and his face would light up when he spoke about you. My heart goes out to you and all of your family, and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. John will be missed so much.

Soooo many happy memories of patio parties, both in Roselle and Crystal Lake, and later in Genoa City. John always had that ____ eating grin on his face, always with a joke or funny story to tell. He will be dearly missed by all.

I am so sorry to hear this news. I count myself very lucky to have known John Carbonara. I got to know John and Michele while working at Follet Software Company. John was one of the first fellow salespeople I met, he helped train me. I spent the day in southern Wisconsin with him so he could show me the ropes. He was always there to help, he made me feel welcome, he was always so kind. He also had a great sense of humor and we spent many sales meetings laughing HARD. The last time I saw John was when I met Michele and him for lunch at Daddy Maxwells. We picked up where we left off, as if time hadn't passed. We had plenty of giggles. Michele, Caroline and the rest of the extended family, I am so sorry for your loss. You have my deepest condolences. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Sending love.
Justin McCarthy left a message on March 4, 2022:
I met John in 2014 after he did a half marathon in Disney. He was one of the nicest people I had ever met. We met up a few times in Disney and most recently, we spent time with John, Michelle, and Caroline in February down in Disney. I am so deeply humbled that I met such a kind and loving person. You will be so missed.

Johnny...you will be so missed. You've been such a big part of our family for so long...there are so many memories of the times we all spent together that it's hard to choose only a few. You always were so happy...and made everyone around you happy. You made me laugh and cry with your antics...but always knew when you needed to be serious. Everyone knows of how much you loved Michele and Caroline..we will always be there for them. Rest in peace. John. I wish we had more time together...but my memories of you will always be in my heart.

Deb Wright left a message on March 4, 2022:
My heart is heavy with this unexpected and untimely loss. John was such a presence that his absence is difficult to comprehend. One of the kindest, sweetest and smartest souls I’ve ever had the good fortune to know and when he and Michele married they so obviously belonged together we shared in their happiness and celebration. Michele and Caroline and your entire family, I am so sorry for your loss.
