On Eternal Patrol: John Francis Orsi, 73, of Longview Terrace, Pittsfield, died Tuesday, November 6, 2018 at Hillcrest Commons after a courageous battle with Alzheimer's disease while surrounded by his loving wife and children.
A lifelong resident of the Lakewood neighborhood in Pittsfield, he was born on April 25, 1945 to the late Aldo and Eugenia (Angello) Orsi. He attended Pittsfield schools and was a 1963 graduate of Pittsfield High School. He then enlisted in the United States Navy, serving aboard the submarine USS Torsk until his honorable discharge in 1967. An avid sportsman, as a young man John enjoyed hunting, fishing, and camping with his dear friends, Danny Barnini and the late George Rocklin.
John was a member of USSVI Holland Club and a Member at Large.
Sailor, Rest your oar....

He was a SN(SS) :cry:
