In Memory of John S. Giunta
A Great Man, and Fellow "Trekie"



John worked dilligently for his clients, his family, his friends,
and the Hicksville Chamber of Commerce,
...just to mention a few of his causes

Rest in Peace, dear friend, and know that the good deeds that you have done, will not be forgotten.

John Giunta was always looking to the stars. He believed and was fascinated by what the future could hold. This Positive outlook on the future is what made him loved by many people... and a trekie; but still a man with his feet firmly planted on the ground. Those who knew him had a respect and admiration that transcended others, because he kept a true balance in his life... and held onto reality.
This poem was written in his honor


 

 
 

TO HAVE YOUR HEAD IN OTHER GALAXIES
YET HAVE YOUR FEET PLANTED FIRMLY ON THE GROUND
TO TAKE YOUR WORK AND BUSINESS VERY SERIOUSLY
BUT TAKE THE TIME TO JOKE AROUND

TO HAVE A HEART THAT TRUELY LOVES THIS EARTH
AND A SOUL THAT WALKS THE STARS
YOU WORKED HARD AT MAKING YOUR WORLD BETTER
...YET, COULDN'T WAIT TIL WE COLONIZED MARS.

THERE AREN'T MANY MEN WHO ARE QUITE LIKE YOU
YOU KNEW LOVE, AND HOPE, AND TRUTH
GROWING WISDOM FROM LIFE'S EXPERIENCE
AND KEEPING THE JOY OF A HAPPY YOUTH

ALWAYS GIVING TO EVERYONE 100 PERCENT
WHEN EVER YOU WERE CALLED UPON
MY KIND, COMPASSIONATE, AND CARING FRIEND
YOU WILL BE MISSED NOW THAT YOU ARE GONE

SO, WHEN EVER I GAZE UP AT THE STARS
AND THE ADVENTURES THEIR FUTURES WILL HOLD
I KNOW THAT YOU WILL BE WAITING THERE
...WITHIN STORIES THAT ARE YET TO BE TOLD

ALTHOUGH YOU'LL BE WALKING THE HEAVENS
WITH ALL OF THE BEAUTY IT IS WORTH
THERE WILL REMAIN A PLACE INSIDE OF OUR HEARTS
FOR YOU, RIGHT HERE ON EARTH
 
 
 

Put in a Good word for us up there, John... Until we get to fly side by side again
