John Lugara, a devoted family man of Sharpsburg, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Saturday, February 11, 2023 at the age of 95. He was born September 25, 1927 to the late Antonio and Carmella Lugara. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Marco Lugara (Helen), sisters Geraldine Cristina (Phillip) and Antoinette Schneider (William), sister-in-law Anna-Marie Scinico (Carmen “Spooks”) and brother-in-law Anthony “Mags” Magnelli. 

John, loving husband of 65 years to Jacqueline (Magnelli) Lugara, devoted father to Camille Hyatt (Larry) and Joanne Hollinger (Don); caring and fun-loving pap to Natalie (Will), JD (Megan), Alex (Dyllan), Nick and Kelly (Jeremy) and great pap to Joseph, Domenico, Meilani, Nora and Demi. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews. 

John was a retired US postal clerk who earned many awards for his dedication and work ethic. He enjoyed gardening, his wife’s home cooked meals and spending time with his family. One of his favorite past times was reminiscing about the old times and his Italian heritage.   Even while ill, he was a great humorist always clowning around with everyone especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren. 

A very special thank you, especially to Dr. Dan Monahan for his thoughtfulness and compassionate care as well as Hospice Family Services.
