John was born November 9, 1987 in Ottawa to John M. Poggi and Cathy Aussem. He was a skilled tradesman and a member of St. Patrick's Church. John was an avid outdoorsman, and simply loved being outside; whether it was fishing, hiking, sitting on his tailgate, throwing a ball with the dog, or playing with his kids. There was never a little old lady he wasn't helping, or a neighborhood kid whose bike he wasn't fixing. John was a family man, and loved spending time with his children.
He is survived by his parents, John (Judi Heath) Poggi and Cathy (Dennis) Kennedy; the love of his life, Natalie Weygand; their three children, John William, Michael Logan, and Grace Elizabeth; four brothers, Luke and Sean Kennedy, Justin (Kayla) Heath, and Danny Heath; two sisters, Caitibeth (Justin) Poggi-Keylard and Rebecca (Matt) Hatley; his grandparents Robert and Joan Poggi; his grandmother, Lorraine Kennedy; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Caroline Poggi; grandparents, Charles and Donna Aussem; and his uncle, Michael Aussem.
Pallbearers will be Luke Kennedy, Justin Keylard, Justin Heath, Danny Heath, Josiah Stebbins, Timothy Aussem, and Sean Kennedy.
