Jerome Messana

Jerome R. Messana, 82, of Port Richey, passed away March 16, 2017.  He was born October 26, 1934 in Brooklyn, NY to Raymond and Frances Messana.  He came to Florida in 2004 a few years after retiring from his career as a truck driver. 

Jerry enjoyed watching old classic movies as well as afternoons playing the horses.  In his younger years, he was a tap dancer reminiscent of Ray Bolger of “The Wizard of Oz”.  As he aged, he didn’t dance much in public, but was frequently gliding through the house.  Jerry was Catholic by faith, and attended St. James in New Port Richey, FL.

Jerry is preceded in death by his son, Robert, and his grandson, also named Robert.  He is survived by his loving wife, Johanna; son, Stephen; daughters, Doreen & Denise; brother, Louis; sisters, Theresa & Marescia; step-son, Norman Quigley, Jr; step-daughter, Johanna Quigley; and several grand & great grandchildren. 

Visiting hours for Jerry will be Saturday, March 25, 2017 from 2pm to 3pm at Michels & Lundquist Funeral Home, with a service to follow at 3pm.

    Jerry was the Godfather to my 2nd child Kathleen. He was with me after the death of my first husband and called me when my oldest daughter passed away.
