John Thomas Bongiovanni, 96, passed away peacefully in his home on Tuesday, November 8, 2022. Born and raised in New Jersey, he was the eldest son of Joseph and Giovanna (Braggio) Bongiovanni. John attended high school in New Jersey before serving in the U.S. Navy in World War II. After the Navy, John attended the University of Oklahoma where he met his wife of 70 years, Maudie (Singletary) Bongiovanni.
