John Ralph Johnobili

John Ralph Johnobili, 75, passed away April 27, 2024.  Beloved son of the late Julia Johnobili.

John is survived by his loving wife, Sandra (nee Phillips) Johnobili; siblings, Deedee Parrot (Robert), Deborah Thornhill, Richard Blankenship (Deborah), Darlene Tressler, Sharon Bean (Charles), and Gary Blankenship (Judi); And many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

John was a dedicated custodian at Villanova University for 30 years.  He enjoyed anything that involved working with his hands, especially around the house, fixing things.  John also loved working on all kinds of cars and trucks.

John had a special love for Philadelphia history and it seemed everywhere he went he knew someone – whether in the city, around town, or his many trips to Wildwood, NJ.  Most of all he held dear his family and friends.   He will always have a place in the hearts of those who were blessed enough to have known him.

Relatives and friends are invited to John’s Viewing on Sunday, May 5th, from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM at The Donohue Funeral Home, 8401 West Chester Pike, Upper Darby, PA, followed by his Funeral Service at 12:00 PM. Interment private.
