John was born on July 31, 1960 in Penn Yan, NY, the son of the late, Walter and Nellie Marusarz Skorusa. He was a 1979 graduate of Dundee Central School. He married his late wife, Tammy Skorusa on July 31st, 1993 in Dundee. He worked for 35 years for NYSE&G, retiring in 2020. John was a hard worker and great father, brother, uncle and friend. You could always count on him to be humorous, smiling, and always ready to have a few cold ones and have a good time. He had many hobbies but enjoyed spending his time the most with his boys. He enjoyed hunting, golfing, bowling, watching NASCAR, and dirt racing. You could count on John cooking up something good on his grill, and watching his Minnesota Vikings play on Sundays!
