Obituary

John Ralph Andreasse, of Brockton, formerly of Hyde Park, passed away on Friday, September 18, 2020 at the VA Boston Healthcare System in West Roxbury. He was 82.

Born in Hyde Park on May 21, 1938, John was the son of the late Giovanni & Catherine (Civitarese) Andreasse. He was raised and educated in Hyde Park and proudly served in the US Army during the Korean War era. John was the owner and operator of A&S Construction in Hyde Park for many years followed by his work at Water Products Inc. in Avon, MA.

Mr. Andreasse is survived by his four children, DonnaMarie Malley of Pembroke, John Andreasse & his wife Colleen of Newmarket, NH, Diane Gangi & her husband Jeffrey of Methuen and Christine Mungovan & her husband Brendan of Bridgewater as well as by the mother of his children, Margaret Andreasse of Hanover, MA. He was the loving grandfather of Austin, Jessica, Morgan, Rob, Nicholas, Joseph, Dominic, Meghan and Elise. John was also the adoring uncle of 7 loving nieces & 1 nephew and the dear brother of the late Ann Palladino and Margaret Smigliani.

During his life, John was extremely involved in his local parish, both in creating the CYO program at Our lady of Lourdes parish in Brockton as well as youth sports in the city as well. His legacy in coaching basketball earned him a string of city championships over several years that he was involved.

Later in life, John continued his community involvement by joining the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8892 in Avon MA, holding several leadership positions throughout his membership, culminating in his induction as a Life Member.

John's passion for community and service to others was only outdone by his love for family. He was never happier than when he was surrounded by those whom he loved and loved him – for that, there was no replacement.
