John P. Petrancosta
August 14, 2014, 05:00 AM

John P. Petrancosta, born Sept. 5, 1950, died Aug. 1, 2014.

Petrancosta was born in Redwood City to Gaspar and Josephine Petrancosta. He graduated from San Carlos High School, Class of 1968. His long career as a tax preparer ended abruptly due to health issues. John was a talented pianist and he collected classical music. In his later years, John fulfilled lifelong travel ambitions and toured both Austria and China. But what was most important to John was being home in Redwood City for the weekly game of pinochle with longtime friends Don Curia, Rick Curia, Steve Rusconi, John Hawkins and Mark Chorpening, a tradition that began in high school and continued until the week before his passing. When John fell into ill health, his friends and neighbors gave him tremendous support and assistance for which John’s family is eternally grateful. John is survived by his sister and brother-in-law Ann and Roy Estridge of Visalia, California, and nephew Michael Estridge of Santa Maria, California.

Memorial services for John will be 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 16 at Crippen & Flynn Woodside Chapel, 400 Woodside Road, Redwood City.

Yes, homes are not hotels
No, let the free market be
Maybe a little to make sure people using the service are legit
Not sure
