He will be deeply missed by his beloved wife of 37 years, Karen, who stood by his side through thick and thin. They shared a love that was steadfast and enduring. John will also be remembered fondly by his children: Marc and his wife Echo Dineen, Shawn Dineen, Sandy and her husband Dave Arcieri. He was a pillar of support and guidance to them throughout their lives.
John also leaves behind his sister Linda and her husband Charles McCormick, his brothers James Dineen, Mike and his wife Helen Dineen, Bill Dineen, and Robert and his wife Debbie Dineen. Together, they shared countless memories and formed an unbreakable bond of love and camaraderie.
John’s legacy continues through his four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren who brought him immeasurable joy and pride. He cherished each moment spent with them, always encouraging and supporting their dreams.
Services to celebrate John’s life will be held at a later date in New York, where family and friends will gather to honor his memory and find solace in each other’s presence.
John J. Dineen will forever be remembered as a devoted family man, a skilled carpenter, and an individual who found solace in nature. His kindness, wisdom, and warm presence will be greatly missed by everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. May he rest in eternal peace.
