Favalora, John and Joycelyn


John George Favalora Sr., age 87, passed away on August 24th,2021 at Kingwood Hospital. Joining her husband, Joycelyn Arena Favalora, age 83, passed away on September 6th, 2021, at San Jacinto Hospital in Baytown; they both lost a courageous battle to covid-19. John was born on July 15th, 1934, in Meraux, Louisiana, and Joycelyn born on April 5th,1938 in New Orleans, Louisiana wed in the year of 1956 where they eventually moved to Gretna, Louisiana to raise their growing family. After thirty-three years of John working for the American Can Company following another ten years working for Jefferson Parish School system, where Joycelyn also put in thirty-five years in as a nutritionist; the two decided to take their retirement to Porter, TX to be closer to family. It is no secret that the love they shared was incomparably unique and blissful; to commit sixty-five years to one another takes two strong, compassionate, understanding, and giving human beings, and that is exactly what these two people were. They always left a mark on anyone they crossed paths with and will be greatly missed. It is with a great misfortune that John and Joycelyn leave behind two sons: John George Favalora Jr. (Lisa Favalora-wife), and Craig Steven Favalora, four grandchildren: Shantel Favalora, Mandi Favalora (Jason Reardon-husband), Ashley Favalora, and Mayraha Favalora, three step grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and five great-great-grandchildren.

  1. Even knowing the circumstances of how these 2 angles got sick, I never feared the death of either one of them. Because I had the opportunity to meet and talk with these angles together and individually. I learned about myself as a man when talking with Mr. Jonny and how to LOVE people when talking with Mrs.Joycelin. These 2 will TRULY be missed from my life!

    Our deepest sympathy to all who loved them. That was everyone that met them. We love and miss them. The Dettwiller’s!

  3. Mr Johnny and Ms Joycelyn have been Mom and Dad to me since I was a teenager. I love them, as if they were my own, and they made me feel loved in return. Together, they are the perfect example of caring, loving parents who want nothing more than love, harmony and success for their children. They were one of the first to hold my daughter when she was born, always supportive of me and my daughter throughout our lives. They will always be two of the biggest influences in my life. I will miss the random calls from Mom, just checking in, and her sweet compassionate encouragement, regardless of the situation. I will miss Dad singing hello to me every time I walked into the room and the warm hug that followed. Whether eating Mexican food with Mom, watching boxing with Dad, or just visiting for a short while, each moment was filled with love. You were both stolen away from us too fast. My heart is broken. I miss you so much, and will always be thankful that the memories created over the last 50+ years will carry me, until we meet again. Craig and Johnny, you know my heart. I love you both. Mom and Dad, I will love you always.

  4. Uncle Johnny and aunt Joycelyn you will be missed do much. I will never forget how welcoming you were to all of us for hurricane Katrina and always. Will always remember coming to your house on the westbank as a kid and after. Love you both to the moon and back.
