Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., he was a son of the late Pasquale and Helen Golden DiGiovanna. He had been a Morrisville resident for the past 36 years.
Jack was a faithful member of St. John the Evangelist Parish, where he found his amazing spiritual strength, which had served as an example to all.
He was a structural engineer with Pennoni Associates, Inc.
Jack enjoyed NASCAR and camping. He was a great organizer and helped keep his many friendships together. He cherished trips together with friends and family and actively contributed to many charities. He loved the bridges he worked on and looked forward to banding the Peregrine falcon chicks every year.
Jack is survived by his loving wife and best friend, Terry; his daughter, Christina M. Blaney of Middlesex, N.J.; two sons and a daughter-in-law, Jack DiGiovanna and Maria Laura Blefari of Lausanne, Switzerland, and Joseph DiGiovanna of Weehawken, N.J.; two brothers, Jerry DiGiovanna of Sayville, N.Y. and Jim DiGiovanna of Medford, N.Y.; two sisters, Pat Dyckes of Pipersville, Pa. and Joan DiGiovanna of Rio Rancho, N.M.; two grandchildren, Danielle Blaney and Shannon Blaney; and a great grandson, Tyler Blaney. His grandchildren and great grandson were the light of his life.
His loving family extends to cousins, nieces, nephews, and so many wonderful friends that it would be impossible to count. He was ‘Uncle Jack’ to many. If you knew him, you loved him.
