John Charles Nacarato

August 25, 1988 ~ November 9, 2021 (age 33)


John Charles Nacarato, age 33 of Nashville, passed away on Tuesday, November 9, 2021 due to complications related to cancer.  Johnny was a loving and proud father, dedicated and loyal son, kind and true brother, uncle, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend. He loved his two children, Jackson and Riley, fiercely - they were his world and being their father was his greatest joy. 

Johnny really was one of a kind. His smile made you feel so happy and his heart made you feel so loved. He could always make you laugh, often by his antics or just something ridiculous he said. His wit and his charm were endearing and all who loved him knew him to be a goofy, funny guy with a heart of gold.

Johnny was confident and positive, reassuring and courageous. He was persistent and not one to take no for an answer. Adversity pushed him to work harder and his fight with cancer over the past year showed so many what a hero he was. 

Johnny was a grill master and excellent cook who loved cooking for his family and friends. He was generous and always quick to lend a helping hand and do what he could to make things easier for others. Johnny was authentic and always told it like it was leaving little to nothing off limits. 

Johnny is survived by his children, Jackson and Riley; parents, Joe and Beth; siblings, Joey (Stephanie), Tina (Dave), and Michelle (Justin); nephews and nieces, Luke, J.R., Charlotte, George, and Madison; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
