Obituary for John Wayne DeSantis

John Wayne DeSantis, age 78, of Williamstown, died on May 1, 2018 due to complications following a recent illness. Born in Paulsboro, Wayne graduated from Woodbury High School in 1958. Wayne worked for A&P in Paulsboro, before starting his 30-year career with Pepsi Cola in Pennsauken.

Wayne was a devoted family man. He and his wife Dianne recently celebrated 51 years of marriage. An extremely dedicated father of two daughters, Wayne was considered a second father to many of his children’s friends and was often the loudest cheerleader at his daughters’ dance competitions. A loving grandfather, he greatly enjoyed attending his grandchildren’s sporting events and dance recitals. Wayne was an avid sports fan and especially loved the Eagles. He was the gracious host for many Super Bowl parties and fantasy football drafts. He enjoyed working in his yard and spending time at his summer home in North Cape May. Wayne was known as a fun-loving, kind-hearted person and was beloved by all who knew him. His good natured, competitive spirit will live on through his children and grandchildren.

Survived by his wife of 51 years Dianne (nee Frank), daughters Stacey DeSantis-Nate (Daniel G. Nate Jr.), Dana DeSantis, grandchildren Mason and Marley Nate, siblings Joan Castaldi, Shirley Kish, Marlene Phillips, Judith Johnson and Barry DeSantis. He was predeceased by his son Scott, parents Anthony and Hazel(nee Milsted) DeSantis, and siblings Betty DiFonzo, Gloria Monahan and Anthony DeSantis.
