John “Buddy” Quinones, 57, of Bayonne, formerly of Hoboken, passed away on August 1, 2020.
Born to Elizabeth Galarza and Jose Elias Quinones on January 25, 1963, John was a Hoboken native for many years and was well known in the community. He was a dedicated worker in caring for his family and in his role as a forklift operator for 30 years at the Stahl Soap Company in Hoboken. Always eager to work and build with his hands, John found comfort in working around his home, tinkering, repairing, and building. A kind heart to all, he will be dearly missed by many.
John rejoins his dear son, Jonathan Jay Quinones and his beloved partner, Carmen Rivera, in the care of God’s peace. His memory will be honored by his loving parents, his beloved children, John Jr. Quinones, John Quinones, Jaffet Guenard, Fabian Quinones, Alexandra Guenard, Jessica Guenard, Jaidira Ruiz, Sasha Quinones, as well as his eight cherished grandchildren, siblings, and many friends.
