John T. Bacigalupo passed peacefully in his home in Osage Beach on Sunday June 10, 2018. He was born in St. Louis on August 9, 1938 to Joseph and Mary (Roddy) Bacigalupo.

John served his country in Alaska in the Army and graduated from the University of Missouri.

He is survived by his wife and best friend of 38 years Katherine, his sister Mary Joy (Neil) Sellenriek and brother Michael Bacigalupo of St. Louis, step-daughter Jennifer Allen of Michigan, grandaughter Jessie (Edward) Coleman of Florida and their children Matthew John and Jeffery Willian, his niece Sally Sellenriek and nephews Brad (Anne) and Drew (Sheila) Sellenriek and their children. John is preceded in death by his parents, brother, and sister-in-law Josepg and Anne Bacigalupo and his much loved puppies Billy, Charley, Suzie, Buddy and Lucy.

After many years with Teamsters Local 688, John retired in 2000 to build his dream home on the shores of Lake Ozark in Osage Beach. John and Kate loved to share their beautiful views with family and friends. He could often be heard shouting “I’m the luckiest man on Earth” as he drove his boat full throttle with Alabama blasting “Play Me Some Mountain Music” on the stereo. John loved life.

His sense of humor and kind caring soul touched so man. He will greatly be missed. Services: Saturday June 23, Our Lady of the Lake Church, 2411 Bagnell Dam Blvd., Lake Ozark, MO. Visitation at 11:00 a.m. with Memorial Mass to follow at 12:00 p.m.

John’s passion was not killing any living thing. In lieu of flowers, please consider a gift to Dogwood No Kill Animal Shelter, 1075 Runabout Dr., Osage Beach MO 65065.
