John Strba

John was born on November 6, 1947 in Stamford to John & Grace (Dypa) Strba.  He is survived by his caring & loving wife Judy Lapolla of 52 years that was always by his side and son Gregg who John loved being with & helping his son at Gregg’s Garden Center.  He served in the U.S. Army, worked for the Town Of New Canaan in the 1970’s and 80’s, loved Oldies music, racing, vintage cars, New York Yankees & the Beach.  Always ready to help someone, he had a heart of gold & would give you the shirt off his back.  John was always so proud to talk about Santa’s Spectacular arrival by helicopter that he started & organized many years ago.  He loved watching the excitement on the children & adults, but most of all he was a kid at heart!  It was his faith that allowed him to live life.
