John Baskowski, 58, of Coventry, CT passed away peacefully at Gaylord Hospital on January 9, 2020 surrounded by his loved ones. He was born on November 7, 1961 to Anthony and Sophie (Hopowiec) Baskowski. He battled a brain tumor for many years. he recuperated wonderfully and was back to work a few months later. He decided to put a large part of his heart and soul into the Brain Tumor Alliance, INC. Before going in for his final surgery he made it a point to make an “Angel” donation before he became one. He worked as the CFO at EastConn for many years. he had a passion for cooking and grilling, so much infact that he would grill in the snow. One of his favorite events was being a part of the chili contest and in honor of him his family will continue the tradition of having an annual chili contest in his memory. He had a zest for life and loved adventures. He planned outings and events for him and his wife months ahead of time. They loved to go to Cape Cod on his Harley, concerts, shows and festivals. He absolutely loved giving gifts and surprising the people in his life. He was one of the most thoughtful and generous people. He loved animals and especially adored his dog, Sasha. Besides his parents, he is survived by his wife of many years, Denise., his children Cheyenne, Johnny Jr., and Samantha Manno, his brother Stephen and his wife Pamela, many nieces, nephews and friends. Relatives and friends may join the family on Friday, January 17, 2020 between 4pm-7pm at the Coventry-Pietras Funeral Home, 2665 Boston Turnpike, Coventry. Burial will be private at the convenience of the family. John would love nothing more than to know the alliance is still receiving the care and support he once gave so instead of flowers please make a donation in John’s name to the Brain Tumor Alliance, Inc., P.O Box, 370514, West Hartford, Ct 06137, Attn: Chris or For online condolences please visit

Seeing John And Denise at our CTBTA events always brightened my day. He always gave the best hugs and had a warm smile on his face. Despite the challenges of a brain tumor diagnosis - he faced his with strength and dignity. My heart is saddened by his passing and I will be praying for Denise and his entire family. Thanks to John we had delicious chili at our annual CTBTA Path of Hope walks - we are forever grateful for his generosity and hospitality that he gave to our patients and caregivers. Sending love and prayers.

Very sorry to hear of John's passing. We often enjoyed conversations about his love for the blues, and recent show that he attended around the state. Wishing peace for the entire family...
