John was born in Detroit, Michigan, on January 2, 1954, son of the late John Michael and Bessie (Zoyes) Synod. He was united in marriage to his loving wife, Anna Commisso, on June 12, 1982 at Assumption Greek Orthodox Catholic Church of St Clair Shores. The couple was blessed with two beautiful children of whom he loved and cherished. John was a dedicated employee of Nick Karoutsos Painting Company of St. Clair Shores for many years and after a fall, he retired in 2013. One of his greatest joys was music and loved being the lead singer and guitar player for many bands; especially his family band, the Peacin' Time Family Band. John also enjoyed picking up antiques and restoring his treasures. He was also an avid sports fan. Above all, he was a family man who just loved and adored his grandsons. John was always so vibrant and happy that his smile would light up a room. Although we grieve his passing, we are truly thankful for our bold, confident and outgoing John who has taught us to be more compassionate and loving by the life he led. He will be deeply missed and his light will continue to glow in our hearts forever.
