John faithfully served his country in the US Navy at the end of WWII. He then began a career with IBM and retired as an engineer. He also was an AARP tax aide preparer. John was loved by so many of his family and friends with a good story to tell every time he was around. John loved to socialize, dance and follow the Little German Band out of Raleigh N.C. He loved to travel to his favorite place – Italy – where he and Kay were so fortunate to visit numerous times. His dry wit was the life of the party and his silly jokes were priceless. John was a wonderful soul.
He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Kay Strum Provetero of the home; son, John V. Provetero of Garner; daughter, Elizabeth Ann Johnson of CO; stepson, Gregory Long of Midway Park; two grandchildren; and sister, Josephine Jean Hand of NJ.
