John DeStefano, beloved husband and father, passed away on May 6, 2020 at the age of 48 as a
result of metastatic cancer. Words are inadequate to capture the magnitude of the loss his family
feels. John was a wonderful husband and best friend to his wife, Natalie (Haye). John was also a
nurturing and joyful father to his children, Gabriella, Isabella, and Alexander, whom he loved
more than anything. Throughout his life, John was many things. He was a member of the
congregation at Bethlehem Lutheran Church. He was also an excellent athlete at Brick Township
High School and a scholar athlete at Montclair State College, where he played football while
earning a Bachelor of Science degree. John was a career educator, having served as a computer
teacher and Technology Coordinator at Mantua Township Public Schools and the Technology
Coordinator at Clearview Regional High School District. John earned his Master of Arts degree
at Seton Hall University and served as a Supervisor at Atlantic City High School, an adjunct
professor at Rowan University, the Principal of Atlantic City High School, and the
Superintendent of Schools of the Buena Regional School District. John was also a fun-loving
uncle to Justin, Katelin, and Lauren Haye, whom he adored. Ultimately, John was a devoted and
loving man who always put his family first. John was dearly loved and will be truly missed by
his mother in law, Donna Haye, father in law, Frederick Haye, brother in law, Derek Haye, sister
in law, Amy Haye, aunt Maria Franceschetti, and uncle Michael Franceschetti. A memorial
service will be held at a later date.

To Natalie and the DeStefano Family,

Please accept my deepest and most heartfelt sympathy for the passing of Mr. DeStefano. Mr. John Destefano was the most kindhearted, positively motivated gentlman (and Boss) I've know at Buena. He deserved more than he received and I respected him greatly. I pray our Heavenly Father sends you all comfort through this time.
