Obituary for John J. Engstrom

On Friday, January 4th, 2019 John James Engstrom, of Middletown NJ passed away after battling for eleven and a half years following a tragic accident. Johnny is survived by his mother, Heather Morsette, his father, Ryan Engstrom, his brother Logan Daniel and his sister Hazel Jean, his paternal grandparents John and Peggy Engstrom, his uncle Shawn Connelly, and many other aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and fans. He was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Leniellen Morsette, Juan Berrios, and Martin Morsette, as well as his aunt, Randi Jean Engstrom, and several other of our angels waiting to receive him.
Johnny was born ten days late, on August 18, 2004, in Long Branch, NJ, in the middle of a sun shower. He had the brightest blue eyes, the most beautiful blonde curls, and the biggest, most infectious smile you've ever seen. Johnny was a rock star from the moment he could talk. He was adored by everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him, to know him was to love him. From the minute he arrived here he was pure sunshine. Johnny will be remembered, loved, and missed by many.
A memorial service will be held at Jacqueline M. Ryan Home for Funerals 233 Carr Ave. Keansburg, NJ on Friday evening, January 11th, from 7 to 9pm. On Saturday at 11am there will be a service at Calvary United Methodist Church in Keyport. In lieu of flowers please send donations to his mother directly or through the Go Johnny Go gofundme set up by a family member.
