Obituary:

John J. Petruff, 92, Bradenton, formerly of Miami, died on May 3, 2014 in Bradenton, FL.

Johnny was born 11/14/21 in Paterson, NJ to Anna and Stephen J. Petruff. He served as a Technician 5th grade in the US Army during World War II and was stationed in Australia. After the war he met his loving wife Laurene (d. 12/26/04). They married in 1948 and moved to Miami, FL in 1949. Johnny is survived by his three children and their families, John Petruff of Suffolk VA, Patricia A. Petruff of Bradenton, FL and Laurie Delimon of San Jose, CA. He also leaves behind several nephews and nieces.

Always a tinkerer, Johnny worked for Westinghouse as an X-ray technician. In the 1960’s he opened his own electronics repair business in Miami. Petruff Electronics grew from TV/radio repair, to include installation of master antennas, satellite dishes, cable TV, security cameras, alarm systems and controlled access systems at many private homes, hotels and condominium complexes all over the Miami area.

Johnny was a pilot and over the years he owned a number of small planes as well as a sign towing business. Johnny was a member of the Civil Air Patrol and was an active member of North Miami Elks Lodge # 1835.

Johnny loved music and was self taught on the electric keyboard. He was an avid dancer and enjoyed treating all the ladies to a turn on the dance floor. The family would like to extend their love and appreciation to Mary E. Schulte of Coral Gables, who has been Johnny’s friend, companion and dancing partner since 2005.
