"I loved ChaCha. I will never forget New Years Eve on Mulberry Street many years ago when he lit off a bunch of fireworks and "beat" Chinatown with the better show. Joey DePinto was there. Great memories. There was a picture of me on the wall back in the day."
"John Ciarcia enjoyed a successful career and own a business doing what he loved--socializing with friends. Few people can claim such an extraordinary feat. My condolences to his family during this time of deep sorry. My desire is that you find comfort in knowing that John Ciarcia was highly valued as an actor and man, and he is indeed very precious in God's eyes."
"I would like to offer my deepest condolences for your loss. I knew John for almost 65 years, we both attended PS 130 and Haaren High School together. Some of the things that he, and I did in those two schools would get your butt out on the street today. Then we both reported to the Draft Board on the same day, to this day I still laugh when I think of some of the things he did on that day."
