A Celebration of Life for John Emmet, who died Dec. 23, will be held on Thursday, Jan. 25 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the main hall of Building B at The Pride Center at Equality Park, 2040 N. Dixie Hwy., Wilton Manors.
Emmet worked as Stork’s general manager and was called the “driving force behind” its catering department and had an extensive background in restaurants in New York City before coming to South Florida in 2011.
Greg Giancola called Emmet a “happy, loving, and kind” person, who “shared his love for physical fitness” and was a hard worker who made Stork’s his “pride and joy.”
Giancola and Emmet were friends for the past 10 years. “He was phenomenal. He had such a huge heart. He was just a very good friend, very supportive. He was always there for me . . . there for anyone. He will be very missed.”
