John P. Kendzior

1975 - 2021


Allegany- John P. Kendzior of Allegany, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Wednesday (May 12, 2021), from a diabetes related medical condition.

Born March 16, 1975 in Olean, he was the son of John “Little Soupy” and Linda Hirst Kendzior.

He was a graduate of Olean High School, class of 1994 and from Marymount Manhattan College with a degree in psychology and biology.

His first job was at a non-profit research publishing organization; the director needed someone to get data out to the World, as soon as possible. John knew he could do that and soon after, he combined  data and this new technology that allowed millions to access information right from the comfort of their homes.  His life changed dramatically and he began his life with computers.

John moved from New York City to Las Vegas in 2010. He worked for Eagles Quest in 2011 and currently served as a member of their management team in the position as information technology supervisor. John was a very special person with a family who loved him deeply and many, many friends who loved him as well. He will be missed by everyone.

He is survived by; his dad, “Little Soupy”, his brother Jeffrey M. (Jenna Cargill) Kendzoir of Salem, MA; Judy (Steve) Yorke, whom he considered like his second mother; and his aunts, uncles, and cousins.

John was predeceased by his mom, on October 13, 1999.

Private burial services in St. Bonaventure Cemetery, will be at the convenience of the family.

In honor of John’s love of animals, memorials can be made to the Cattaraugus County SPCA, 2944 Route 16, Olean, NY 14760.
