After graduating from Most Holy Rosary High School and Fairfield University, John went on to work with his father at the Honold Insurance Agency in Syracuse. For the decades that followed, John enjoyed his long career as a Resource Analyst with the Onondaga County Department of Social Services, where he served the community’s neediest until his retirement. When not working, John took great pride in his service to the City and County Republican Parties, where he lead community organizing and campaign efforts. A devout Roman Catholic not only in worship, but also in his words and deeds. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus. John's faith and parish community at St. Ann's Church served as both his guiding light and his extended family. John is survived by his two younger brothers: Dr. David J. Honold and G. Bryan Honold; and by the true and complete love of his life, Barbara King Honold. Together with Barbara, John welcomed and loved his five step-children, eleven step-grandchildren, five step-great-grandchildren and many nieces & nephews - all of whom cared lovingly for him.
