It’s always love.

John A. Cairo, Jr. passed away on Sunday, March 24, 2024, at his home in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He was 77.  John was born in New Orleans on May 6, 1946. He is survived by his loving wife of 46 years, Carol; his daughter, Jessica Cairo, and son, John Cairo; brothers, Charlie Cairo (Maria) and Jimmy Cairo (Rhonda); and numerous in-laws, nieces, and nephews. He is preceded in death by his father, John August Cairo, Sr. and his mother, Mary Peterson Cairo.

John was a proud veteran and served in the United States Coast Guard from 1963 to 1967.  Afterward, he worked in the oil and gas industry for the remainder of his career.   During that time, he owned and co-authored six U.S. patents.
