everyone usaually has two grandfathers so its possible one person was a mortian and one was a plumber.

fyi... in the 8o's during the Slippery when wet / new jersey period, there was an art. in my local nj paper stating that his cousin was a mortician @ the Bongiovi funneral parlor. He asked people stop stopping by, and sending flowers for jon because he toured alot and he didnt see him. It is very possible that one of jon grandfather was that and his cousin followed in his footsteps.

That Makes sense I just remember Jons mother was from Erie PA.... maybe that GF was the plumber and the one in jersey was Jons dads father... either way that would be annoying to anyone.. lol.! thanks

Insurance company has paid, just need to wait for FEMA to finalize and adopt the new flood plans so we know how high we have to build.

Anthony C Bongiovi was the funeral director and he was married to Frances. John Sr.'s mom's name was Elizabeth. It was always my understanding that John sr was going to be a plumber like his dad before Mrs. B (Carol) wanted him to be a hairdresser.

I remember when my neighbor's lower
floor flooded. They got new everything. All new kitchen, flooring, and furniture. At first I was a little envious with all the beautiful updated stuff they got. However, after seeing how long it
takes, and considering how you lose some things you cannot replace, I was glad where I
was at. I also can't imagine daily being surrounded by so much devastation. Eventually though, it will all be new and beautiful.

I hope you aren't like me when it comes
to decision making. It takes me forever to decide
anything! You sound like a trooper. Wishing you the best for the new year!

Not his great grandfather either. The funeral director(Anthony C.) and Jon's grandfather (Louis) were brothers. So the funeral director is Mr. B's uncle. Louis was a plumber. Jon's grandfather Sharkey was an auto mechanic.

His grandfather is a mortician. Maybe there is more than one Anthony in the family and at that parlor.
IMDb biography's are verified by the actors. It's not like Wikipedia where anyone can put in made up information. I also heard him say in an 90s Headbangers Ball interview that his grandfather was a mortician.

imdb is no different then wiki

http://www.imdb.com/help/show_leaf...

Anthony C Sr is the father of Anthony C Jr who owned the power station.

Imdb is also wrong jon's estate is not in Red Bank, it only has a Red Bank mailing address, the estate is in Middletown.

She said to him:'You're not going to be a plumber like your father. Go be a hairdresser this is cool and sexy.' My dad was going to be a plumber like his father. We were working class."

Like I said before not a mortician but a plumber.
