John Whitney Aalborg


John Whitney, 72, of Pinellas Park, Florida, passed away on November 6, 2018, at Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater, Florida. He was born in Brooklyn, New York.

He served his country in the United States Army and when he left the service. John was an Entrepreneur and started his own company selling carpets. He took chances in life to make his dreams come true. He never gave up, even when he became ill. John always believed that you can do anything as long as you don’t give up.

John was a Christian Baptist and would read his bible to his family every night and would always say, “every answer to everything in life could be found in the bible”. He donated to St. Jude and other foundations.

John was a person that was always smiling and always had a positive attitude in hard situations. He treated people with respect and always had a positive attitude, even in hard situations. He showed compassion to everyone, would never talk bad about a person, and was very humble. The simplest things in life made him happy and he loved everyone near and far.

He enjoyed long walks, exploring nature, swimming and bike rides. John loved to read and write, and found joy (shown with a smile) in watching others be happy. He never asked for much, just peace and family.

He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Evelyn Aalborg; and his sons, John Aalborg, Chris Comupis, Albert Voump[is and Costa Coumpis. He is survived by his wife Mary-Ann Aaoborg; daughters, Cynthis Deweese and Michelle Haynes; brothers Erik, Arness and Robin; eight grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; nieces and nephews; and many friends.

Services with Military Honors will be conducted at 1:30PM on Friday, November 23, 2018, at Florida National Cemetery. The cemetery is located at 6508 SW 102nd Ave, Bushnell, Florida 33513.

  • I remember the time John visited me, in the Catskill Mountains of New York. He had just gotten out of the service. We enjoyed target practice and shared some catching up on life’s stories. It was nice seeing my brother. As time went on, we enjoyed visiting John and his family in Cape May New Jersey, and then he moved down to Florida. We had some real nice times there when we went out to the island at Fort De Soto Park, with picnics at the parks, exploring caves up in the country, or just plain sitting around chatting on the beach with the families together. These were good times and he was my brother, it was fun. All the good times will remain, within me, always, for he is my brother, and I will always love him. Erik
