Jonathan Loiacano

February 20, 1955 ~ January 10, 2023 (age 67) 67 Years Old


Jonathan “Jonny” Loiacano of Waukesha, WI, loving husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend joined his heavenly father on January 10, 2023, at the age of sixty-seven.

Jonny was born in 1955 to Beverly McKenzie.  He grew up in Wittenberg, Wisconsin where he learned many life skills.  He attended the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater where he earned his bachelor’s degree in History and worked on his master’s in Psychology.  In January 1989, he met Diane Brookins, the love of his life and they shared 34 loving years.  Together, they raised 3 sons: Jason, Matthew, and Anthony. 

After college, Jonny became a contractor and operated his own painting business.  It is here that Jonny built many lifelong friendships.  Jonny was proud to have shared and taught his knowledge of his skilled trades to others.  Jonny was a member of Blessed Savior Lutheran Church in New Berlin, Wisconsin.  He was also a member of The Eagles Club.  He was a very generous man who spent time fundraising for others.  He most enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and his pets.  He was an avid collector of baseball cards, butterflies, and stamps.

Jonny is preceded in death by his mother Beverly Martin, sister Diana Prince, nephew Jonathan Prince and grandson Dariel Conto.  He is survived by his loving wife, Diane Brookins, his beloved children, Jason (Lindsay) Loiacano, Matthew (Joy) Conto, Anthony Loiacano, his 10 grandchildren: Lily, Owen, Lucas, Jionni, Basilio (Leo), Ian, Nora, Jewel, Anabelle and Declan and his brother Charles Loiacano.  He is also survived by many cousins, special friends, and his pets; Lexie, Jax, Tig Tig and Allie Cat.  He will be missed by all.
