John E. Mendes, 82 of Warren, RI passed away peacefully on November 11, 2022. Born in Fall River, Massachusetts, John was the youngest son of the late Manuel and Adeline (Pacheco) Mendes.

He also leaves 2 granddaughters, his pride and joys, Madison and Lillian and several nieces and nephews whom he was a proud Uncle Johnny to.
