It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of John Douglas Valentino, 27, on September 19, 2020.

John was born on October 20, 1992 in Dallas, Texas. He graduated from Mount Hebron High School in 2011. In the same year, John earned the rank of Eagle Scout from the Boy Scouts of America.

John had a successful career in the restaurant industry. He was part of the opening staff at Tagliata in Baltimore and was proud to be a part of their team. He was passionate about exceptional food and fine wine.

In 2014, he met his fiancée Meagan Huebner. They shared a home in Baltimore with their beloved dog, Addie.

John was the loving son of Ann Valentino and Doug Valentino; dear brother of Chris and Joe Valentino; and loving uncle to Andrew Mitchell. He is also survived by many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He was a loyal and devoted friend to many.
