John Patrick McCarthy, beloved brother and uncle, passed away on January 25, 2021, after an 18-year journey with cancer. John was born on December 8, 1946 in Wyandotte, Michigan, but lived most of his life in Montclair, New Jersey. He was preceded in death by his parents, George and Alice McCarthy, and his sisters Ann McCarthy, Mary Matrale, Dorothy McCarthy and Marion McCarthy. He is survived by his sisters Catherine Roth (William), Elizabeth Dmytriw (Kevin), his brother Joseph McCarthy (Suzanne), and many nieces and nephews. John was a graduate of the first work study class at Montclair High School. He was employed by the Archdiocese of Newark as a laborer at Immaculate Conception Cemetery in Upper Montclair for 37 years. As a member of The Knights of Columbus and the Ancient Order of Hibernians, John enjoyed travel and marching in the annual 4th of July parade in Montclair. John had an extensive knowledge of rock and roll, and had a huge collection of 45rpm records from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. He would often use these to work as a DJ at parties. He lived the life he was given to its fullest and never complained about any of it. We shall miss him.
