We regret to announce the passing of our former Brother John R. "Jack" McCarthy who passed away suddenly on April 24th.
"Jack worked as a technician for Verizon Communications for nearly two decades. He was a passionate sports fan, an avid reader, a brilliant wit, and a fierce Jeopardy contender. Those that knew Jack would describe him as a kind and gentle soul and a dedicated and loyal friend. His most important role, however, was that of a devoted and caring father to his son, Jake, and daughter, Janie, who were an unending source of pride for him. He enthusiastically cheered them on in all of their endeavors, and they adored him. We all take comfort knowing that Jack is now happily reuniting with family and friends engaged in spirited conversation, telling tales, and laughing heartily."
Relatives and friends are invited to attend calling hours at George L. Doherty Funeral Home, 855 Broadway in Somerville, on Monday, May 6th from 4:00PM – 8:00PM. Funeral services and interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Jake & Janie McCarthy Educational Fund c/o Thomas J. McCarthy, Esq., 741 Broadway, Somerville, MA 02144.
