Jack passed away peacefully on November 1, 2015 at the age of 85 with his wife Bobbie by his side, surrounded in his final days by his children, grandchildren and brother Bill. Married in 1961, Bobbie (Barbara Ann née McCarthy) was his faithful partner and the love of his life. Together, Jack and Bobbie raised six children in Ridgewood, NJ where they had an extraordinary circle of close friends. Jack also had 17 grandchildren whom he loved beyond words. Among his children was Dennis McCooe, recently of Chestnut Hill, and now residing in Wynnewood with his wife Theresa (née Donaghue) and their 17 year old son Charlie. Jack and Bobbie loved the “Top of the Hill” and visited often, especially to cheer on Charlie and his Lightning, Grizzlies, and Pirates teammates in Chestnut Hill Youth Sports programs. All who knew Jack will miss his presence, but take solace from having been loved by him so well. Visitation will take place on Thursday, November 5, 2015 from 4-8 PM at Feeney Funeral Home, 232 Franklin Ave., Ridgewood. Family and friends are also invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial on Friday, November 6 at 10:30 AM at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, One Passaic Street in Ridgewood.
