He was predeceased by his parents John J. and Margaret (Greene) McCarthy. He was a quiet man who shined brightly to the people who knew him. We will miss his dry wit and his presence in our lives. He was truly a wonderful man. He graduated from Holy Cross College in 1952 and later attended Clark University in Worcester, Mass. He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. He married Theresa (D’Elia) McCarthy on April 12, 1958, and they have shared 45 years of love and companionship.

He is survived by his sisters, Jacqueline Aspesi of Southboro, Mass. and Ruth McCarthy of Worcester, Mass. and he will be fondly remembered by many other relatives. He was a member of St. John’s Catholic Church in Bangor. He had a deep faith in God and witnessing his faith has been an inspiration and gift to all of us. He spent 42 years in the trucking industry in Massachusetts, Ohio and Maine. He served as a manager at Roadway Express and later at Coles Express. He retired from Coles in 1994. He loved sports, especially hockey and he coached Youth Hockey in the 1980’s. He loved to watch his sons play hockey and spent many weekends at the Ice Arena rooting them on with his cheer of “Hustle! Hustle!” He will be truly missed.
