John Enright Cherished husband, father, and brother was an MTA retiree Longtime Staten Island resident John Enright passed away on Jan. 22, 2020, at Richmond University Medical Center, surrounded by his wife of 47 years, Denise (née Connors) and his daughters, Jane and Jill. John worked for thirty years as a bus driver for the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) before retiring in 2005. He also served his country in the US Army and Army National Guard, retiring as a Staff Sergeant in 2003. Notably, John was activated with his NYARNG unit and responded to the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. He was an avid reader who especially enjoyed sci-fi books and he often wore his favorite T-shirt that read, Trust Me I'm A Jedi. John had a quick wit and keen sense of humor that was enjoyed by many. Much to the relief of his family, he was often known to fix things with everyday items such as rubber bands or duct tape, earning the nickname MacGyver. He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Elizabeth, and sisters, Patricia and Elizabeth; he has one surviving sister Jacqueline. He has a large extended family and he will be missed by all, especially by his wife and daughters. In lieu of flowers, please donate to The Wounded Warrior Project or the Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation on John's behalf.

Our Father, which art in heaven,Hallowed be thy Name.Thy Kingdom come.Thy will be done in earth,As it is in heaven.Give us this day our daily bread.And forgive us our trespasses,As we forgive them that trespass against us.And lead us not into temptation,But deliver us from evil.For thine is the kingdom,The power, and the glory,For ever and ever.Amen.

I had the distinct honor and pleasure to call John "my friend". I knew John for over 20 years through our jobs as NYCT bus drivers and as members of the NYNG - 101st Cavalry here on Staten Island. As you can well imagine, we shared many good and not - so - good times in both positions, but John always was upbeat and able to make the best of any situation. He always gave 110% to see that the job was done.

John was always friendly, outgoing and had that unique ability to make people smile. A "jokester" at times, but that was John and there was no changing that.

I want to express my deepest, most heart felt condolences to his wife and children.

Rest in Peace and Godspeed on your journey. We'll meet again at Fiddlers Green!

John was one of my best buddies. He always brightened up a room with his witty sense of humor. Everyone that had the pleasure of knowing John was always happy to engage in a conversation with him . He was a friend who you could count on. He always had a good sense of realism when things were not going too well. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. I know his buddies that shared a lunch outing with him will miss his Army stories that we all enjoyed.
We all would agree that we do it all again in a heart beat . Those camp days were some of our best memories and I’m glad to have been with a true friend like John . You will be missed brother .
Your best bud Joe Azzaretto
