John “Jack” Joseph Cleary

March 5, 1934 - August 3, 2021

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the death of John Joseph Cleary. John, known as Jack to family and friends, was born in NYC and raised in the South Bronx. He graduated from Rice High School in 1951. John worked at Equitable Life Assurance for 38 years retiring in 1989 as a Personnel Manager. John then worked in sales for various office furniture manufacturers and dealerships until 2006.

John was married for 46 wonderful years to his wife Madeline (née Nugent) who predeceased him in 2005. John and Madeline lived first in Manhattan, moving to Old Bridge, NJ in 1966 and later to Middletown, Toms River, and finally to Renaissance in Manchester, NJ.

John was an avid reader, enjoyed photography, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. He was a devout catholic. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus, and a die-hard NY Yankees and NY Giants fan. He was known for his Sunday breakfasts with perfectly cooked fried eggs, his delicious rice pudding, his sweet tooth, his Irish gift of gab, his funny sneezing fits, his smile, his blue eyes, and his devotion to his family.

John was the son of John and Delia (née Galvin) Cleary both from County Clare, Ireland. John is survived by his sister Kathleen Doran of Long Island, NY; his brother Robert Cleary of Bronx, NY; his son John and his children Amanda and Alex of NJ; and his daughter Bridget Boldrin and her husband Bob and their children Brianne, Tara, and Sean of NC. He will be greatly missed and his legacy will live on.

A viewing will be held on Saturday, August 7, 2021 from 1 to 4 PM at Anderson & Campbell Funeral Home at 3010 Ridgeway Road in Manchester, NJ. There will be a private burial on Monday. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Jack's memory to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital (stjude.org)

More great memories from Jacks birthday and Halloween

Jack was always larger then life literallly. He loved life and enjoyed it to the end. He did a lot of crazy dumb things but I still loved him for it. Remembering all the card games we would play with friends, the dances and dinners and vacations spent together. He made me join the wine club, even though I do not drink so he can get an extra cup of wine. The costumes at Hallowen and just the good and bad memories.
Forever in my heart Jack
Bernice

John & Family,
Beth and I send our deepest condolences on the loss of your dad. He was a big man who also had a big presence when he walked in the room. I will always remember his kind greetings whenever he came to HQ's or the Council Room to share in your accomplishments. May God hold your dad in the palm of his hand, until you meet again!
