John Edward McGlinchy Jr.

January 16, 1945May 11, 2019

John E. McGlinchy, Jr., aka “Mr. Wonderful,” 74, passed away Saturday, May 11, 2019, surrounded by loved ones, after a brief, five month, battle with pancreatic cancer.

John was a wonderful father, husband, grandfather and friend. He was employed as the Associate Comptroller at USF for 20 years and his entrepreneurial spirit subsequently led him into other areas including owning Counter Intelligence, LLC, a counter top business, and his used car business, Ocane. He gave many hours of service to the St. Vincent de Paul Society, made friends wherever he went and he would assist anyone he felt needed his help.

John attended Northeastern University and his love for sailing led him from Boston to Tampa, in 1970, where he could sail year round. He was extremely proud of his Irish heritage.

John is survived by his wife of 36 years Barbara (Sparks), children Shawn McGlinchy (Laura), John Thursby (Staci), April McGlinchy-Wall (Doug), grandchildren Heather, Patrick, Reed, Rose, Violet, Mike, Ian and Nicole as well as many dearly loved friends and extended family and his beloved Akita, Bailey.

Missing John so very much and so very thankful for so many memories that I will carry with me forever. From Tom’s let’s get lei’d party to Frank’s daughters wedding to Barbara’s ‘retirement’ to Uncle John visiting me in ICU to the peanut butter bars and on and on and on. Thank y’all for letting me be a part of these years and I’m here waiting to see what I can do. Love you all and will keep all in my prayers. ❤️🙏🏻❤️

Barb and family, Michael and I are so sorry to hear of John’s passing. We certainly will miss seeing John at Carrabba’s and the USF football games. John always had a joke to tell and he made one feel comfortable. We will all miss him. Prayers!
