John C. McCarthy III

John McCarthy - Rochester Cremation

Greece, NY – Passed away January 22, 2023.  John is predeceased by his parents John C & Alice (Flanagan) McCarthy. John is survived by his partner of 45 years, Judy Nittolo; sons: John C McCarthy IV; Jim McCarthy (Sandi) & Michael Gruttadauria; brother, Brian (Patty); sisters: Elaine Sarkis (Ralph) and Karen Flanagan McCarthy (Paul Thibault); 5 grandchildren; friends; extended family and friend of 60+ years, David Mura.

John was the ultimate car guy.  Cars were his job, his hobby, his lifelong interest.  His favorite TV show was “Jay Leno’s Garage.”  His vast knowledge of the automobile, its performance and history would prompt people to say, “Who knows that stuff?” John did.

Friends may call at Rochester Cremation Event Center, 1118 Long Pond Road (South of Maiden Lane) Rochester, NY 14626 on February 9, 2023 from 3p-6p for a Celebration of Life.

    Johnny, you will be missed. Glad Uncle Mac and Aunt Alice were there to greet you along with your Uncle Bob and Aunt Gladys. We didn’t get to see an awful lot of each other, but the memories are fond. May the road rise to meet you and may God always hold you in the hollow of His hand. Love you cuz, Deirdre
