Joseph J. “Chuck” McCarthy, age 90, passed away on September 24, 2021.  Joe was raised at The Mission of the Immaculate Virgin at Mount Loretto, Staten Island, NY.  He worked at Automatic Switch Company in Florham Park, NJ for 37 years before retiring in 1997.  He lived in Brick, NJ for 41 years before moving to Palm Coast, FL.

Joe was a founding member of the Church of Epiphany, Brick, NJ and a founding member of the Knights of Columbus Council 8160 where he was a Past Grand Knight.  He was also a 4th Degree member of Msgr. John F. Baldwin Assembly of the Knights of Columbus where he was a Past Faithful Navigator.
