John Halloran Jr.

Obituary of John J. Halloran Jr.

John Joseph “Jack” Halloran Jr. passed away peacefully on March 9, 2022. Jack was born on May 15, 1929 to John and Ethel Halloran in Dumont, NJ. Jack was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 40 years, Betty (née Scott). Jack was the loving father of Steven (Diane), Susan (Frank) and the adored Papa to grandchildren Jenna (Jimmy), Alissa (Greg), Matthew and Johnathan. He was a dear brother to sisters Eileen and Patricia.

Jack lived life to the fullest and enjoyed every moment. After high school graduation he enlisted in the Coast Guard to proudly serve his country for four years. Jack valued education and  earned his degree in Business from St. John’s University and his masters from NYU. He proudly worked in the real estate management companies of Helmsley Spear and the Empire State building in New York City. After retiring in 1990 Jack and Betty headed to Sunset Beach, North Carolina to enjoy new experiences, friendships and most of all new golf courses! Jack was quite the golfer and even boasted a couple of holes in one. Although Jack considered himself a pretty good golfer he always joked that Betty was the better golfer and he could never beat her. We are certain they are playing a round or two of golf together!

In addition to enjoying the game of golf Jack also loved the game of football. Not only a player in high school but also an avid spectator! He was a loyal New York Giants fan through and through and was a season ticket holder since the 1950’s. 

Jack enjoyed nothing better than being surrounded by family. He loved hearing all that was happening in his children and grandchildren‘s lives.  He was most happy being surrounded by family and friends sharing lots of laughs, family dinners and the occasional cold beer!

Although his family is saddened by his passing they take comfort in knowing he is at peace and watching over everyone with love and pride.

Private arrangements were held under the direction of the Norman Dean Home for Services, Denville. Donations in Jack’s memory may be made to the Hope Center for Autism https://www.hopecenterforautism.org/give-hope
