American Veteran 04

John F. "Jack" Carney

October 20, 1948 ~ September 10, 2020 (age 71)


John F. “Jack” Carney, age 72, of West Haven passed away peacefully on September 10, 2020, with his family by his side. He was the loving husband of Donna Dunabeitia Carney.  Born in New Haven, he was the son of the late Stephen and Dorothy Williams Carney.  In addition to his wife, John is survived by his children Shannon (Michael) Geato of NC, John (Melisa) Carney and Roberta (Scott) Looney of Hamden, Donna Brockett of PA and Heather Pullen of West Haven.  John is also survived by his siblings Judy Carney and Stephen Carney, both West Haven. John aka “Fluffy” leaves behind his ten beloved grandchildren, Bug, #1, Ry Guy, Raymondo, Chance Man, Chewy, TB, SMB, Itchy Brother and Adrianna (eww,eww,eww), nieces and nephews and his #1 neph.  John was predeceased by his daughter Maria Bouldin.


Prior to retirement, John was a member of Union local 455.  He proudly served in the USMC Reserves.  An active donor to the American Red Cross throughout his lifetime, John donated twenty-one gallons of blood.  He was extremely proud of his Irish heritage. 


John’s favorite sports team was the Yankees. He loved to read and work on crossword puzzles. You could always find John down by the ocean fishing or digging worms. He was known to everyone as “the fisherman”. He will always be remembered for his soft spoken ways, his love for his family, especially his own grandchildren and his love for humanity. His one regret in life would be that he would not be able to vote again for President Trump.


To John from Donna: you are my very best friend and I will miss you and your corny jokes beyond words. I was blessed the day God put you in my life. RIP my beloved. Until we meet again…John 3:16.


In accordance with his wishes, there are no services.
