John T. Toohey Obituary
John T Toohey

AGE: 86 • Redbank

John T. Toohey died Friday, December 9, 2016. He was predeceased by his parents, Florence and John P. Toohey; a sister and brother-in-law, Mildred and Chris Bradley; and a son-in-law, Vincent DiFazio. John was born in Brooklyn, NY and graduated from Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School and Fordham University. He and his family moved from Staten Island to Lincroft, New Jersey in 1972. He worked in the insurance industry all his life and retired from AIG in 1994. After retirement, he and his wife vacationed in South Carolina for ten years. They settled in Shady

Oaks in Red Bank, NJ in 2003.

He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Helen, and his five children: John (and wife Connie) Toohey of Lusby MD, Patricia DiFazio (and Gus Wadsworth) of Center Valley PA, Daniel (and wife Laurie) Toohey of Lincroft NJ, Lisa Toohey of Fair Haven NJ, and Kelley Toohey Maul of Oceanport NJ. He is also survived by his brother Gerard, sister-in-law Marie, and many nieces and nephews. The delights of his life were his ten grandchildren: Joseph (and wife Toni), Liane, John, Gina, Dana, Lauren, Jack, Leah, Jake, and Scott.

A heartwarming thanks to his special partners Arlene Lospinoso and Bill Pollack and all of the kind and caring players at the Tinton Woods Bridge Club. He so enjoyed playing with you all (especially when he came in first). An extra special thanks and love to Dr. Stephen Swartz for treating John with respect, compassion, and kindness, and for his friendship for so many years. The family will be forever grateful. John's favorite phrase was "let's get Dr. Steve's opinion."

Visitation will be Tuesday, December 13th from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. at the Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad St, Red Bank. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, December 14th at 9:15 a.m. at St. Catharine's Church, 108 Middletown Rd, Holmdel. Interment will follow at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Middletown.
