Father Joseph Sheehan passed away peacefully in the early evening of Sept 4, 2017. Fr. Joe was ordained as a Roman Catholic Priest in 1948, and recently celebrated 69 years of Priesthood.

He is predeceased by his brothers, William and Gerard and survived by his sister Rosemarie as well as many nieces and nephews, cousins and family, and will also be remembered by countless whom he ministered to over the course of his Priesthood.

During his life as a Priest, he served at Immaculate Conception in Montclair, NJ, Madonna Parish, Ft. Lee, NJ, St. Agnes Parish, Clark, NJ, Immaculate Heart of Mary in Maplewood, NJ and St. John the Apostle Parish in Linden, NJ. Fr. Joe also served in the US Army as a battlefield Chaplain in the Vietnam War with the rank of Captain administering aid and Last Rites to wounded soldiers.
