John Francis, of West New York, NJ and formerly of Tenafly NJ, beloved son of Edward Doublier and Genevieve Kissel Doublier, brother of Carole Reiss, uncle of Anna Dowling, Jennifer Reiss and Katheryn Reiss-Tolliver, and granduncle of Nicholas Tolliver. John was named in honor of his grandfather, Francis Doublier, the world's first newsreel cameraman. A graduate of Seton Hall, John had a distinguished career as a certified federal court interpreter. Fluent in a dozen languages John was sought out for his ability to cross translate documents in multiple languages. He was a co-founder of Latinum Schola, a website promoting the study of Latin. He interpreted in many high-profile federal cases but valued most the translation services he donated freely to the World Jewish Congress lawsuit representing Holocaust victims against Swiss Banks. Visitation Thursday 2-4 and 7-9 PM at the Barrett Funeral Home 148 Dean Drive Tenafly. Funeral Mass Friday 10 AM Mt. Carmel R.C. Church Tenafly. Interment Mt. Carmel Cemetery Tenafly.

John was my first Spanish Interpreter I hired here at the Bergen County Superior Court.He was one of the most interesting person I ever met. We lost touch when he went to Federal Court. God Bless him he was a great person.
