He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather who, after being predeceased by his loving wife of 54 years (Carol 6/5/1944 – 12/13/2016), spent most of his time enjoying his family and friends. When he wasn’t with them, he would sip on a cocktail while following up through text or Facebook. Most of all, he loved talking to people, especially his grandkids. He was never afraid to talk about politics or religion, but he’d rather talk about his work or sports, especially the NY Giants.
He is survived by his children and their spouses, Dr. John and Eileen McGrath, Michael and Debbie McGrath, Colleen and Carmine DeCorso, and Keith and Kimberlie McGrath; and his 10 grandchildren, Marissa and Chris North, Casey and Meaghan DeCorso, Alexa, Rachel and Hailey McGrath, Jesse, Kevin and Alison McGrath, and Ava McGrath.
