John J. McGlade III
McGlade, John J. III passed peacefully on October 12, 2020 surrounded by his wife and his girls, whom he loved and cherished dearly. Beloved husband of Susan (nee Leone), loving father of Alicia and Anna McGlade, and adoring son of Rose (nee Beckett) and the late John J. McGlade Jr. He will be missed dearly by his brothers and sisters, Joseph, Patrick, Rose, Kevin, Eileen, Anne, James, his nieces and nephews, extended family, and countless friends whom he all held closest to his heart. Family and friends meant the world to John and he was truly blessed and thankful for them all.
John worked for ACME markets for 46 years with an unmatched work ethic and was a member of the American Legion Riders Post #308. John was also known for his love of soccer which he played and coached with his whole heart. His passion as an athlete was equally matched by his daughters and he was their #1 fan. John lit up every room and always knew how to make people laugh. John’s pride and love of his Irish heritage ran deep and shone bright in the Irish songs he sang and traditions he shared.
John’s strength was an inspiration during his courageous battle with cancer. His legacy will live on forever through the jokes he left behind, the lessons he instilled in his family, and the positive impact he made on every heart he touched. Our family wishes to thank Penn Medicine Hospice and we are grateful for the care and compassion shown to our family by all the nurses and doctors that cared for John along the way.
Due to the current circumstances, John’s services will be private. You are able to attend the Mass of Christian Burial via Zoom, on Saturday 10/24 at 10:30am.
