OBITUARY:

Jon F. McDonough passed away suddenly at his home, Wednesday January twentieth. The beloved husband of the late Cynthia (Mucci) McDonough, he was fifty five years old.

Born in Woburn he was one of six sons and a daughter born to the late Peter J. and Arlene (Frances) McDonough. Raised and educated in Woburn he was a graduate of Woburn High School, Class of 1979. While in High School Jon was very active in all the happenings there. Having played many sports throughout his lifetime he was always considered a” natural born” athlete.

Following high school Jon went on to work at Energy Science, a technology manufacturing company. There he worked himself up to manufacturing foreman a position he held for a number of years, prior to his retirement.

Jon married the love of his life Cynthia Mucci to whom he was devoted to for the next twenty five years. They moved to Tewksbury in 1999 where he has remained .

Golfing was his all time sport of leisure and fun! On two occasions Jon was the proud golfer of a “hole in one!” On his first hole in one, Jon used the same ball on the next hole, a beautiful swing and then the ball went right into the water!

An avid animal person, Jon took in stray animals. If they were lost, hurt or just in need of something to eat Jon was there to help. Always having dogs of his own throughout his life he had a great compassion for them.

A very bright, kind and gentle man Jon was devoted to his wife for over twenty five years, until her untimely passing several years ago.

  3. My thoughts and prayers to all of Jack’s family. I have so many great memories of Jack from our younger years golfing and more recently taking Jack out to Mavericks with our friend Dave Brown. Lots of fun to be with and a great sense of humor. Rest in peace my friend. You will be missed.

  4. So sorry for all the McDonough family, especially my friend Stephen, it is so hard to lose a brother, the only comfort is to recall some of those great childhood memories that cemented you together. They are never gone as long as you hold them in your heart.

  5. Chris and Brenda Lucarotti.
    We had only known Jack for the past 2.5 years, we moved in 1 house down from him. He attended our house warming party and we would see and talk to him regularly while he was walking his dog and we were walking ours. We are very saddened to learn of his passing and we want to send our prayers and condolences to him and his family. He was a great guy. His daily presence will be missed.
