John B. McAnerney
September 2, 1942 - September 6, 2023

John B. McAnerney, a man of wit and charm, bid farewell to this world on September 6, 2023, in Carolina Shores, NC, at the age of 81. Born on September 2, 1942, in the Bronx, NY, John lived a life filled with adventure and laughter.

Throughout his career, John served as a Lifetime member of the New Hackensack Fire Department in Wappingers Falls, NY, where he proudly held the title of Past Commissioner. He also lent his expertise as a former member of the Calabash Fire Department. On weekdays, John could be found donning his professional hat as a Commercial Service Representative for Consolidated Edison.

Beyond his professional achievements, John’s true passion lay in being a loving grandfather to his two grandchildren. Nothing brought him greater joy than spending time with Emma Turner and Wyatt Knapp.

John leaves behind cherished memories for his surviving family members, including his daughter, Michelle Turner, his daughter, Karin McAnerney, and his son, Christopher McAnerney. He will forever be remembered as a doting grandfather by his beloved grandchildren, Emma and Wyatt. John is also survived by his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Philip and Dolly Kaiser, and Steven and Carole Kaiser, along with several nieces and nephews.

In the embrace of eternity, John joins his beloved wife, Helen McAnerney, with whom he shared 49 years of marital bliss. He is also reunited with his dear mother and father, who preceded him in death.

The McAnerney family will gather for a private celebration of John’s remarkable life. In lieu of flowers, John would be delighted if people honored his memory by paying it forward. Emulating his passion for scratch-offs, he would love nothing more than for others to share the thrill with strangers. Who knows? The grand prize might be just a ticket away!

As we mourn the loss of John B. McAnerney, let us remember his wit, his laughter, and his unwavering optimism. May his spirit of generosity and perseverance inspire us all to embrace life’s adventures and spread joy to those around us.

Arrangements are in the care of Coastal Cremations Carolina Shores.
