Michael McCarthy, age 68, of Saint Louis, Missouri, passed away Thursday Dec. 1, 2016, at his home. He was born April 24, 1948, in Brooklyn, New York, to the late Gerard McCarthy and the late Anne Malloy McCarthy.
Michael was a loving son, brother, husband, uncle, father-in-law, brother-in-law, cousin and friend. Before leaving the workforce, he was also a highly respected businessman, but the greatest of all his accomplishments, the role he took most seriously, was that of being a grandparent. It can be said without reservations by all who knew him that he was the best papa any child could hope for.
He is survived by his wife Joyce Cupp McCarthy, children Jennifer McCarthy Kee, Paul Nelson (Charissa) and Richard Vickers, grandchildren Austin Vickers (Jadya, Sierra), Brittney Kee, Jazmine Johnson, Emma Kee, Reagan Nelson and Jordan Nelson, three sisters Maureen McCarthy, Patricia Andronica (Bruce), Anne Regina Cirenza (Michael), one brother Gerard X. McCarthy (Lisa), many loving nieces and nephews who never failed to bring a smile to his face and joy to his heart, daughter-in-law Lynn Johnson and son-in-law Matt Kee
