John Francis Maguire
1968 - 2020

Oakville, CT John Francis Maguire, 52, died peacefully on November 14, 2020 at St. Mary’s Hospital.

John was born on October 2, 1968 in Waterbury, CT a son of William Maguire and the late Anne Marie (Toole) Maguire and had lived most of his life in Naugatuck. John graduated from Naugatuck High School, Class of 1986 and worked for many years as a union electrician.

Like a true Irishman, John had a story or a joke for every occasion with an infectious laugh that would light up a room. He was an avid fan of the Yankees and Giants. He also loved to travel and dance. John always lived his life to the fullest. He will be truly missed by all.

The family would like to thank the entire medical team at St. Mary’s Hospital for their love, care and support of our beloved son, brother and uncle, John.

My best memory of John was one Christmas Eve, he was going with my daughter Julie, and they came for dinner, we also had our neighbors, John made us laugh all evening and our neighbors said, that it was one of the best Christmas Eve they ever had. And it was because of John. He was a good guy. Condolences to his family.

Sincerest condolences to Bill and all the family on the death of John. He was a larger than life character, always with a grin on his face and an unmistakable laugh. He will be sadly missed by all the family, his death made sadder still following Anne's passing. Rest in peace John.

From Jimmie Maguire, Kildalkey
