John Arthur David McCafferty
John McCafferty of Riverview, passed away Friday, September 10, 2021 at his residence. Born in Chatham Head, he was the son of the late Arthur and Anne Marie (Malley) McCafferty.
John had been a long-time employee of The Atlantic Superstore (Loblaws). When his girls were younger John took great pride and joy in coaching their ringette teams. He was an avid runner, having participated in the Boston Marathon and was an enthusiastic hockey fan. John loved hiking and being outdoors. He was a spiritual man that found his Zen and serenity working in his backyard and garden.
Anyone that met John knew that he loved to help people, always willing to help a family, neighbour, or friend in need. He had a goofy sense of humour and loved to make people laugh.
He is survived by his daughters: Krystle Macdonald (Mark) and Taya Hollingum (Ryan), sisters; Betty McCafferty (Danny Boyle) and Barbara McCafferty, a brother, Boyd (Bernadette), his cherished grandchildren: Kayden, Caleb and Maddex Hollingum, Oliver and Amelia Macdonald, as well as several nieces and nephews.
