John R. McGavisk, Jr., 66


John R. McGavisk, Jr., 66, passed peacefully on Thursday, March 18, 2021 at his Flemington home with his loving wife by his side.  He was born on November 11, 1954 to the late John R. McGavisk, Sr. and Imogene Husted Graziano.

Known to many as “Moose,” “Gov,” or “Uncle Moo,” he was truly one of a kind.  His laugh was contagious and a kinder heart was hard to find.  His interests ranged from all types of music and videography to watch collecting and cooking.  He was also an avid sports fan, and loved football.

John was the Head Chef at Foothill Acres Nursing Home, where he also met the love of his life, Margie.  He retired in 2002 and later became a stay at home dad to Pancho, his faithful Italian Greyhound.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sisters, Kimberly McGavisk, and Susan Miller.  He is survived by his wife, Marjorie (Arias), his brothers, Peter (Patricia) and Michael (Sandra).  He is also survived by many nieces and nephews whom he loved dearly.

Visitation will begin at 1pm on Saturday, April 24, and conclude with a Memorial Service at 2 pm at the Cusick Funeral Home, Somerville. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in John’s name to The Cancer Support Fund, C/O Hunterdon Medical Center, 9100 Westcott Drive, Suite 202, Flemington,NJ 08822
