John Carney Obituary

John B. Carney, 58, of Parkman, Ohio passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 14, 2024.

John was born in Youngstown, Ohio to the late John “Jack” Carney and Ann “Nancy” (Dempsey) Sainato on July 19, 1965.He graduated from Poland High School in 1983. He went on to be a corrections officer at Lorain Correctional Institution.

John enjoyed life to the fullest.  He was an easy-going guy with more stories than he could ever tell. His personality made making friends with anyone he came across easy. He always brought a smile to every room he entered. He loved being surrounded by friends and family.  You couldn't get past him without hearing a joke, talking about stocks, or showing you his favorite Reels.  And good luck trying to end a phone call with him ���.

He was an avid sports fan cheering on the Browns, Buckeyes, and Indians, and always rooting against Michigan.  On a nice day he enjoyed playing golf with his friends and son. He loved to cook and was excellent at making something delicious from scratch. Even more, he loved watching his daughter Julie and son Matt thrive in their new professions. Above all else he loved to be with his wife Lisa.

His motto was "do what you gotta do".  He lived by this his entire life and without hesitation did what he could for his family, friends, and coworkers.

John will be greatly missed by his wife Lisa, children Matthew and Julianne, sisters Nancy (Jeff) Williams and Michelle (Max) Fitzer and also many nephews and cousins. Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister Patty Ann Carney.

Per John’s wishes, cremation has taken place, and a celebration of his life will take place at a later date.
