John Carrigg, 83, of Mays Landing, passed away on January 20th at Shore Medical Center in Somers Point surrounded by family. John was pre-deceased by the love of his life Bernadette O’Brien who he spent close to 40 years with. Throughout the years, they traveled all over the United States and stayed in some of the finest hotels and dined in some of the fanciest restaurants.

John’s mail route was in Jersey City, New Jersey, where he was well known at the County Court House. Upon his retirement, he moved to Mays Landing.
John was an avid sports fan and loved all the New York Sports teams, especially New York Mets and the New York Football Giants to whom he was a season ticket holder in his younger years.

John was a devout Catholic and throughout his life he was very generous to the Catholic Church. John’s favorite charity was the St. Francis of Assisi Food Pantry in New York City.
