Obituary of John Sean Carmody

John "Sean" Carmody age 79, of Sunnyside, Queens in New York, passed away on May 6th at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Queens after a brief illness. Funeral service and burial will be held locally and in Ireland at a time to be determined. Due to the magnitude of Corona virus there is no viewing and Edward Lynch Funeral Home will be handling the funeral arrangements. Sean was born in Ballybunion, Ireland to Catherine and John Carmody on March 1, 1941. He went to school in Ireland until he immigrated to the States when he was 19. Sean was one of the hardest working union members in construction. He was extremely generous to all who were lucky enough to know him. Sean loved watching sport and his passion was to watch and follow the Kerry team (GAA). He travelled to Croake Park in Dublin to watch his favourite team on numerous occasions to see many victories that Kerry won. Sean is survived by his sisters Noreen Burt (Ed), Bridie and Marianne Carmody and by his brothers, Dan (Eileen), Mossie (Valerie), Tommy (Maureen), Mick, James and Denis (Anne) Carmody. He leaves behind many beloved nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. Sean also leaves behind a special friend, Margie Kiernan. He is preceded in death by his parents and dearly loved brother Patsy Carmody and sister Mary Carmody (who sadly died at the age of 2). Sean will be sadly missed by his family and his many friends who he always enjoyed to have the "craic" with him. We will cherish the good times, happy memories and may Sean rest in peace
