Visiting Hours are April 8 for Matthew McGuinness

Matthew P. McGuinness passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on April 5, 2014 after a long, courageous battle with cancer.

He was born on May 23, 1968 in New York City to Maura Linehan McGuinness and Jack McGuinness.

Matthew graduated from Albertus Magnus High School, attended Iona College and received his B.S. degree from Nyack College. He was employed by Con Edison for 20 years.

He was an avid golfer and enthusiastic Met fan. He completed the New York City Marathon and his passion for running continued with regular visits to Rockland Lake.

He thoroughly enjoyed working with the students at Albertus Magnus HS where he coached basketball and baseball.

Matthew was one of a kind. He touched so many people with his great heart and most of all through his unique sense of humor, putting smiles on the faces of so many people throughout the years. He is at peace now in some dugout in heaven coaching the angels. 

He is survived by his parents Maura and Jack, his siblings Christine, John (Maureen) and Deirdre (Lou) Llach. He was the proud uncle of his adoring nieces and nephews, Abigail, Maille, Kaleigh, Jack, Sean and Ava. And most importantly, the love of his life, Jeanmarie Flaherty, whose support during his illness was immeasurable. 

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Albertus Magnus High School, Bardonia, NY. Visitation will be held at Michael J. Higgins Funeral Home, 321 South Main St, New City NY on Tuesday April 8 from 2-4 and 7-9pm. A Mass of Christian burial will be held at St. Gregory Barbarigo Church, Cinder Road, Garnerville, NY on Wednesday April 9 at 10am. Interment at Ascension Cemetery, Monsey, New York.
