MacLAUGHLIN [Ft. Lauderdale FL, Sun-Sentinel, 20 February 1997] Edward "Ted" MacLaughlin, whose humor, courage and devotion to the sick was an inspiration to all who met him, has lost his fight against AIDS. Mr. MacLaughlin died in his sleep at his Fort Lauderdale home early on Tuesday just as he had wished. His mother, Anna, was nearby. He was 56. "He wanted to go to sleep peacefully in his own bed and not wake up. And that's what happened," Mrs. MacLaughlin said. "God was good." Born Sept. 3, 1940 in Providence, R.I., Mr. MacLaughlin graduated with an English degree from Providence College. He earned a master's degree in theater art for teaching at Emerson College in Boston. In 1981, he moved to Fort Lauderdale after a divorce. He taught English at Dillard High for 14 years until his illness forced him to retire in July 1995. A caring teacher, and a friend to those who suffered from AIDS, Mr. MacLaughlin also was a gifted writer. Just before Christmas 1995, he wrote a letter to the Sun-Sentinel in response to a request for readers' favorite Christmas memories. Mr. MacLaughlin wrote about Christmas 1947. His mother, then sick and short of money, traveled across the state of Rhode Island to find a pair of new cowboy boots for her then 7-year-old son. Now, Mr. MacLaughlin told of another journey his 81-year-old mother was making: To spend Christmas in Florida with her son, who was now too sick to travel to his family's home in Rhode Island. "Maybe," Mr. MacLaughlin joked, "I can find her some cowboy boots." Mr. MacLaughlin's letter about the love between a mother and son was so poignant, it resulted in a Lifestyle section story that was published on Christmas Day 1995. Much to his own surprise, Mr. MacLaughlin lived to celebrate one more Christmas. His mother returned to Fort Lauderdale in mid-December for a two-month stay. As he did a year earlier, he threw an open house. He called it his second annual "This Is My Last Christmas" party and never lost his good humor. But the past year had taken its toll. He was 10 pounds thinner. His energy had faded, and his voice sounded weary. Still, he devoted six days a week to The Poverello Center in Wilton Manors, which provides meals and helps those with AIDS. Mr. MacLaughlin was a fixture at the center's thrift shop, where he folded and priced clothes, six mornings a week. "Ted was here every day, even as sick as he was," said Tom Smith, a volunteer and board member. "He never missed a day." Often, Mr. MacLaughlin would bake lasagna or cheese and broccoli quiche at home and bring meals to other volunteers. This past Christmas, "he sat there and filled about 1,000 green jars of candy for our clients. He just pushed himself to the max," Smith said. "He had a lot of friends here. He's going to be very sorely missed." Mr. MacLaughlin continued to work at the thrift shop until about two weeks ago, when his health worsened. On Monday afternoon, he returned for a last visit. "He never lost his faith," his mother said. "He touched a lot of lives. He made a lot of people happy." In addition to his mother, Mr. MacLaughlin is survived by two daughters, Kristen L. of State College, Pa., and Amy K. of West Warwick, R.I.; a sister, Dorothy Glover of North Kingstown, R.I.; and a granddaughter. A memorial service and Mass will be celebrated at 7:30 p.m. Friday at St. Henry Catholic Church, 1500 SW 12th Ave. in Pompano Beach.

McAVOY [Fall River MA Herald News, Tuesday 14 Sep 2004] Fall River - John J. McAvoy, a man well-known for his years managing the downtown theaters and later as a Herald News columnist, died Monday at Charlton Memorial Hospital. He was 84. Born in Fall River on May 27, 1920, he was the son of Irish immigrants, the late Thomas and Mary (Farrell) McAvoy. He was predeceased by five siblings - Mary "Mae" C. Keating, Ann McAvoy, Helen McAvoy, Thomas McAvoy and William McAvoy. McAvoy's column, "Under the Marquee," where he brought to life the theaters, streets and long forgotten images of 1920s, '30s and '40s Fall River, appeared in The Herald News each Sunday for 22 years. For McAvoy, who'd already grown quite a reputation in the city as a historian, his column was not something he'd pursued on his own. "I had to talk him into it," said Edward St. John, Herald News publisher emeritus, who approached McAvoy for the job when the paper began printing a Sunday edition in 1981. St. John already knew him from the many lectures McAvoy presented to area guilds, churches and clubs about old Fall River. "In a way, he was like Mr. Fall River," said St. John. "He brought the Broadway shows to Fall River. He brought Vaudeville to Fall River. He was always on Main Street. He was such a likable person and a great storyteller." Although McAvoy had never done any writing for a newspaper, St. John said: "I was surprised he was never approached earlier to do a column." And, St. John's instincts were good. "He was an instant hit, which I figured he would be" with "his knowledge of Main Street." Over the years, McAvoy garnered a following, the old who remembered Fall River's theaters and Main Street shops, and the young who could picture it through his eyes for the first time. "He had a big audience in town and among former residents. He kept them in touch with their past," said St. John. McAvoy wrote not only about the theaters and the many actors and actresses he met and befriended, but about everyday life back then. He wrote about Durfee High School teachers, his beloved mother who died while he served during World War II, shopping and eating downtown, his many travels, and Christmas as a child. He'd taken all of his experiences and molded them into a second career of sorts. For 41 years, he managed the grand theaters of Fall River, a job he loved according to his own columns. During his four decades of opening nights, McAvoy served the public at the Durfee, Empire, Center, Academy, Capitol, Park and Embassy Theaters, and at Somerset Playhouse. Several stars he called friends, such as Mae West, Maurice Chevalier and Tallulah Bankhead. Other entertainers he got to know, include Lillian Gish, Guy Lombardo, Gypsy Rose Lee, Montavani, Nat King Cole, Liberace, Billie Burke, Dick Powell, Imogene Coca, and Ethel Waters. McAvoy was also friend to local greats, such as William S. Canning, for whom the south end boulevard is named, and Humberto Cardinal Medeiros, as well as many political figures, artists and musicians. Friends of McAvoy often speak of his ability to tell a story, to remember details most would forget, and to spur laughter. "He was a great storyteller and a good man," said William McDonald, a long-time friend of McAvoy. McAvoy is the god-father to McDonald's son, Justin. "We considered him extended family. After work, he would come by our house for tea or a Coca-Cola," McDonald continued. "He would regale us with stories and make everyone laugh." McAvoy also wrote of his exploits while serving with the U.S. Army during World War II, which he considered a good four years. He was stationed in Paris the day the war ended in Europe. While serving, McAvoy was also stationed at Fort Devens, Camp Myles Standish, Endgewood Arsenal, Md.; Camp Rucker, Ala.; Camp Campbell, Ky.; Tennessee Maneuvers; Camp Shanks, N.Y.; and in England, France, and Luxembourg. On his own, McAvoy enjoyed traveling with friends and visited England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, France, Monaco, Spain, Portugal, Madeira, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Russia, Hungary and Canada. In his younger years, McAvoy attended Sacred Heart School, James Madison Morton Junior High School, and was a 1937 graduate of B.M.C. Durfee High School. McAvoy served on Durfee's Alumni Association for many years. "He was vice president of our class," said classmate, Anna Harrington. Harrington said McAvoy "was very entertaining" and "very talented." "He was good company and he was a good storyteller," she said. Helen Piper, also a classmate of McAvoy, said they "ran the reunions together every five years." She remembered Alumni meetings being held for years at the Durfee Theater and later at McAvoy's Underwood Street home. "He was very, very well known. He could keep you in stitches with the stories he could tell," said Piper. A proud moment for McAvoy, according to long-time friend, Maureen Harrington, was when he received an Alumni Association award on May 28, 1999. Also of note, McAvoy in 1995 was the grand marshal of the St. Patrick's Day Parade for the Fall River Clover Club. McAvoy was also the celebrated guest on "John McAvoy Day" on June 8, 1984 at the Quequechan Club. He received the Arts Unlimited annual award for outstanding service to arts in the community, for his work as a theater manager, historian, and lecturer. In 1987, a theater auditorium at the Harbour Mall was named for McAvoy. Proud of his Irish-Catholic descent, McAvoy was a parishioner of St. Joseph's Church on North Main Street. He was an avid reader. McAvoy was also a lover of Christmas, something he undoubtedly inherited from his mother according to his much heralded Christmas column. He collected Santa Claus figures for many decades, which often decorated his theater office. He is survived by his friend of 57 years, Maureen Harrington; two nephews, Thomas and Marshall McAvoy of Barrington, R.I.; a niece, Karen McAvoy of Barrington, R.I.; and a grand-niece and grand-nephew, Erin and William McAvoy, both of Barrington, R.I. Funeral arrangements are not yet available.

In addition to his family, Mr. McCarron's outside passions were charity work for his church, Sacred Heart Church in Lombard, and fishing and golf. For years, he was involved with the Lombard Early Morning Golf Association, which met on Saturdays as early as 6 a.m., allowing fathers to get home to family duties, Egan said. He also found a way to apply his golf passion to charitable uses. In 1983, Mr. McCarron was among the six founders of the Greater Lombard Invitational Golf Tournament, a benefit that contributes funds to the Evans Scholars Foundation, which provides college scholarships to caddies. Mr. McCarron was also a past president of the Holy Name Society of Sacred Heart Church and served for many years as a church usher and parking lot marshal. "There were no activities that he considered too menial," Egan said. "For the church's German Fest, he probably cooked more brats and had more tears rolling down his eyes from the smoke than any other person connected with it. Even though he was high up on the committees, he'd bend to any length to make something work." Mr. McCarron's son, John McCarron, an editorial writer and columnist with the Chicago Tribune, said that hard-working spirit was one of his father's most endearing qualities. "He never cut corners on his employer, in snow, rain or whatever," John McCarron said. "And I always try to impress upon my own kids that your first obligation is to just show up. Poppy taught me that." In addition to his son, Mr. McCarron is survived by his wife of 56 years, Catherine Frances "Kay;" a daughter, Mary Miles; and four grandchildren. Visitation will be from 3 to 9 p.m. Thursday in Brust Funeral Home, 135 S. Main St., Lombard. A funeral mass will be said at 10 a.m. Friday in Sacred Heart Catholic Church. 114 S. Elizabeth St., Lombard.

Frances began her long nursing career at Rhode Island Hospital where she was a student and lived on campus at the age of 16. She worked at many nursing jobs over the years and gave of herself tirelessly. She always went above and beyond her nursing duties and always gave unselfish love to all, in the form of a needed nightgown, a box of tissue, candy, or just a kind word and a hug. Even when a nursing home she worked for was closing and the owner was having financial difficulties she would cook meals at home and bring them in to feed the patients. She retired from Buttonwoods Crest Nursing home at the age of 70, and then only because it was closing. We are all looking for the meaning of life, Frances knew that meaning: to love and help each other while here, which she did all her life, family, friends or a total stranger. A lesson all of us try to achieve but few of us ever reach. She was a very special and beloved mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt and she will be sadly missed by all. Funeral arrangements were private.
