John Edward McNally
August 10, 1953 ~ December 8, 2023 (age 70) 70 Years Old
John McNally, 70, of Fowlerville Michigan, passed away unexpectedly yet peacefully on December 7th, 2023. John grew up in Southgate, Michigan, a town he loved. After he graduated high school he started his career in the culinary industry. He spent the first half of his life cooking for TreeTops resort in Gaylord Michigan, and in the second half, he enjoyed a commercial painting career. When he wasn't busy in the kitchen or painting, he spent many hours outdoors. He loved to hunt, fish, and collect morel mushrooms. He truly enjoyed the simplicity of nature. John will be dearly missed and always remembered.
John was predeceased in death by his parents Marion and John McNally, and his sisters Kathleen (William) Donahey and Nancy Bernard. He is survived by his brother Charles (Lori) McNally, brother-in-law Butch Bernard, nephews William (Kimberly) Donahey and Christopher (Jodie) Donahey, nieces Joanne (Robb) Watts, Autumn (Jeff) McNally, April (Donald) Klavinger and Adrianne McNally, along with multiple great nieces and nephews. John requested a celebration of life to be held in his honor instead of traditional funeral services. We request all of John’s loved ones to join us in celebrating his beautiful life in early summer 2024, details are to be determined. In place of flowers, the family asks you to please donate to a charity of your choice.
