  1. Another member of our community exits
    way too soon. Always a smile and a twinkle in his Irish eyes, able to gab with the best of us. Never met anyone that didn’t like Johnnie, except perhaps a temporary resident in the Sheriffs Dept. where he worked for about 20 years. A good friend, an anchor to his family and wind in the sails of his journey. I will miss seeing him about. God bless the McCarron family, our love and strength to you. The fabric of our community has a hole in it, now we have to weave it closed and mend our collective threads.

  2. John was a very classy guy on the Chilmark PD, at a time when it was not always a given.
    Whenever dealing with him on a professional or personal level, you always felt he was following the highest of ethical standards. His loss will be felt.
