George J McCabe

George J. McCabe, Jr., 75, of Pompton Plains, passed away suddenly on April 12, 2018.


The son of the late George and Elizabeth McCabe, George grew up in Kearny and Lincoln Park before moving to Pompton Plains in 1958.  He was part of the first graduating class at Pequannock Township High School in 1960 and continued his education at William Paterson College, earning his master's degree. George married the love of his life, Jeanne Fowler, in 1968 and the couple remained in Pompton Plains to raise their two sons.


George had a passion for education and spent his career as a teacher in Glen Rock, a job he absolutely loved. On the weekends, he worked several jobs in sales simply because he loved the challenge.  Above all else, George was a family man who enjoyed spending time with his wife and children.


George is survived by his wife of 50 years, Jeanne McCabe; his sons, George (Jamie) McCabe and his wife Jennifer, and Ryan McCabe; and his brother, Raymond McCabe.


Memorial visitation will be held from 3 to 7 pm Thu Apr 19 2018 at the M. John Scanlan Funeral Home, Pompton Plains.
