John McPartland Obituary

John Harold McPartland, age 95, passed away in Columbia, Maryland on November 9th, 2023.

He was born on July 11, 1928, in Teaneck, New Jersey, the son of Michael J. McPartland and Margaret McPartland (nee Hasbrouck). He married Jeanne Theresa Moessner on July 14th, 1956. They lived in Washington Township, New Jersey, and later Mt. Arlington, New Jersey. He worked as a project engineer for the U.S. Army at Picatinny Arsenal, earning several commendations for exemplary performance. After retirement, they moved to Hackettstown, New Jersey, and later to Bevidere, New Jersey. After Jeanne’s stroke, they moved to an assisted living facility in Columbia, Maryland.

John was a veteran of the Korean War, serving in the engineer group of a headquarters unit. After years of attending night school, he earned his bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from New York University in 1957. He played sports all of his life, most notably tennis, skiing, and later, golf. He was an active member of (and president of) the North Jersey Whiz Skiers. His family has happy memories of many ski trips to the club’s lodge in Vermont. He regularly attended mass at his local Roman Catholic church, even going to services while on vacation.

John McPartland is survived by his beloved wife Jeanne – married for 67 years. Also his two sons, John M. McPartland and wife Patty Pruitt of Middlebury, Vermont, and Kevin J. McPartland and wife Karlyn of Jessup, Maryland; as well as two cherished granddaughters, Kari J. McPartland and husband Tyler Meneely of Frederick, Maryland, and Kathleen T. McPartland of Dubai, UAE.
