John D. Morrissey

John Daniel (Jack) Morrissey, Sr., a retired New York advertising and marketing executive, died suddenly on Sunday, May 21, 2017. He was 88 and lived in Lakeville, CT and Pelham, NY. He is survived by his dear wife of 21 years, Carolyn (Clue) Uto Noble. He was predeceased by his first wife of 38 years, Patricia Carroll. He will be dearly missed by his beloved children and their spouses: Mary Pat and the Honorable Stefan R. Underhill of Fairfield, Connecticut; Dr. John and Mary Eileen Morrissey of Chevy Chase, Maryland; Tom and Mariette Morrissey of Pelham, New York; Cathy and Richard Daileader of Charlotte, North Carolina; Michael and Charlotte Morrissey of Phoenix, Arizona, and Mark Morrissey of Hawthorne, New York, and step children, Jon Holcomb Noble of Northampton, Massachusetts and Carolyn Noble of North Waterloo, Maine. His memory will be cherished by his twenty grandchildren: Mariah, Mark, Devin, Kerry, Colleen, Megan, Sara, Erin, Clare, Danny, Ryan, Maria, Shannon, Chris, Kent, Meredith, Mark, Hannah, Dave, and James.

Jack Morrissey, a graduate of Syracuse University, served as a second lieutenant in the Signal Corps of the United States Army before starting his decades-long career in advertising. Most notably, he spent twenty-five years with the J. Walter Thompson Company in New York, retiring as Senior Vice-President where he helped to grow the Warner-Lambert business. He had previously worked for Benton and Bowles, where he had been a vice-president and account supervisor for Procter and Gamble products, as well as Miles Laboratories and Whitman's Chocolates.

Jack loved Broadway shows, the Jersey shore, walks with his beloved dog, Reese, and gathering with friends and family for cocktail hour and fine food. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of composers, lyricists, and leads in almost any Broadway show. Jack was also a lifelong learner, pursuing curiosity about philosophy, logical reasoning, finance, astronomy and the arts. He loved to travel, especially to Paris.
