Obituary for Edward Anthony "Tony" McLaughlin

McLaughlin, Edward “Tony” Age 72 years

Edward Anthony “Tony” McLaughlin, born May 6, 1949 in Malin Head, Donegal, Ireland, loving son of the late Edward and Catherine McLaughlin, passed away November 4, 2021, leaving behind his beloved wife of 47 years, Mary McLaughlin (nee Doolan). Tony was the devoted father of Finnuala McLaughlin (Dave Dobbins), Monica McLaughlin (Tim German), Michael (Gina) McLaughlin, and Kevin McLaughlin, the cherished grandfather of Connor Dobbins, Emmett Dobbins, and Corryn German, the caring brother of Mary (late Bill) Funchion, Sister Anne McLaughlin, Eileen (late Charlie) McLaughlin, Josephine (Tom) Boyle, David (Debbie) McLaughlin, Roisin McLaughlin, Sheila (Vincent) McGuire, James (Sheila) McLaughlin, and the late Patrick (Hope) McLaughlin, a loving brother-in-law, and an adored uncle of many nieces and nephews.

Tony retired as a skilled carpenter of 33 years from the Local Carpenters Union 62 and he took great pride in building three beautiful homes for his family. During his retirement, he continued sharing his carpentry talents with friends and family alike, as well as spending his mornings and afternoons genuinely enjoying the company of the spirited high school students he proudly drove on his bus route. Tony was the “unofficial mayor” of the Chicago Gaelic Park and Kerry Associations, serving them where needed and enjoying the Irish community he loved so dearly.

Tony was a gentle giant who would do anything for his friends and family. He was a force of nature on the dance floor and left a mark on all he met. Tony lived his life to the fullest every day and he will be deeply missed.
