Obituary of Jack Corrigan

John V. (Jack) Corrigan, 86, passed away at UPMC Pinnacle Hospital on January 8, 2021. He was born in Ashland, PA on July 6, 1934 to George and Theresa (Shue) Corrigan. Jack was a 1952 graduate of Saint Joseph’s Catholic High School where he was a classmate of the love of his life and his wife of 34 years, Virginia (Ross) Corrigan who has undoubtedly welcomed him to heaven. He was also predeceased by his parents, his older brother Robert and his younger brother Thomas. He is survived by his youngest brother James. Jack earned his Associates degree from Penn State University. He retired from Source Interlink Companies in 2008. He is a Veteran of the Korean War, was an active member of the Knights of Columbus and former President of the St. Margaret Mary Athletic Association. Jack enjoyed golfing, Notre Dame football and most of all, spending time with his family. He was exceptionally devoted to his five children and their spouses: Jill Ametrano (Carmen); John V, II (Michelle); Michael (Christine); Christopher; and Patrick (Serena) all living in Harrisburg. The last third of his life was greatly enhanced by the love and joy of his 11 grandchildren and six great grandchildren who could depend on "Pop” to be a constant figure at sporting events, recitals and family gatherings. His family meant everything to him and he meant everything to his family. He leaves us with our perpetual gratitude for all that he has done as a father, grandfather and great grandfather. Due to Covid restrictions, a Private Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, January 22, 2021 at noon at St. Margaret Mary Church followed by a private burial at Resurrection Cemetery. Mass will be available via live stream at www.stmmparish.org at noon on the day of the service. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in his name to St. Margaret Mary School or Parish. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
