John C. “Jack” Donohoe, Jr.

Retired General Counsel to the MBTA;

John C. “Jack” Donohoe, Jr. of Marblehead, MA, formerly of Chelmsford and Lowell, passed away on Thursday July 26 at age 73.

Jack was the son of the late John Corbett and the late Kathleen (Prindiville) Donohoe. He was a graduate of the University of New Hampshire and Franklin Pierce Law School.

Jack is survived by his much beloved wife, Missey (Rutter) Donohoe, his adored daughters Catherine Corbett Bresner, Seattle WA and Margaret Corbett Donohoe (fiancé Michael Smith) Dover NH; his cherished stepchildren Elizabeth Cutler (William), Norwood and William Kirby, Southborough; step grandson Samuel Cutler, Norwood; and his sister Joan O’Neil, Rye Beach NH.

He was predeceased by his sisters Anne Sheehan and Barbara Newton.

Jack was a faithful friend of Bill W. for over 47 years, during which time he helped countless people rebuild their lives. He was a devoted husband, father, and brother. His many nieces and nephews delighted in his Irish wit and wisdom. He was a thoroughly entertaining raconteur, an avid student of history, and a political enthusiast.

Carrying on the family legacy, he practiced law for many years in Lowell and Chelmsford and, more recently, as a General Counsel to the MBTA. In retirement, he relished the opportunity to counsel young men in recovery when he worked for the Lawrence Correctional Alternative Center. All who knew and loved him will miss Jack’s vibrant spirit, but his presence will endure through his stories, which will be passed on for generations to come. Jack’s philosophy in life was a simple one: to be kind. He lived his life by this maxim, as evidenced by his longstanding friendships, his contributions to his community, and his fierce love for his family.
