December 27, 1946 - March 22, 2016
McGLADE, Patrick F. – 69, recently of Cape May and formerly of Gloucester City, passed away peacefully in his sleep in the comfort of his home on Tuesday, March 22, 2016. He graduated from Gloucester Catholic High School in 1964 and received his Bachelor’s Degree in Business from Christian Brothers College. He recently retired from NJ Transit as a driver, prior to that he worked in real estate and insurance sales. In early 1970, Patrick was instrumental in founding and organizing one of the first girls basketball summer leagues in South Jersey. Patrick was an avid fan and supporter of girls basketball and many of the athletes from Gloucester Catholic HS teams and the Al Carino Girls Basketball Club of South Jersey benefited from his support by earning scholarships after the passage of Title IX. Pat was kind and generous, always checking in on his siblings. He took great pride in following his family’s careers and accomplishments. Basketball was a huge part of his life and March Madness was his favorite time of year. He is predeceased by his parents, Peter and Theresa McGlade and his younger brother, Peter “Uncle Pete” McGlade. Patrick is dearly missed by his loving family which includes his eight siblings, Christine (and Michael) Foley, Thomas Jefferson (and Rita) McGlade; Mary (and John) Schmidt; James A. McGlade; Roseanne “Mickey” McGlade; Agnus (and Jack) Berenato; Bernadette McGlade; Theresa McGlade (and Tony Lomdardi); sister-in-law, Sally McGlade, as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins. A celebration of Patrick’s life will be scheduled at a later date for extended family and friends. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to: The Theresa M. McGlade Scholarship Fund (c/o Mary Schmidt), PO Box 616, Gloucester, NJ 08030. This fund benefits an annual scholarship award for a senior graduating girls basketball player from a South Jersey High School. - This website offers many options to send flowers, PLEASE observe the request of the family to make a memorial contribution instead to the above named cause which is very dear to the McGlade Family.
