John McGrath

1962 - 2020


John McGrath, a longtime roofer from Malden, passed away on Thursday, July 30th. John was born in Everett in 1962, the son of John F. McGrath and Ann (DiStefano). He was raised in Malden and after completing his education, he began his career as a roofer. He first worked with Russo Roofing, before opening his own company, McGrath Home Improvement, which he has operated for many years. John was proud of his work and you couldn’t drive down a road with out him pointing out all the roofs that he replaced. When he wasn’t roofing , he was most likely riding his motorcycle, or spending time with friends and family. He will always be remembered for his friendly, outgoing persona and for the love he had for his kids and family.

John is survived by his children, Jameson McGrath-Morelli of Malden, Courtney McGrath of Malden, Stephanie Vaughan of Danvers and Heather Kweedor of North Andover. His mother Ann E. McGrath-Matheson of Malden, his brother John P. Matheson of Malden, his nieces Brianna McGrath and Nicole McGrath of Hudson, New Hampshire and his grandsons Colten and Brady.

John was preceded in death by his father, John F. McGrath and his brother, Scott E. McGrath.
