McDOWELL-John F., Jr. Age 33 of Manhattan was tragically lost on September 11, 2001 in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. John was a vice president in equities at Sandler O'Neill & Partners. He was the beloved son of John F., Sr. & Patricia. Brother of Megan and fiance of Bebe Morrissey. His love of life and laughter inspired us all. He will be greatly missed by family and friends.

 

John F. McDowell will be honored by Barbara at the blog ConfessionsOf An Angel Waitress. This was the 1427th blogger to sign up for the 2,996 Tribute project.

One of the things remembered most about him was his great sense of humor. He always was quick with a joke. . His Memorial Service in September, and all of his family and friends shared wonderful, warm stories of him. He was engaged to be married, he had a successful career, and had so much going for him. I pray for his family and loved ones, for I can't imagine their pain.

 

John McDowell was highly respected. He was a bright and talented individual. My blessings to John and his family.

 

 

 

 He was outgoing, funny, and he never had a negative bone in his body. He always put a smile on everyone's face. To his family and friends....I'm deeply sorry for your loss. God Bless

John is somewhere over the rainbow having lived life to the fullest.  John shared his caring and kind spirit with all he knew and loved.  His loss is beyond words.

I deeply regret the loss to his precious family.  He seemed to be the light among many.  He was the kind of person who made your day better just to be around him.

God bless his family and friends

I am deeply sorry for your loss

Barbara
