John S. Fagan, Jr.

March 6, 1972 ~ October 6, 2021 (age 49)


John Stewart Fagan Jr., of Worcester, MA, passed away unexpectedly on October 6th, 2021 at the age of 49 in Worcester, MA.

John was born on March 6th, 1972, to parents Donalda Rhodes and John Fagan in Holyoke, MA. He is survived by his mother, Donalda Rhodes and her husband Denver; his father, John Fagan; his son Taylor; his siblings Betty-Jo O’Brien, Kenneth Sulewski, Michelle Weaver, Cami Rhodes Harrar, Brett Fagan, and Michael Fagan; his cousin Stanley Duda; his nieces Jillian O’Brien and Teresa Hine; and his nephews Kevin O’Brien, Connor O’Brien, Tyler Eddingfield and Matthew Wilson.

John was a loving father, a beloved mentor, and a caring friend to many. Those he couldn’t befriend were inspired by his warm smile and charismatic charm, which earned him the nickname “Johnny Hollywood”. He was a gifted Chef who knew that what couldn’t be accomplished with words could be accomplished with a home-cooked meal and an outstretched hand. He was a dedicated worker, and never backed down from a challenge. His free spirit brought joy to all. He will be deeply missed by all those he touched in his life.
