NEWPORT & GRAY - Jon Christopher McCarron,Jr., 8, passed away October 12, 2015 at Maine Medical Center in Portland. He was born February 21, 2007 in Bangor, a son of Jon and Brooke (Emerson) McCarron, Sr.
JJ was a member of the 3rd grade class at the Russell School in Gray. He loved spending time with his little community of special needs friends. JJ loved the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, doing anything exciting, and enjoyed fishing and music. His favorite word was "boobies". JJ was baptized as a Methodist.
In addition to his parents, JJ is survived by his great grandmother Mary Emerson; his grandparents, Robert Bubar, Tammy Emerson and Carol McCarron; his brother Seth McCarron and sister Britney McCarron; his aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family, and his special nurse Stephanie Shapiro.
Friends may call at the Wilson Funeral Home, 24 Shaker Road, Gray, from noon until 2 PM Saturday, October 17th. A memorial celebration of life will be held across the street at the Russell School from 1 to 3 PM Saturday as well.
Graveside funeral and committal services will be held at noon Monday, October 19th, at the Detroit Village Cemetery, Detroit, with Pastor Mark Gumprecht officiating. As JJ lived half of his life in Newport and the other half in Gray, the family wanted both services held for the convenience of others. They also understand and do not expect both services to be attended. Memorial donations may be sent to JJ McCarron Go Fund Me. Local arrangements are by Crosby & Neal, Newport.
