Obituary for Hubert Joseph O’Toole

Hubert J. O’Toole, 86, of Convent Station, Normandy Beach, and Bonita Springs, Florida died at his daughter’s side on June 8, 2020, after suffering a stroke last week.

Born in Jersey City to Thomas and Anne (Jennings), his love for the “land of his birth” and for his education at St. Aloysius Grammar School (1947), St. Peter’s Prep (1951) and St. Peter’s College (1955) remained with him to the end. Raised with his brother Tom and cousin John Reilly, devotion to family was an equally guiding force of Hubie’s well lived life. Hubie married the love of his life, Emily (O’Keefe) in 1957. After her untimely death, Hubie found happiness in a long and successful marriage to Marie (Marano).

Before embarking on his professional career, Hubie was proud to serve his country as a 1st Lieutenant in the US Army, where he served in Korea, accompanied by two of his closest friends Larry Tormey and Gerard Hansen. He spoke glowingly of his service there his entire life.

Following a career in the computing software sales business, Hubie enjoyed a stellar profession as a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch & Company, where he rose to the title of Vice President before his retirement. Hubie enjoyed that retirement fully at Essex County Country Club (where he served as Treasurer and President), Mid-Ocean Club (Bermuda), Pelican’s Nest Golf Club (Florida) and Manasquan River Golf Club. He was also a long time member of the Morristown Club.

A man of great faith and generosity, Hubie was devoted to St. Peter’s College, but especially to St. Peter’s Prep, where he served on the Board of Trustees. He was honored to accept the accolade as a “Legend of Prep” for his years of devotion to his beloved high school and proudly bore “SPP 1951” as his license plate. Hubie extended his mission of faith to St. Ann’s Home for the Aged and to Loyola House of Retreats, for both of which he also served as President of the Boards of Trustees. His faith earned him an invitation to become a Knight of Malta, where he enjoyed his pilgrimage to Lourdes.

Ireland, and his countless visits there, held a special place in Hubie’s heart, where he leaves many cherished family members. His heritage was equally important to him here where he was a long-standing Friendly Son of St. Patrick in the City of New York. “The Boys from the County Mayo” was among his favorite tunes throughout his life, as was virtually any other Irish song he heard.

Hubie is survived by his loving son, John, and wife Suzie, his devoted daughter, Mary Ann “Missy” Long, and husband Declan, and their adoring children, Conor Jennings Long and Emmet Michael Long, both of whom he was thrilled to present with their diplomas when they graduated from “The Prep.” He also leaves his beloved step children and their families, Dr. Matthew Marano (daughter Blythe), Catherine Wheeler and husband John (children Graham, Kelsey and Shannon) and Peter Marano and wife Laura (children Mattie, Mark and Michael) brother in law John O’Keefe and his sisters in law Nancy Miller O’Toole, Mary O’Keefe and Patricia Condon, along with countless other relatives and friends.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made, if you wish, to St. Peter’s Prep, Jersey City, NJ or to Loyola House of Retreats, Morristown, NJ.
