July 15, 2004

John P. McNulty, a retired Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Co. employee and World War II Coast Guard veteran, died of cancer July 8 at his home in New Freedom, Pa. He was 84.

Mr. McNulty was born and raised in Baltimore, graduating in 1939 from Mount St. Joseph High School and attended Loyola College.

He was employed by the telephone company in 1940 as an engineer, and retired in 1982.

His career was interrupted by enlistment in the Coast Guard in 1942, and service as a radioman aboard the USS Bayfield in both the Atlantic and Pacific campaigns.

"He participated in four invasions. They were D-Day, Southern France, Iwo Jima and Okinawa," said his wife of 59 years, the former Catherine E. Schroepfer.

The former Towson resident had lived in New Freedom since 1989. He was a member of the American Legion's Parkville post and Veterans of Foreign Wars in New Freedom. He also was a member of the Towson Rebels social club.

He was a communicant of St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church in New Freedom, where a funeral Mass was offered Monday.

Mr. McNulty is also survived by a daughter, Ann M. Flynn of New Freedom, and four grandsons.
