In Memory of
June 19, 2018
Ray Finnegan, 70, is survived by Maureen (née
Manley), his wife of 36 years and his daughters, Kate
and Keri. He was a beloved brother to Pat Finnegan &
Joanne Girard and uncle and grand uncle to many, and
friend to more than we can count.
He was born and raised in the Bronx and later lived in
Demarest, NJ and Hampton Bays, NY. After graduating from
Manhattan College in 1970 ( Go, Jaspers!) and later
earning his Masters in Finance from LIU, Ray had a very
successful 34-year career as a civil engineer with the
Port Authority where he started as a summer intern and
retired as the Assistant Chief Engineer.
After retiring from the PA, Ray enjoyed working for
Ferreira Construction Company. While at the Port
Authority Ray met Maureen when she worked for his best
friend, Jack Spencer. Both Ray and Jack survived the
terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in 1993 and
2001. He greatly enjoyed planning many vacations with
family and friends, golfing with his fellow Jaspers on
the weekends and relaxing with Maureen at his home in
