Obituary

McCollum, John J. from Warminster, PA went home to his Lord on Monday July 15 th , 2019 at the age of
87. Most beloved husband of 63 years to Dorothy E. McCollum (nee Fedor), and loving father of two
children, Shawn J. ‘his number one son’ and wife, Patti and ‘number one daughter’ Kelly Anne McCollum.
He was also the loving brother to AnnMarie Kehan, and brother in-law to Joan Billings (Fedor) and
Andrew ‘Sonny’ Fedor. He also had many nieces and nephews.
John, who decided in his 70s that he would like to be called ‘JJ’, was a lifelong Eagles fan. To those who
knew him, every conversation always touched on the Eagles or the Phillies. JJ attended numerous Super
Bowls and was on cloud nine when his beloved Eagles made it to the Super Bowl and won. He had a
longstanding rivalry with his ‘number one son’ as Shawn was a Dallas Cowboys fan. Football season
always entailed phone calls between them before the game was over when the other’s team was losing.
JJ and his wife Dorothy loved to travel and went on multiple cruises and extended stays in Florida. He
thoroughly enjoyed the time they spent together.
Many people knew JJ from his time spent bartending. His most favorite place where he spent close to 20
years behind the bar, was the Old Mill Inn in Hatboro. There, one of the owners had a shared love for
the ‘Chairman of the Board’, Frank Sinatra.
JJ was also well known at all the local bakeries. His family knew to never let him enter a bakery on his
own as when he would come out it would be with a big smile on his face and both hands laden with his
favorite white boxes and white bags. We thank his mother, Ann McCollum for passing on that love of
bakeries!
JJ, also known as Dad and most importantly ‘Mick’ to his wife, traveled a rough road in 2019. He dealt
with a number of health issues this year, but always wore a smile and told everyone ‘he was feeling
pretty good’. We know it was a challenge for him, and his family appreciates how hard he tried for us.
Rest in Peace JJ.
Relatives and friends are invited to JJ’s Life Celebration on Tuesday, July 23, 2019 beginning at 10:30 AM,
followed by his memorial mass at 11AM at Nativity of Our Lord Church, 605 Street Rd, Warminster, PA
18974. Interment private.

I remember many family vacations with my Uncle Jack in earlier years - "down the shore and up the mountains". Many, many summers in his family's pool, barbecues and fun times. He was always kindhearted and very good with children. He was the first one there when my father died many years ago and his reassuring presence was much needed. Uncle Jack will never be forgotten. Love, Maureen

Words cannot express what I feel at the loss of my father. For the past seven months, I was there at my father’s side to help him through his health challenges. It was heartbreaking to see the man who raised you and lifted you up on his shoulder, become frailer and slowly begin slipping away from you as he was able to do less and less.
I was the only boy and the ‘number one son’ and he filled my life with wonderful memories that I will always cherish. Dad was a season ticket holder for the Eagles and took me to all the games when I was growing up. Before every Dallas/Eagles game, my Dad would tell me, ‘you better not cheer for Dallas as the rest of the guys will want to throw you over the railing’.
Every summer when the Eagles started their summer practice, he would take me to where they practiced, and we would wait outside where the players walked by so that we could get their signature.
When the Flyers won the Stanley Cup one year, he took me down to Philly so we could see the Stanley Cup up close.
Every Christmas, he would take us down to the city and walk us through all the department stores for the Christmas displays. As a child, you don’t realize that this is probably the last place he wanted to be given he worked five days a week in the city. When there were parades, he would take us to his office so we could look down and see everything.
You don’t always appreciate your parents when you are younger, but as you get older and you see them begin aging, you begin to realize how much they did for you and what you will do for them. I was there with my Dad when he took his last breath and I hope I gave my Dad comfort as he went onto his next journey. I know he is still with me in everything I do and say and that brings me comfort knowing he is close to my heart. I miss you Dad.
Love – Number One Son

JJ (Dad McCollum) you were such a special person in my life. The times we spent together will never be forgotten. If your number one son didn’t want to go out to dinner,you never hesitated in inviting me to go. I never said no and was always excited to go out with you. You never forgot my birthday (a phone call with your kazoo) which I loved hearing and yes that white box of goodies!! You spoiled me on Valentines Day also with another white box and chocolates! I could go on and on about what a kind and loving person you were. I am glad I got to spend time with you your last days as we had a few laughs. I will surely miss you and your humor. You will hold a special place in my heart forever. Love you, Patti

My brother was very special to me. It was just the two of us. Growiing up, he looked after me when our mom had to go to work.
Of course he would be the typical big brother and tell Mom not to let me go to some places I wanted to go. We had some great family vacations together at the shore and the mountains. I got to spend one of his last days with him. He was very alert and we had a great visit. I will always remember him telling me he loved me and that I was his number 1 sister. I told him I loved him too. I will never forget that visit. I will miss him forever and he will remain always in my heart
