Brian McCarthy Obituary

Brian Patrick McCarthy, age 53, died peacefully in his sleep on Monday March 20, 2023, at his Batavia home of complications from heart failure. 

Brian was born at Westlake Hospital, Melrose Park, IL September 25, 1969, to Vern McCarthy Jr and Gaylen Broyles McCarthy formerly of Oak Brook, IL. 

Brian grew up in Oak Brook, IL and was an avid aviation enthusiast. He took and taught flying lessons at American Flyers and Embry- Riddle University where he made lifelong friends. Brian graduated from Lewis University with a degree in aviation. Brian moved to Geneva, IL in 2003 where he was deputy director for former Congressman Peter Roskam. Brian was known for his sense of humor and kindness to strangers. He was the guy that would stop and help anyone on the side of the road. His daughters would always tease him for that, but he truly loved helping people. 

Amazingly, Brian had a life-saving double lung transplant in 2010, which gave him many more years with his loving young daughters, family, and friends.   

Brian is survived by his children Samantha and Sydney, brother Kenton McCarthy, sister Leslie Miller, nephews Brett, Blake, and Matthew Miller and his dear dog Earl and many dear friends. 

Brian is preceded in death by his father Vern McCarthy Jr and mother Gaylen Broyles McCarthy. 

Brian will forever be remembered by his family and many close friends.
