BIOGRAPHY

Since Finbarr M Corr came from Ireland to the US in 1960 as a missionary priest, he has led a very full life. His ministry included working with inner-city youth and the adults of Northern New Jersey as well as counseling engaged and married couples. From his early years in Paterson, NJ, he was not just tolerant of other cultures and religions, but built bridges of communication and trust among people so that together they could work together for a better world.

After 28 joy-filled years as a Catholic priest, Finbarr resigned the priesthood to marry Laurie Hutton. He continued his ministry as marriage and family therapist, professor and writer. An active Rotarian, he now fosters dialogue between Muslims, Jews and Christians as a step towards world peace and understanding.

Finbarr many readers enjoy his Irish wit, the insights into relationships that he offers, and the way in which he encourages all not to be inhibited by life's obstacles but to the cross the bridge to a more fulfilling life.

A memoir as told to Finbarr Corr

"All of us, at one time or another have read the memoirs of famous people like presidents or great states people. Joe Carroll does not describe himself in his memoirs as a famous person nor would I, on the other hand, describe him as an "ordinary Joe."

With the help of a friend and former early Bird from the YMCA in Madison New Jersey, Finbarr Corr, he has shared with all of us his fascinating life story. Joe’s life has been filled with many loves: his love of work, which began while he was merely seven years old, his love of golf, cars, his family and his son, Robert.

Above all was his love for Adele, his sweetheart and life-partner for sixty-seven and a half years.

Joe has more than survived it all and challenges all of his golfing friends to shoot their age (93) as he is wont to do on the golf course."

Former Mayor, Madison N.J.
