Paul J. Clancy, 76 of Brick Twp. and a longtime resident of Manasquan, passed away Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at Jersey Shore Medical Center, Neptune with his devoted family at his side.

Paul was born in Short Hills but lived most of his life at the Jersey Shore. He had served in the United States Army and formerly owned PJ Clancy’s Pavillion (now Rod’s) in Sea Girt. A popular bartender in the shore area for over 30 years, Paul knew how to charm you and make you laugh with his quick wit and sense of humor. He was also a self-employed building contractor, owning Paul J. Clancy & Sons of Manasquan. One of Paul’s passions was flying and he held a pilot’s license for many years. More than anything, he was overwhelmingly proud of his sons and grandsons, and the love he had for his family was enduring.

Paul was predeceased by his parents Gerald and Edna (Cooney) Clancy and his 2 brothers John and Brian Clancy.

Surviving to mourn this tremendous loss are his devoted wife of 36 years, Kathy (Vergara) Clancy, his son Drew Clancy and wife Aimee of Brick, son Kyle Clancy of Brick, his brother Gerald Clancy and wife Carol of Rehoboth Beach, DE, his 3 grandsons Elliot, Owen, and Tristan Clancy and his mother-in-law Joan Straehle of New Rochelle, NY.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, May 25, 2019 from 10:00 am until the time of the Funeral Service at 2:00pm at O’Brien Funeral Home, 2028 Hwy 35 at New Bedford Rd., Wall.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in memory of Paul to Joan Dancy & PALS (People with ALS) Foundation, 1 Riverview Plaza, Red Bank, NJ 07701, an organization close to their heart.

Loss of a long time friend since MHS Class of '61 ! Shortly thereafter, he and I signed up for the draft ( only 2 yrs vs. other friends went to USMC 4yrs ) he had the Irish luck then as well. Both sent to Ft Jackson, SC for basic training, immediately thereafter I went to Ft Chaffee Arkansas, then on to Korea for a tour of 14 months, Pvt Clancy returned to Fort Monmouth, Eatontown, NJpersonal driver for a General. Just one of many stories, Kept in touch over the years, he was a class act. Deep condolences to all the family.

Thank you so much for those great memories Joe. He always bragged how lucky he got being the generals chauffeur at Fort Monmouth. He told me many good stories over the years about it. I have a great photo of my dad receiving a letter of appreciation from him as well. Thank you again. -Drew
