Read more about the life story of Martin and share your memory.
Martin Joseph McNally, 74, of Oak Brook, Illinois passed away too soon on August 19, 2023. Marty is survived by his wife of 52 years, Janet Marie (O’Sullivan), daughters Tara (Robert), Elise (Kevin) and son Sean (Danielle). He was a very loving and dedicated grandfather to Isabelle, Finley, Zoey, Declan, Ainsley, Maisie, Wyatt, Olivia and Carolyn, who brought tremendous joy to his life.
Marty was born on February 5, 1949 in Chicago to Ray and Alice McNally. He was a devoted brother to the late Ann (late Jack) Neary, the late Ray (late Sue), the late Tom (Shirley), Pat (late Shirley), Mary (Ray) Hurley, the late Jean (Dennis) Cullom, the late Mike (Donna), Terry (Tom) Carroll, the late Jim (Mary), Dave (Maribeth), and Bill (Maryellen). Marty was also a treasured uncle to his many nieces and nephews, whom he adored.
Born and raised with his eleven brothers and sisters on the south side of Chicago, Marty attended Queen of Martyrs grammar school and put himself through Brother Rice, St. Procopius College, and Loyola Law School. Marty was a self-made man, excelling as a lawyer and entrepreneur, offering his support to clients, friends and family throughout his successful career. An avid White Sox fan, he was quick with a joke and always had a good story to tell. He remained a loyal friend to those from the south side, his golf buddies, business associates, and family over the years. Marty had an amazing ability to treat anyone as if they were lifelong friends, and one meeting would leave a lasting impression to those who encountered him. His generous nature and warm heart leave a proud legacy.
Marty’s passion and pride was his family. Marty, together with his high school sweetheart Janet, raised three children in the south suburbs of Chicago. They shared countless memories together, traveled the world, and welcomed nine beautiful grandchildren to the family. Grandpa Marty was always there to babysit, attend any sport or special activity, tell a story, make an inappropriate comment, or take them on a special day with Grandma Janet. His love and passion for life and family will be a part of them forever.
