During two terms as mayor of Parsippany-Troy Hills Township John Fahy was instrumental in the start of many programs for the municipality.

Because of his leadership, John “Jack” Fahy will be honored for his years of service to the township by the current governing body on Tuesday, June 17 at the mayor and council’s regular meeting.

Fahy is credited with the introduction of senior housing and transportation, and also introduced Green Acres funding for preservation of the Knoll Country Club & Golf Course. Township recreation programs were also expanded and the Parsippany Day Care Center began during his two terms, which began in 1974. 

Fahy died at his Parsippany home in May 2013 at the age of 83. 

The public is encouraged to attend the event, which begins at the Parsippany Municipal Building, 1001 Baldwin Road, at 7:30 p.m.

Too bad Patch doesn't even know where Town Hall is located.

Neither Vigilante or Fahy should be honored for anything.

@Lothar total cowardly thing to say

Troc, you know nothing of which you speak. Fahy should have gone to federal prison with regard to the Parsippany sewer plant scandal. As it turns out, apparently Vigilante had very cozy ties to the developer who bribed the Parsippany planning board attorney.
