Received the very sad news this morning that long-time resident Francis "Finn" Finnerty has passed away. 

Some of you may know him as the husband of the late village historian, Joyce Finnerty, but Finn was an active member of the Croton Historical Society in his own right--and most recently worked on the "GET READY FOR AN EARTHQUAKE" exhibit about the destruction of the village and the coming of Route 9 at the municipal building. He also served his country during the Korean War and it was while preparing the Korean War series at Everything Croton that I got to know him best. (

Services will be held at the Edward F. Carter Funeral Home in Croton (41 Grand St., 914-271-4882)

Visitation/Wake will be held on March 3rd, 4 to 7 pm; funeral service at the funeral home 3/4 at 11 am; burial of ashes 3/4 at 11:45 pm, Bethel Cemetery
