Joseph A. FitzGerald III, age 73, of Quincy, Mass., passed suddenly on June 22 at the Massachusetts General Hospital.

Born in Dorchester, Mass., he was raised in Mattapan and graduated from Christopher Columbus High School and the University of Massachusetts Boston. He worked for many years as a foreman for Turner Construction before retiring. Harness Racing was his passion and he wrote about his favourite sport in many worldwide periodicals. He was also known as “Over Trick” in the Boston Globe comment section, where he was recognized for his sense of humour and tongue-in-cheek remarks.

FitzGerald is survived by his dear friend, Mary Ellen Manning, of Norwood, Mass.; sister, Nancy Papy, of Virginia Beach, Va.; three nieces, many cousins, and a close circle of friends.

Due to current restrictions, a private funeral and burial will be held at Milton Cemetery in Milton, Mass. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in FitzGerald's memory to the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals at
