Ralph loved fishing and had a rod in-hand whenever possible. His favorite activity was sitting in his yacht in the pond at his sons house. He loved people, had a wicked sense of humor and a generous heart; he always lent a hand to those who needed help. He will be deeply missed by all of those whose lives he touched. Ralph leaves his children, Christine (Hefler) Sandgren of Marblehead, his son Scott Hefler and his wife Karen Jean (Woodfin) Hefler of South Hampton, NH, and daughter Karen Hefler of Marblehead, his grandsons Erik Andrew Sandgren of Marblehead and William Hefler of South Hampton, NH, his sister Shirley Bond and her husband Ray of Bristol Rhode Island, his sister-in-law Doris Hefler of Nahant, his cousins Fred Sullivan of Marblehead and Patricia Eggermann of Huntington, NY, and several nieces and nephews.

We just learned that our good friend Vicki Droker, former Tel Sales Rep died on October 26th.  May she rest in peace.

Hi Ms. Palmer,

My Mother passed away suddenly on Wednesday October 26, 2016 in Walnut Creek, CA.  She was 2 weeks shy of her 98th birthday.  Until the last year she followed all that went on with YP retirees, including all of the litigation regarding the pension issues.  Without a doubt working at YP was  the highlight of her life.  If it weren't for those "dang" computers, I doubt she would have ever retired.  We joked about the fact that most of her friends had passed on, except for her "buddies" from YP.  She was the best Mom, Gran and Great Gran a family could ever wish for.  She will be missed but her spirit lives on in those who new and loved her.  She was magnificent, and she will be missed.

Sue was always cheerful and enjoyed her friends and family immensely. Sue always saw the good in everybody she met. She had many barriers in her life; but that never stopped her from doing for others or being with her family and friends. Her ability to live in the moment is something we all will take away from our knowing Sue as she did it so well.

A life well lived for 96 years concluded on February 6th, 2016, when Francis J. "Brud" Higgins, Sr. of South Hadley died at Renaissance Manor in Holyoke. He was born in Holyoke on December 4, 1919, the son of Frank and Margaret (Sheehan) Higgins. Educated at Sacred Heart schools, he was a gifted athlete who first gained local attention on the basketball court in the 1930s as the driving force of Sacred Heart's three consecutive Western Mass Small School Tournament Championships at UMASS, a feat never replicated in the long history of that tournament. Moreover, basketball wasn't his best sport. In his last year of school he led his baseball team to an undefeated regular season while leading Western MA in hitting with a .521 batting average. After a short term with the Brooklyn Dodger farm system, he returned to Western MA where he successfully coached his former High School's basketball and baseball teams before and after serving his country in the Navy during World War II. His athletic accomplishments were recognized when he was inducted with the inaugural class of Holyoke Catholic's Athletic Hall of Fame in 2010. Brud spent his professional life in sales. He began in the automobile business as a key member of management teams at Ford dealerships in Holyoke, Springfield, Pittsfield, and Hartford. Later, he transitioned into the advertising business serving for two decades as a sales executive for the Yellow Pages division of New England Telephone and Telegraph. His leisure interests were varied, but definitely included golf. He was at various times a member of The Orchards Golf Club, and Wycoff Park Country Club, where he served multiple terms as an officer of the Men's Golf Association. His ability as an excellent iron player accounted for many holes in one - estimated by some at 13. Brud also loved to travel. As a young man he enjoyed family vacations in Old Lyme, CT. and years later, wintered in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, FL. often accompanied by family and close friends. His ports of call included but were not limited to Hawaii, Ireland, Italy, Bermuda, and CA - once again often joined by family members and dear friends. Brud loved the idea that around every corner on these trips was something he had never seen before. During his later years, he enjoyed watching golf and UCONN Women's basketball from the safety of his recliner. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his wife Dorothy (LaBelle), his sisters Mildred Higgins, and Lucille Burke, and a brother Edmund Higgins. His memory will be cherished by his son, Brud Higgins Jr. and his wife Judi of South Hadley, as well as by his daughter Catherine Higgins of South Hadley, with whom he lived. He also leaves a loving brother, John ("Hacko") and his wife, Ellen of South Hadley. He will be also be remembered by his granddaughters Tara Morrissey and her husband Brian of Watchfield, England, Jill Therrien of Springfield and Jami Wells and her husband Ben of Somerville, MA. He also leaves two loving great-grandchildren, Torsten Morrissey, and Leah Wells, and several nieces and nephews. The family would like to acknowledge the wonderful care he received by the staff at Renaissance Manor, with special thanks to his nurse, Julianne. The funeral will be held Thursday February 11th at 9:00am from the Barry J. Farrell Funeral Home, 2049 Northampton St. Holyoke, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10:00am in St. Patrick Church, Main St. South Hadley. Burial will be held in St. Jerome Cemetery. Calling hours will be held Wednesday from 4:00 to 7:00pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Shriner's Hospital, 516 Carew St., Springfield, MA 01104 or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN 38105

We just learned that Richard Angell passed away on January 12, 2015. May he rest in peace.

GORHAM - Richard Maurice Angell, 69, of Gorham, formerly of Easton, Mass., passed away on Jan. 12, after a courageous fight. A special thank you to Dr. Justin Hart Sandver and so many others at Maine Medical Center for the amazing care they provided.
Born on May 3, 1945, in Portland, the son of the late Ernest C. and Janette M. (Woodbury) Angell, Rick graduated from South Portland High in 1963 and the University of Maine, Orono, in 1967, where he was a member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity. Upon graduation, Rick embarked on a 35 year career with the telephone company, starting with New England Telephone in Lewiston, and retiring from Verizon in Braintree, Mass., in 2002. It was his career that took him to Easton, Mass., where he and Donna raised their three children. After retirement, he returned to Maine and settled in Gorham where Rick pursued his passions.
He was a voracious reader of American history and this love of history led him to volunteer at the South Portland Historical Society, where he served on the Board of Directors and assisted with the restoration of its museum. He volunteered at his church as an usher and was past president of the Eskimo men's club. As a former three sport letter recipient at South Portland High School, he thoroughly enjoyed following local high school athletics.
Rick was a lifelong animal lover and he and his wife Donna shared their home with numerous pets. He had a special bond with his dog Rudy, whom he missed tremendously after his passing at 14 years old. But what he was most passionate about was his family, who will all miss his quirky sense of humor, his generosity, and his steadfast determination.
Rick leaves behind his beloved family, wife of 47 years, Donna (Belleau); his mother-in-law, Melba Belleau of Melrose, Mass.; his daughters, Shari Pitts and her husband Fordie of Bridgewater, Mass., Jayme and her boyfriend Joseph of Boston, and his son Geoffrey and his wife Michelle of Pembroke, Mass.; and his greatest legacy, his three grandchildren, Taylor, Kendall and Kepler. The family also wants to acknowledge Katja Hendrishke of Germany, their former year-long exchange student, with whom he and Donna had maintained a special relationship; and his many friends in the area.
The middle of seven children, Rick was predeceased by Judith Leeman and her husband Henry. He is survived by his siblings William Angell and his wife Diane, Dianne Burns and her husband Kevin, Lynn Angell, all of South Portland, Deborah Thayer and her husband Alden of Gorham, and Robert Angell of Arlington, Mass.; and many nieces, nephews, grand nieces and grand nephews.
A memorial service will be held on Thursday, Jan. 15, at 2 p.m. at First Congregational Church, 301 Cottage Road, South Portland. A Celebration of Life will follow at the church.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Rick's memory can be made to

John (Jack) Ronald Morrison, age 87 died on July 14, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer.

He is survived by his brother David (Joanne) and Jack's three married children: Lisa Morrison (Kevin Cooley), Chris Morrison (Ann Partee Morrison), and Tom Morrison (Beatrice Friedman). He also leaves 8 grandchildren: Matt Cooley, Shirley Ann Morrison, Emily Cooley Hazard, Ben Morrison, Hannah Cooley, Molly Morrison, Carly Morrison, and Luke Morrison. 

Jack grew up in Weirton, West Virginia as the son of a steel worker. Jack enlisted in the US Army in 1946 and served in occupied Japan. After his military service, he attended Bethany College and earned an undergraduate degree; he later received an MBA from the Wharton School of Business. At Bethany, he met and married Shirley Ann Eckberg from NJ. He was a loving partner and they had a blessed life of 58 years together until Shirley's death in 2012.

In 1953 Jack and Shirley married and moved to Camden, NJ where Jack was employed by Raytheon Corporation in their HR department. In 1959, Raytheon(soon to be RCA) asked the family to move to Santa Barbara, California for a new position. In 1962 Jack was recruited to join a private executive search firm, first moving to Los Angeles and finally to San Francisco in 1964. In 1974 Jack started his own executive search firm and it grew to become a very successful enterprise. He was in early on the electronic/tech field and recruited many high level executives in these industries.

Jack was a passionate St. Francis Yacht Club member and adventurer—after moving to California he owned and raced sailboats as well as crewing on many other boats all over the world. After retiring, Shirley & Jack traveled the world together to many exotic destinations, they were unstoppable. Their extended family & friends would often receive postcards telling them about their adventures. 

Jack's proudest achievement and greatest joy was his family. Jack/Shirley took his entire family on holiday vacations spending much time of their free time visiting and adventuring with them. Jack was very proud of his grandchildren and attended each of their high school and college graduations (as well as many of their earlier sporting events); he was proud of the adults they have become. 

He was a loving father/grandfather and a knight in shining armor – he will be dearly missed. He had great friends throughout the world and many happy times with Cynthia Yamoto as well as many other local friends including his Sunday Brunch table-mates at Villa Marin. Many thanks to the caregivers at UCSF, VA hospital, Hospice Marin and Villa Marin – we appreciate their extraordinary care of Jack as he battled illness and rested comfortably in the last weeks of his life.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Marin YMCA (Jack was a lifetime member of the Marin YMCA and had served on its board).

All are invited to a celebration of Jack's life is planned for 3 pm on August 20th at Villa Marin in San Rafael.

We just learned that long time DAC Member Dick Snow passed away on August 19, 2015. Rest in Peace Dick.

In Memory of

Richard E. Snow

November 30, 1930 - August 19, 2015

Surrounded by the family he loved so much and who truly loved him, Richard (Dick) Snow went home to Paradise on August 19, 2015, following a long battle with Alzheimer's disease. Even in the face of this devastating disease, he continued to be a source of delight for everyone he encountered. He was 84 years old.

Dick was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, on November 30, 1930, to Phyllis and Virgil Snow. It was there that he met the love of his life, Marie Lehane, and they began their 61-year journey of love together. They eventually settled in Burlington, Vermont, where they raised their two sons, David and Dennis, who continue to cherish their Dad and Mom.

For 33 years he sold advertising for the Yellow Pages, and was deeply loved by his clients and coworkers, many of whom became close friends. He was known for his sense of humor and his ability to put people immediately at ease, treating everyone with dignity and respect. He mentored many of the company's employees throughout his career - starting in Burlington and later in Derry, New Hampshire, where they lived for another 15 years.

Magic was a hobby early in his life, and he delighted in entertaining family and friends. Later in life he played golf (kind of), but eventually found that buying and selling antiques was a true passion. Along with a close group of friends who shared that passion, he and Marie travelled New England on weekends setting up at antique fairs, where conversation and fun were just as important as success in selling antiques.

After both sons settled in Orlando, Florida, Dick and Marie relocated there and spent most of their time surrounded by their ever-expanding family. Dick liked nothing more than to attend his grandchildren's or great grandchildren's ballgames, recitals or any other event they happened to participate in. No one could ask for a better cheerleader.

Dick loved Windermere Union Church. He and Marie quickly became known for their hospitality with visitors, many of whom became members of the church because of the welcome they received from Dick and Marie. His church family was very important to him.

As Dick's Alzheimer's progressed, it became necessary for him to move to an assisted living facility - Spring Hills at Hunter's Creek. The staff immediately fell in love with him, and doted on him throughout his time there. Even at the end, the staff was constantly by his side with prayers and blessings, something for which Dick's family will be forever grateful. 

Dick is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Marie Snow, sons David (and Dianne) Snow, Dennis (and Debbie) Snow, grandchildren Jason (and Diana) Snow, Jennifer Snow (and Jerome Sanders), Laura (and Steven) Nelson, Danny (and Naketrice) Snow & David Snow. Great grandchildren Tori Nelson, Kelsey Grafal, Nathan Snow, Alexia Coleman, Jai Lei Jackson, Jerell Sanders, Jacob Snow, and Trinity Snow. He also leaves behind his younger brother, Bill (and Suzie) Snow of Manchester, Connecticut.

A memorial service will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 27, 2015, at the Windermere Union Church located at 10710 Park Ridge Gotha Road, Windermere, Florida, 34786. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Richard Snow to either the Windermere Union Church, or Cornerstone Hospice in Orlando, both of whom so tenderly cared for him in his final days.

Harry R. Wiley
1929 - 2015 Obituary Condolences

SCARBOROUGH - Harry R. Wiley, 85, of Scarborough, passed away peacefully on Monday, April 20, 2015, at Maine Veterans Home, Scarborough. Harry was born on July 23, 1929, in Naples, to Gardner and Hazel (Ayer) Wiley. His family moved to Norway when he was very young.

Harry graduated from Norway High School, class of 1947. He was very involved in extracurricular activities and earned letters in football, basketball and baseball.
His active participation in high school was a significant factor in enabling Harry to win a four year scholarship to Colby College. During college, he was a member of the baseball and golf teams, and he was also the president of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.

Mr. Wiley honorably served his country in the United States Army, having served in the Korean War. He was a member of the highly decorated 2nd Infantry Division, where he was also highly decorated.
Upon his discharge from the Army, Mr. Wiley returned to work with the New England Telephone Company in Portland. Harry held a number of management positions that required relocation throughout New England. After nearly three decades of living throughout New England, Mr. Wiley eventually returned to Maine in 1983.
Harry was very active in churches through the northeast. Mr. Wiley has served on numerous advisory committees including the board of trustees, finance committees, building fund co-chair, and as a three term Parish Council president of St. Maximilian Kolbe Parish.

On 10 occasions, Harry and his wife Mary Lou had hosted annual healing services led by Fr. McDonough of Boston. The Wiley's were comforted to know that a packed church always excited Fr. McDonough, demonstrating the countless number of people with sickness and other needs requiring the solace and comfort of a healing priest.
In addition to his involvement in the church, Harry served as an officer in a number of civic organizations including the Maine Sports Hall of Fame, Bell Atlantic Alumni Association, Stratton Woods Condominium Association and as a Colby College fundraiser.

Harry's hobbies included fishing, playing golf, traveling, visiting with family, and he was an avid defender of the Second Amendment to the Constitution. He vigorously defended this right to bear arms by chiding those in the media, police officials and politicians who would usurp that right of all citizens as he proudly supported that privilege to bear arms, having served in the Korean War and having qualified as a recipient of the "Biggest Bucks In Maine" club on two occasions.

Harry was predeceased by his first wife, Trudy, in 1989; and his brothers, Harold, George, Lester and Bud.
He is survived by his wife Mary-Lou Wiley of Scarborough; daughter, Cheryl Consonni of Connecticut, son, Harry Wiley, Jr. of New Hampshire; brother, Myron of Norway. Also survived by stepdaughters, Marianne Milano of Minnesota, and Paula Knapp of Pennsylvania; several grandchildren; nieces and nephews.
The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to the staff of the Maine Veterans Home, Hospice of Southern Maine and VNA for the compassionate care provided to Harry.

Visiting hours will be held on Friday from 4-7 p.m. in the Conroy-Tully Crawford South Portland Chapel, 1024 Broadway, South Portland. Prayers will be recited at the funeral home on Saturday at 10:15 a.m., followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. at St. Maximillian Kolbe Parish, 150 Black Point Rd., Scarborough. Burial will be held at a later date. To share an online condolence with the family, please visit

DANVERS: John E. “Jack” Doherty, 82, of Danvers, passed away peacefully Tuesday evening, December 29, 2015 at his home with his loving family by his side. He was born in Salem, on August 8, 1933 and was raised in Peabody. He was the son of the late Frank and Mary (Mc Mahon) Doherty. After Graduating from Peabody High School, class of 1951, he enlisted in the United States Navy and was stationed in Japan as a high speed radio operator responsible for copying and deciphering the coded transmissions of Russian submarines during the Korean War. After his honorable discharge from the Navy, he enrolled at Boston University and completed the four year Bachelor of Arts program in three years with a degree in economics.

He was a loving and devoted husband of Ann M. (Cody) Doherty with whom he shared 57 years of marriage. Shortly after their marriage, with Ann at his side, Jack began his career as a Sales Representative with the Yellow Pages division of the New England Telephone Company until it later became Bell Atlantic, NYNEX and Verizon. He proudly retired in 2000 after 40 years of service. During his years with the Yellow Pages, Jack was involved with the Communications Workers of America for many years in increasing capacities including a nine year term as President of the CWA Local 1301 form 1978 to 1987. During these years, there was substantial growth in the Sales channel at the telephone reps. Jack’s quick wit, sense of humor and legendary negotiating tactics resulted, without doubt, in the best union contract for pay and benefits in the country during that time.
His high school yearbook states that his ambition was to make a new friend every day. While he may not have achieved that objective, no one can say it was for lack of effort. He would talk with anyone, anywhere. He simply loved people. He enjoyed golf because it provided him an opportunity to be outdoors with his wife, children and friends. He was a long time member of the Salem Country Club where his self-effacing sense of humor brought a smile to everyone he met. Most of all, he loved his family. His family was the most important thing in his life. He was devoted to his wife, children and grandchildren. Despite the daily demands of his career, he always made time for each of them individually. Jack and Ann raised their family in Danvers. He was a communicant of St. Richard’s Parish. Following the interests of his children, Jack became active in coaching youth sports. He served as a manager with the American and National Senior Little Leagues, and coached the Chief’s to the “Onion Bowl” championship of the Danvers Youth Football league. He will be missed by many. In addition to his loving wife who cared for him throughout his extended illness, his survived by his sons, Daniel W. Doherty and his wife, Corrine of Danvers, John M. Doherty and his wife, Ann Marie of Walpole, Jeffrey C. Doherty and his wife, Christine of Melrose, and his daughter, Susan M. Little and her husband, Michael of Beverly. He is also survived by his beloved grandchildren, Peter and his wife, Jessica of Groton, Thomas and Bridget of Walpole, Samantha and Daniel of Danvers, and Shelby, Jessica and Alexis of Melrose. He is also survived by his brother, Rev. Daniel F. Doherty, O.P. and was predeceased by his brother, Gerald P. Doherty of Peabody.
A Visitation will be held on Sunday, Jan. 3, 2016 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Conway, Cahill-Brodeur Funeral home at the 82 Lynn St., Peabody facility. A funeral Mass will be celebrated on Monday, January 4, 2016 at 10 a.m. in St. John the Baptist Church, 16 Church St., Peabody. Relatives and friends are kindly invited.

Good Afternoon YP Alumni Friends…

 This is Kevin Jones, former NYNEX/Bell Atlantic/Verizon employee.  I wanted to write you and give you a brief update on my Dad – Dick Jones.  As most of you know, my Dad is a very active guy – playing golf, cutting his own lawn, cleaning his own gutters, painting windows on the second floor of his house on a ladder! At the beginning of the year, his back started to bother him and sought professional help from an orthopedic surgeon.  On July 8th, Dad went in for back surgery at Roger Williams Hospital in Providence.  The surgery was a much larger ordeal than any of us expected.  What was supposed to be a 45 minute surgical procedure ended up being almost 3 ½ hours!  He spent the next week recovering at the hospital and then went to rehab.  While in rehab – he contracted a NASTY infection which immediately returned him to the emergency room and the hospital for another 10 days of close supervision.  In early August, Dad was released again to the Elmhurst Rehabilitation center to begin his recovery.  Since then he has continued to become stronger and stronger.  He continues to fight the infection and is on a course of aggressive antibiotics daily.  I visit him daily and noticed today at breakfast that he has cast aside his walker and is walking on his own!  Every day is better than the next.  I don’t know when he’ll be playing golf again or cutting his own lawn – but I know that he is determined to remain independent and return home to my Mom and get things “back to normal”.  Dad would love to hear from his old friends – he can be reached at 401-829-2687 or you can mail him at 2 Meadowbrook Drive, Barrington Rhode Island 02806.

 Dad also wanted me to write you and update you on the 10th Annual Ken Premo Golf Open at Lake Morey Vermont.  The tournament was held this year in June and was attended by 22 golfers.   Members of Kenny’s family included Ken Premo Junior, Chuck and Chris Costas (Kenny’s son-in-law and grandson), and my Dad, brother Alan and me (Kenny was our Uncle).  Additionally, NYNEX Alumni Tony Foglia and his wife Barbara were in attendance.  If anyone is interested in participating in the event next year – please call my Dad @401-829-2687 or Tony Foglia @ 603-401-7682.

Kathleen Elizabeth (Healy) Palmer died on December 19, 2014 in West Newton, MA. She was born in Boston, MA on April 18, 1914, the loving daughter of James and Mary Ann (McCaffrey) Healy. Kay’s beloved husband, Leo L. Palmer, whom she married November 20, 1941 died on September 14, 1974.  She was preceded in death by her loving parents James and Mary Ann, brother James, sister Rosemary and her husband Bert and her beloved son Leo C. Palmer who died on September 25, 2005.  She is survived by her loving daughter Claire Palmer  and loving son James and his girlfriend Sue, loving grandson Thomas and his good friend Ryan, loving granddaughter Kristine and her husband Kevin and their children Jacob and Abby, loving grandson Leo L. II, and Nancy the mother of Thomas and Kristine..

Known throughout her life as “Kath” in her younger years and later as “Kay”, she was a proud graduate of Notre Dame Academy, Roxbury campus which she supported each year since her graduation in 1932. 

Our Mom was selfless and also very strong.  She was a dutiful daughter, the sweetest sister, a loving wife, nurturing mother, loving grandmother and great-grandmother, amazing aunt, caring cousin, a fabulous friend and a faithful Roman Catholic parishioner, to name a few.  She had an incredibly big heart filled with love, forgiveness and patience.  She was genuine and humble.  She was graceful under pressure and very smart.  She laughed and smiled a lot and looked for joy in the darkest of days.  She had perseverance and strength when others would have faltered.

Kathleen worked at McLellan’s Department Store on Dudley Street in Roxbury where she met our Dad Leo who was originally from Adams, MA. She was a loyal member of the Blessed Sacrament Church Women’s Club in Jamaica Plain until she moved to West Newton in 1972. Kay worked at the Wyman Street polls in Jamaica Plain for a number of years at election times, loved working at Jones Camera & Gift Shop in JP, and was a well-respected salesperson at Grover Cronin’s in Waltham, working in the second floor women’s sports apparel for 11 years.

Our Mom had many close friends whom we affectionately called “The Girls”. They would meet monthly at one of their homes for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed each other’s company. As her friends passed away Mom would say, “I have to make new friends.”

The family thanks Mom’s physicians, Dr. Nicholas Mascoli, Dr. Regis Boudreau, Dr. Paul Birnbaum, Dr. Meena Sundaram for the excellent care they provided our Mom. Over the years office visits involved not only checkups but a chance for Mom to exchange updates on the family and to pass along a good joke.

We will miss our Mom greatly but know that she will be joining our Dad, her parents, siblings, and her son to watch over us.  Rest in Peace Mom.

Visiting hours from 4pm-8pm on Monday December 22, 2014 at the Mann & Rodgers Funeral Home, 44 Perkins Street Jamaica Plain, MA 02130.  A Mass of Christian burial will be held at St. Bernard’s Church 1523 Washington Street West Newton, MA 02465 at 10:00 am on Tuesday December 23, 2014.  In lieu of flowers Mom’s wish is that you do a good deed for another.

He is preceded in death by his brother James (Mary) "Jimmy" Moran of Canton, MA.

Jack was raised in Milton, MA. He graduated from Milton High School in 1959. He attended Northeastern University from 1959-1964 where he played football and received a degree in Business Management. He proudly served as a member of the United States Army Reserves from 1965-1969, at which time he received an honorable discharge. He worked for the Roadway Corporation from 1964-1967 and the Mobil Oil Corporation from 1967-1996 at which time he retired at age 55.

Jack was married to his beautiful bride Mary Connolly Moran on September 18, 1965 in Hyannis, MA and enjoyed 49 years of marriage until the time of his passing. Jack was the beloved father of seven children: John F. Moran Jr., and wife Kelly of Downingtown, PA, Peter J. Moran and wife Courtney of Denver, PA, Sheila E. Moran of Denver, PA, Michael P. Moran and wife Theresa of Annville, PA, Ryan D. Moran and wife Annette of Elizabethtown, PA and Erin E. D'Imperio and husband David of Strasburg, PA. He was preceded in death by a daughter Patricia "Patty" E. Moran, who died in childbirth.

Family was always the most important thing to Jack and something he has instilled in his own children. He leaves a legacy that includes 21 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren, by far his proudest accomplishment. He loved each and every one of them: Joshua, Brittany, Connor, Aiden, Ryan, Robert, Brandi, Falin, Chandler, Hope Grace, Peter Jr., Alexis, Caitlin, Michael Jr., Samantha, Jonathan, David, Meghan, Shane, Brady, Jayden, Tristan, Liam Grace, Colin Fitzpatrick, Kaiden and Ariah.

Jack was an avid golfer who never had a bad day on the golf course. It brought him great pleasure to spend time with his brothers, sisters, sons, nephews, nieces, grandchildren and anyone else who wanted to join him on the golf course. It wasn't unusual for him to play 36 or even 48 holes of golf in a day. He was never short on unsolicited advice on how to fix "your swing," even when he was duck-hooking it into the woods, and he never let his brothers "sandbag" on their handicaps.

Despite not living in the New England area for decades, Jack never lost his roots. He still carried a great passion for this two favorite sports teams, the New England Patriots and the Boston Red Sox, a passion he passed on to his children and even many of his grandchildren. It is a passion they proudly wear and one that holds many fond memories.

Goodbye for now Jack ... "You have fought the good fight, you have finished the race, you have kept the faith ... now enter into your reward." 2 Timothy 4:7-8
