He doted on his loving grandchildren Patrick, Sarah, Brian, Maria, Tim, Meghan, John, Chloe, Julia and Abby. He is a special uncle to his 23 nieces and nephews.

He shared his time in Boston, Cape Cod and Florida where he golfed when he was not supporting the Sox, Bruins, Pats, GAA, Oughterard, Galway and Ireland. A proud member of the hole-in-one club.  His witness to his grandchildren’s milestones meant his handicap remained in single figures.
