Joseph Fenton

December 31, 2022


Joseph Fenton of Milton passed away December 31st at home surrounded by his loving family.  His family is heartbroken to share that our dear uncle Joe Fenton passed this afternoon at home the way he wished - peacefully and surrounded by many of those who loved him. He was a wonderful son, brother, brother in law, uncle, cousin and friend. Always a gentleman - kind and caring.....he remembered what each niece or nephew (grandnieces and grandnephews included) did for work or fun - was genuinely interested and always asked about whatever it was. He loved all things Ireland, sports and the horses and loved sharing those interests with us all.  He lived a long full life - born in Carraroe Co Galway - he moved to England in 1954, short pit stop in Boston, Brooklyn for 40 years, back to Galway, settling back in Boston over 10 years ago.  Uncle Joe coming from NY was always a treat when we were little - he spoiled us all!  We were all so lucky to have him in our lives as long as we did and will never forget him.  Joe loved and appreciated his entire family.  Rest in Peace Uncle Joe - thank you for all the love you shared with us  ❤️��� .
