John was such a fun person to be around ! He always had a smile and happy spirit. He made All near him smile too! On occasions when John attended the Memory Cafe, his sister Kathy would join him - my heart shared their joy as they spent time together having fun and enjoying each other’s company! My condolences to the Kiley family! Sandy Boyer

i believe i told a version of this story on john's father's memoriam. his father and i always had a "strained" relationship. he as a vice principal at morton jr. high and then again as a VP at durfee, me as a student. what his dad never knew was that as a camper at the Catholic Boy's Day Camp, which was on the St. Vincent de Paul property along with a Nazereth Hall facility, john was one of two particular campers from Nazereth Hall that i had befriended and defended. may he RIP

Have great childhood memories with the Kileys and O'Briens camping at Pine Knoll in New Hampshire, and so glad I got to see Johnny again after so many years for Jean's 90th birthday.

Hoping memories like these and the many others you have with Johnny bring smiles with the tears.

To Johnny's family,
In the late 60's, it was my distinct pleasure, to be a counselor at the Nazareth Hall Camp in Westport, Ma.,
where Johnny was a camper.
He was an affectionate and kind hearted boy, and always a "happy camper."
Years later, Johnny would still greet me at mass at St. Joe's, with energetic high fives and warm hugs.
It was my joy to be able to work with God's little earth angels at that camp. It opened my eyes to the love Johnny and those campers had for everyone.
Now, it is Johnny 's joy, to be among God's heavenly angels, reunited with his loving parents, Maureen and Jack.
May each of the happy memories you have of Johnny 's fifty-nine years with you, be your comfort at this time.
Peace to his soul...Peace to your hearts.

With deepest sympathy and God's blessings,

Pat Smith
