John Peter Connolly

May 26, 1948 - December 27, 2018

Franklin - John Peter Connolly Jr, 70, son of the late John Peter Connolly Sr. and Beatrice Evelyn Connolly (Manning), peacefully passed surrounded by his family on the 27th of December at Togus Veterans Hospital.

John was a long time resident of Quincy, Massachusetts and retired to Maine several years ago. He worked as a Union Boilermaker for over 25 years. He served honorably in the United States Army in the Vietnam War from 1968 to 1969 under Specialist 4.

John, also known as Grumpa, enjoyed the simple things in life. He always enjoyed time with his children and grandchildren teaching them some of his favorite pastimes. Boating, fishing, music and working with his hands were some of his favorites. He was loving, thoughtful and generous to all his friends and family and never missed playing a good prank.

John is survived by his sister Barbara Sogliuzzo (brother-in-law, Ralph Sogliuzzo), sister, Joanna Wheelock, his children, Susan Clark (son-in-law Thomas Clark), son, John Connolly (daughter-in-law, Kathy Connolly) and daughter, Claudia Barry (son-in-law James Barry), his grandchildren, Kayla, Brittany, Ariana, Jared, Lauren, Kaitlyn, and Brayden.
