Thomas J. Dennehy
Thomas J. Dennehy, of Wellesley, formerly of Charlestown died April 22, 2017 at the age of 86. Born in Charlestown, to the late Thomas and Katherine (McCarthy), Tom attended Charlestown High School before beginning a 40-year career as a truck driver and member of the Teamsters Local 25. A proud veteran of the United States Army, he served in the 75th Field Artillery Battalion during the Korean War and has been a life-long member of both the VFW and the Korean War Veteran’s Association, chapter 300. After completing his service, Tom met the love of his life Alice J. Donahue and the couple were married at St. John the Evangelist Parish in Wellesley Hills on September 14, 1958. They settled in Wellesley where they raised their four children. Tom and Alice celebrated 55 years of marriage before her death in 2014. Tom served the community of Wellesley as a Captain on the Wellesley Special Police. He will be remembered for his devotion to Boston sports teams, particularly the Patriots and Red Sox, and for his daily walks around the neighborhood, often stopping to chat with neighbors or an officer on patrol.
He is survived by his children Thomas E. Dennehy and wife Sarah of Easton, James M. Dennehy and wife Cynthia of Stow, Maureen K. Dennehy of Natick and Timothy D. Dennehy and wife Julie of Medway. He was the dear brother of Mary J. Morrissey and Kathleen P. Dennehy of Charlestown and the late John J.
