Obituary

Thomas F. Conneely, 84, of Newton, MA, died on Monday, February 24, 2020, after battling vascular dementia for more than a year. Beloved husband of Anne Conneely (Cloherty) for more than 50 years, Tom was born in Oughterard, County Galway, Ireland, Sept. 30, 1935, and moved to the U.S. in the late 1950s. In addition to his wife, Tom is survived by his five children, Francis, Sean, Anne, Patrick and Owen. He is also survived by his sister Mary Angela, his brother, Patrick and numerous nephews and nieces in the U.S. and Ireland. For more than 35 years, Tom ran his own exterior/interior painting company, with countless customers throughout the greater Boston area. In addition, he was employed at Raytheon in the Painting Department from 1974 until his retirement in September 2001.
During his retirement, he was an active in the Knights of Columbus, achieving membership in the Fourth Order of the organization. Tom also became one of the most devout fans of Red Sox Nation, watching nearly every game for years. He also enjoyed playing the slot machines at the local casinos and, occasionally, in Las Vegas. While he was wresting with his dementia, he started coloring and this proved to be a wonderful pastime for him.
