James Edward O'Halloran (68) of Boston passed away on Thursday, January 25th, after a short hospital stay.
James was born into a proud Irish-American family on August 15th,1955 to Thomas E. (“Big Ed”) and Margaret M. O'Halloran (nee Rooney) in Washington Heights, Manhattan, NY, the 5th of six siblings.
Shortly after graduating from Bishop DuBois High School in 1973, Jimmy enlisted in the U.S. Navy. While in the Navy he served 3 years in various countries in Europe, and then settled in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, where he met his former wife, Patricia Lieber. They were married for more than 20 years and had two children, Jennifer and Daniel.
After working for more than 40 years, he retired as Supervisor of Environmental Engineering from the Veterans Administration Hospital in Boston where he was a well-respected, fair-minded, no-nonsense boss.
Jim, a proud Navy veteran, was a kind-hearted, easygoing, unassuming, one-of-a-kind guy who loved his son and daughter. He also enjoyed big family reunions with all of his cousins and annual trips to Atlantic City with his sisters. Other relatives would sometimes partake in the happy family lunacy, including his son, daughter, brother, and nephew.
Jim is survived by his children, Jennifer O’Halloran and Daniel O’Halloran, and his five siblings Kathleen Campbell, Maureen McNamara, Margaret Correa, Eileen O'Halloran, and Thomas O'Halloran - who were known as “The Lucky Six.” He is also survived by his daughter-in-law, Chanel Smith, his siblings’ spouses, Orlando Correa and Anna O'Halloran, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and former in-laws.
He will truly be missed by all who loved him so deeply.
