Jack Denehy, who founded the Memorial Military Museum in Bristol more than 35 years ago, died late Friday. He was 75.
Jack was a gracious gentleman, known to so many in town for his work with the military museum, the Bristol Historical Society, veterans organizations and the Bristol Choral Society.
He was a husband, father, grandfather and friend. He was loved and respected and will be missed by many.
My sympathies to his wife Carol, their children and grandchildren and their many friends.
I wrote a story about Jack which will probably run in Sunday's edition of The Bristol Press, http://www.bristolpress.com/.
Friends just called with information about the funeral services for Jack.
Calling hours are Tuesday from 5-8 p.m. at O'Brien Funeral Home in Forestville. A funeral service will be Wednesday at 11 a.m. at St. Ann Church, with military honors at the church.
