Local 281 Loses a Great One - Kevin Connolly, Sr.
Thursday, December 20, 2018
It is with heavy hearts that we inform you of the loss of Brother Kevin Connolly. Kevin joined our Local at the young age of 20. As a 45-year member, Kevin spent much of his career as a Fitter at Superior Mechanical. He held many positions as an Officer, and after 30 years of service, Kevin became an Organizer from 2004-2007, and retired as a Business Agent in 2013. Kevin was well loved and respected in the field.
Kevin is survived by his loving wife, Sharon, two daughters, Shannon (Matt) and Patti Ann (Ricky), and two sons, both proud members of Local 281, Patrick (Mindy) and Kevin Jr. (Allison). A true family man, Kevin enjoyed spending countless hours with their grandchildren, Brandon, Brayden, Calleigh, Dylan, Emma, Jordyn and Patrick Jr.
Visitation will be held Sunday, December 23rd from 1-7 p.m. at Robert J. Sheehy & Sons Funeral Home, 9000 W. 151st Street, Orland Park, IL. Funeral will be held Monday, December 24th 8:15 a.m. from Sheehy & Sons to St. Francis of Assisi Church, 15050 Wolf Road, Orland Park, IL 60467 for a Mass at 9:00 a.m. Interment at Good Shepherd Cemetery 16201 S 104th Avenue, Orland Park, IL.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Kevin was a wonderful friend and teacher to many. He will not soon be forgotten.
