The death has occurred of John O'LEARY
Kilkenny City, Kilkenny
John Anthony O’Leary
September 3, 1971 – June 6th, 2021.
Born to Margaret (nee O'Reilly) & John O’Leary in the Bronx, NY where he lived his life.
From the time he was in high school, he had dreams of being a Police Officer. He joined the NYPD in 1995 & was promoted in 2001 to Detective, personally by the Police Commissioner. This was a very proud moment in his life. After serving NYPD 20 years, John retired in 2015.
When we think of John, we remember laughter, kindness, and someone you can always count on. He was taken from us way too soon, and he will be sorely missed. He is survived by his sister Heather and extended family, his family in Ireland, the O'Reilly and Mullins families and his many friends.
May John Rest in Peace.
