JOBIT: Hyland, John P. [MC1952 RIP] on 2017-Jun-04



In Memory of
John Hyland
January 29, 1928 – June 4, 2017

John P. Hyland of Greenwich, CT passed away peacefully the evening of June 4th, 2017, surrounded by his loving family at the age of 89. He died exactly in the manner in which he preferred, simply and quietly, and knowing how very loved he was. John, or Jack, (as he was known to family and friends), was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Following high school, he enlisted in the Navy and served in the cleanup of World War II. When he arrived home, he graduated from Manhattan College and earned his law degree at Fordham University. Jack was married to Maureen Ann Thompson (1931-2013). Together, they raised six children and were proud of all their accomplishments. Jack had a distinguished career as a senior executive at General Re Insurance for nearly 40 years. He was well respected and derived great satisfaction from his work.

Jack was an avid movie buff, a staunch Republican and a talented teaser. He always enjoyed some good banter with his friends and family. His happiest times were spent with his friends and family summering at his beloved Candlewood Knolls in New Fairfield, CT. He found the community back in 1962 and was delighted that his grandchildren now call it their favorite place on earth. All who knew him will remember him in his familiar resting pose: in his recliner, watching a great old movie with a friend while sipping on a Bailey’s. He will be sincerely missed by all those who came to know him and whose lives he touched with his kindness.

Jack is survived by his six children and their spouses (Annmary (Rich), Michael (Ann), Patrice (Herb [1950-2009]), John (Nancy), Maura (Michael) & Peter (Brigg), thirteen grandchildren (Bobby, Mikey, Matthew, Johnny, Emma, Annie, Bissy, Jennifer, Daniel, Geoffrey, Helen, Thompson & Bronwyn) and one great-grandchild (Jackson), as well as his sister Mary, his brother Bill, his sister in laws (Ruby, Ursula, Geri), and his many beloved nieces and nephews.

Jack’s recliner is vacant now and his glass is empty but our hearts are full and our memories are sweet. He honored his family in the manner in which he lived his life. We are forever grateful for the lifetime of lessons he taught us and, the love shared with us.

A memorial mass celebrating John’s life will be held AT 11AM on Saturday, June 10, 2017 at St. Michael the Archangel Church, 469 North Street, Greenwich, CT 06830
